Your Zone Of Influence
19 October 2017
Ephesians 2:10 'For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.'
God has a zone of influence for your life. Before you were born God had set up a zone of influence for your life, an area where you can bring important change to the world around you. In sport, people talk about the 'zone of offence' and the 'zone of defence'. Team players are told to 'get into the zone'. It's time for you and I to do the same – to discover where God's sphere of influence is for us and then to invest our time and talents in that area. In some ways, that knowledge comes from experience – we see God's favour unfolding on our lives in certain areas as we faithfully serve him over time. But if we're not at least aware that we are called to have influence and that there's a 'zone' in which we can exercise great influence, we will never seek after it.
Prayer: 'God help me today to discover more of my zone of influence and to invest myself in that area of your favour.'
