He’ll show us the way He works
So we can live the way we’re made

The phrases “let God use you” and “don’t let the devil use you” are regular responses to people’s behaviour we don’t appreciate or as a warning as to their next move, where I live.

Daily there are so many things and people trying to conform me into who they think I should be. Dress this way they instruct, act like this, on a constant it seems everyone somehow thinks they have the best version of me and so work to tailor me accordingly.

I get to remind me just as often – let only God use you, no one else should get that right. The only one I should be like, is the One who shed His blood for me, adopted me and called me by His name.

So I judge myself using His word and Spirit as measuring sticks. Did I represent His blue print? Did my choice please Him? Somewhere along life journey, I realised being a clone was okay. A okay as long as I was a clone of God, I am sure willing. My willingness ensures I spend time with Him, how else can I be like Him if not by investing my time in Him. It is a constant struggle, this is not one of those patterns that flow over time, never quite understood why.

Thus, daily I drag me to Him, the more I learn the better a clone I become, the more I become who I have been created to be. In this process I understand it’s a bit by bit walk, day to day. For each pull I get to become what people think or the social media creates, I resist big time and stay in Him to whom I rise and fall.

A willing clone I pray to always be.
