GOD'S OPEN DOOR
This months featured Cd "Following God's Plan with Dennis McKay"
Standing before God's open door! We are there! God is getting ready to open a door for many of us who are ready to go to the next level. Many people who have tied their ministries with Lonesome Road Ministries and the 3 Fold Cord Conference has seen God open doors for them that they never thought or dreamed possible. God has so much more for each one of us to do if we will just step out and say here am I Lord use me! God is ready to move, and if we want to see God move then all we have to do is step out and step up and start moving. God lives in us so if we want to see God move then all we have to do is start moving. We are the hands and feet of God because He lives in us.
Many people say if I only knew what God wanted me to do I would go out and do it. I think we have all said this at one time on another. Well guess what it is in the book, what God wants us to do? It is called the great commission. Go ye therefore and preach the gospel to every creature! Go into all the world and preach the Gospel! Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father The Son and The Holy Ghost! Go out into the highways and the hedges and compel folks to come in so that my house will be filled. It is that simple, Go, Go, Go, Go ye therefore and do what God has called you to do!
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Acts 4:13 it reads; Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
I love this verse in the Bible, it gives all of us hope because no matter who we are God has more for each of us. The religious and highly educated were amazed when they saw these ordinary men (just fishermen) who God had transformed into (fishers of men). Each one of us who the Holy Spirit lives in has the boldness if we will just let go and let God use us. Each one of us can be more than just ordinary we can be great if we allow the Holy Spirit to work through us.
Worldly wisdom says that extraordinary people and abundant resources are needed for great tasks, yet the Lord often chooses the small and insignificant to achieve His purposes on earth.
God specializes in using people who aren't naturally qualified to accomplish His tasks. Moses was a verbally impaired 80-year-old shepherd who liberated a nation. After Gideon hid from the enemy, God made him a Mighty warrior. David was the overlooked youngest son who killed a giant with a small stone and became Israel's greatest king.
God isn't looking for impressive people; He wants willing ones who will bow their knee in humble submission. Being weak and ordinary doesn't make you useless. Rather, it positions you for a demonstration of divine power in your life. He takes insignificant ones and delights in making them great.
Have you ever considered that your lack of ability, talent, or skill is the ideal setting for a great display of Christ's power and glory? If you are willing to submit to His leading and venture into the scary yet rewarding territory of faith and obedience, He will do great things in and through you. Are you ready to be one of God's chosen? Then take that step of faith, and say here am I Lord use me, and watch what only God can do in you and through you!

I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
