Last week I walked into Sheetz and stepped up to the MTO (Made To Order) kiosk to place an order. As I checked off my requests for different items, my mind began to wander, “What if we could do this for our spiritual lives?”
I trust that when I pray to the Lord, the Master MTO Specialist, to help increase these things in me…He will do it! When I submit my requests, He hears me and goes right to work to bring about His very best for me.
Once our prayers have been answered, we must do our part. If we order our item from Sheetz and never ingest it, it has no benefit. Therefore, while He is faithful to always answer these prayers…we must internalize and practice what He has graciously handed us. We need to ask Jesus to help us live out this new gift! He will show us every step of the way. We are never left alone to figure it out!
My list, of course, is much longer than just the Fruit of the Spirit. But without the Lord working inside of me, I would surely find that without Him, my checklist is worthless garbage. He makes the difference.
Let us forge ahead with confidence that when we ask, He goes right to work to build inside of us a woman of faith that looks an awful lot like her Daddy.
Your MTO Specialist is standing by!
