Get on Board!!!

John 9:4 KJV – I must work the works of him that sent me while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work.

While I breezed through the train station the other morning my only thought was getting on the train. I was running just a little late, and as soon as I slid my ticket into the reader I dashed up the escalator, not waiting for it to carry me up. As I reached the top, I saw a man who was ahead of me who was walking past the open doors of the waiting cars, to go up to the front of the train. Not wanting to risk missing the train, I entered the first available door and then started looking for a seat.

As I sat down, the bell rang, and the doors abruptly closed. As I looked out the window I was surprised to see that the man that was ahead of me never made it on the train. I watched his look of dismay as the train began to roll out of the station.

I was reminded of how we as believers need to “Get on Board” with what God is doing. His Spirit is on the move! The man had paid his ticket, and had every right to be on that train. But he did not board! Many are called and qualified, but not yet in position. The Bible says:

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him (2 Chronicles 16:9A).

We must make ourselves available to God , and he will lead us to the proper assignment.
