They called him a miracle worker. It was a miracle every time he worked.
But he went to church and was so moved by the message that he went forward during the invitation and professed to be converted. His family and friends were delighted when he prayed: "Dear Lord, save me and use me to Your glory." Unfortunately, he added: "I'm available whenever You need me to provide guidance to others who need help and direction."
God does not need our advice, He needs our attention. He does not need our suggestions, He needs our service. He does not need our words, He needs our wills. He does not need our heads, He needs our hearts.
