No man has a monopoly on God but God can monopolize a man. We see throughout the scriptures that when men fully yielded to the God of grace and mercy, He got a hold of them and fully used them to manifest Himself.

Ezekiel 22:30 So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.

We must understand that the physical world has been given to man and for any spirit being to express itself, it must find a material being through which it can manifest it’s agenda, desire, and will on the earth.

Even God in His power and sovereignty had to seek for a man to become His body (gate, door, hand, feet, mouth, etc.) through which He would manifest His desire on earth.

God limited Himself like this and that’s how man comes on the scene. That is why He is always on the lookout for men and women who have fully yielded themselves to Him so that His agenda, will, and purpose can find manifestation on the earth.

God is not looking for golden vessels; all that He is searching for are men and women who are fully yielded to His will.

Hebrews 10:7-8 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of Me—To do Your will, O God.’” 8 Previously saying, “Sacrifice and offering, burnt offerings, and offerings for sin You did not desire, nor had pleasure in them” (which are offered according to the law),

God is still in need of bodies (you and me) through which His will can be expressed on earth as He did with Jesus.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Our lives have already been designed by God and our greatest assignment after receiving Jesus is to discover His plan already ordained in our life.

Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

God knew you when you were a spirit being; He called and separated you. To Jeremiah, he was ordained to be a prophet, but for each one of us, there is a specific assignment in our lives.

God’s ways and plans are better than yours; He sees the end from the beginning. So, whatever He wants to do with and through you is based on His perfect will for your life.

Matthew 26:39 … “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

When you understand God’s will for your life, you will pray the prayer Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane.

1 Samuel 13:14 But now your kingdom shall not continue. The Lord has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the Lord has commanded him to be commander over His people, because you have not kept what the Lord commanded you.”

Can you be that body, man that the Master is looking for?

Remember Christmas is a story of a little girl who said yes to the Holy Spirit, you can also say yes to Him and give birth to what will change your environment.
