God . . . energizes you, giving you both the desire and the power to act.—Phil. 2:13.


Jehovah can become whatever is necessary in order to accomplish his purpose. For instance, Jehovah has become a Teacher, a Comforter, and an Evangelizer, just to name a few of his many roles. (Isa. 48:17; 2 Cor. 7:6; Gal. 3:8) Still, he often uses humans to carry out his purposes. (Matt. 24:14; 28:19, 20; 2 Cor. 1:3, 4) Jehovah can also give any of us the wisdom and strength we need in order to become whatever is necessary to fulfill his will. This is all part of the meaning of Jehovah’s name, as it is suggested by a number of scholars. All of us want to be useful to Jehovah, but some may doubt that Jehovah is using them. Why? Because they feel limited by their age, circumstances, or abilities. On the other hand, others may be quite satisfied with what they are already doing and fail to see the need to make further progress. w19.10 20 ¶1-2

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

With regards to Jehovah, what do you want to do? Some may just say, whatever Jehovah asks me to do.  I think Jehovah waits for us to decide what we want to do and he blesses our efforts.  In the bible,  Tabitha made clothes for many needy ones. Cornelius provided gifts of mercy to many.  Joseph with the surname Barnabas was called son of comfort. We don't have to be a pillar in the congregation to do wonderful things that Jehovah can bless.  It just takes giving of ourselves.

The one showing favor to the lowly is lending to Jehovah

Sometimes Jehovah waits to bless us until one makes a firm commitment. As an example, a pioneer/elder in our Congregation shared his experience.  He was a publisher that wanted to start pioneering with his wife but he had a successful roofing business that he needed to sell first. He had some interest shown in the business but no commitments.  Time went by and In the end he decided to put in his application for regular pioneering and leave it Jehovah's hands.  He handed in his application and the very next day a person that had shown interest some 6 months earlier showed up at his home out of the blue and bought his business outright.  That was some years ago and he's been pioneering ever since. 

We cannot incite if we are not in sight.___Heb.10:24,25
