God has a chessboard! And He has a “game plan” which He wishes to accomplish. When we become yielded to Him He will begin to prepare us for “service”. And as we are molded and shaped in Him, He will set us in place on His “chessboard”.
He is preparing many for service, and it is important to stand in position wherever He places us, for a game cannot be won if some of the pieces are missing. When He begins to “move” He will need each person for a specific part of His plan.
How exciting it is to be used of Him! However, of this we cannot boast, for this is a “quiet work”. The “world” will not see the chessboard, but by the Spirit it will become very clear to those who love Him.
