– Hosea 11:1 (NIV)
The prophet Hosea does not seem like a likely candidate to offer a prophecy on Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, this biblical prophecy about the Messiah emerges from the object lesson emerges from this minor prophet. God uses Hosea just like he can use any us to accomplish anything that He desires to do. I learned after reading Andrew Murray’s God’s Plans for You that God can use us in all sorts of ways.
Those of the faith are the “called out.” God calls us out from among the world to stand out among the world. He causes us to live differently. He calls us out to make us useful.
God calls on us to use us. After making us useful, He can choose to use us for His glory. He can call on us and He should be able to count on us. If God gave you an assignment like He did with Hosea, could He count on you to through on it? Would you bring glory to God by how you handled it?
