He commissions

The Father

Matthew 9:38  therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

We’re not only called by God, but we’re sent by Him as well.  He calls us to be what He wants us to be and He sends us to do what He would have done.  God can do anything He wants in this world because He is all-powerful, but He chooses to use people to carry out His purposes in most cases.  We have the privilege of bearing the commission of the Lord.

When considering what it means to be commissioned, it’s important that we realize it’s more than just being sent.  The word commission carries with it the authorization of the sender, and even the granting of power to perform the duties one is commissioned to do.  Our Lord does not just send us, He empowers us to accomplish every act and every goal. One who is commissioned acts on behalf of the one who sent them.

The one who sends us is the Most High God, the creator and sustainer of all things.  He holds the universe in balance and He is more than capable of giving us what we need to succeed.  If we make ourselves available to do what He calls us to do, He will send us and equip us for the task.  He will look after us.
