You Are His Funnel

Written by Shana Schutte

You can always be His funnel in every situation and every circumstance.”

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – November 6, 2022

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

Early in my career as a writer, God gave me an open vision. I was awake and my eyes were open, but in my mind’s eye I saw myself seated at a small desk with pen in hand and a journal in front of me. Jesus stood to my right, and he was talking to me. I didn’t hear what he was saying, but I knew he was giving me words to put on the page. In my vision, I was listening to him and writing down what He said. I knew He was showing me that I am simply His funnel and that He will always give me words to write. All I have to do is ask for His help.  

Since then, I cannot tell you the number of times when I have sat with pen and journal in hand, empty without anything to pour out, and I have said, “Lord, please give me something to share. Please give me your words.” Without fail, He has provided, showed up and enabled me to be His funnel.

Being a funnel in life isn’t just for writers. It’s for all people, big and small. 

You can be His funnel when you reach out to others to speak words of grace and truth. 

You can be His funnel when you discipline your children and show them His way. 

You can be His funnel when you share your financial resources to be a blessing. 

You can be His funnel when use your creativity to paint, draw, or sing. 

You can always be His funnel in every situation and every circumstance to do His will, be a blessing, and bring His light into the world. 

Notice the words, “Can be.” There are times when I have been empty without words to share and I haven’t asked the Lord for His help. I haven’t asked Him to give me His thoughts. I haven’t asked Him to guide me in what I share—and I have felt it. It’s been arduous, difficult, painful, and unpleasant. 

But when I have asked for His help, it’s been easier and life-giving, (definitely for me and hopefully for those who read) as I have been led by His Spirit. 

My question for you today is: Will you be His funnel? If you answered yes, let me encourage you. It’s not that difficult. It only requires three things: 

  1. A humble heart. 
  2. A willingness to ask for help in doing His will and 
  3. Slowing down long enough to hear. 

When you decide to be His funnel and you ask Him to help you do His will, it doesn’t mean it will be easy, but it does mean that it will be easier than doing any task or action in your own strength.

“For the Kingdom of God is . . . righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Romans 14:17).


Lord, I ask that you would give me what I need to be your funnel today in my relationships, in my work, in my family, and in all other areas of my life. You are always willing and ready to guide and direct me. I ask for your help today in showing your light to others. I’m ready to be your funnel. Amen.


Ask the Lord to help you to be His funnel today in the area where you most need it, then listen to Him for directions. Amen.
