In case you were feeling unpurposeful or unworthy of what you are being led to do, I just wanted to drop this in your Spirit- a little reminder for us all…
Jacob was a deceiver.
Moses was a stutterer.
Sarai was barren.
Abraham was old.
Elijah was suicidal.
David was a shepherd and grew up to be an adulterer and a murder.
Jeremiah was a boy.
Thomas was a doubter.
Peter was a fisherman.
Paul was an atheist.
Noah was a drunk.
Jonah was full of fear.
Rahab was a prostitute.
The Samaritan woman was a five-time divorcee.
Job went bankrupt.
Martha was always whining and complaining.
The disciples were unreliable- falling asleep and stuff, denying Jesus, betraying Him…geez
God does not call the qualified.
He qualifies those he call!
God knew we would fall short of his expectations. Which is why He extends relentless mercy and grace to help us fulfill His purpose. It is also why He sent His precious Spirit to keep us track, because we become so easily distracted.
No matter what you’ve been through in life, remember that the same power that conquered death, pulled you from death row and now lives within you.
The next time someone tries to remind you of who you USED to be, remind them of who your Savior is, through you!
You better recognize who He is and who He is in YOU! He made the ultimate decision to select you for a special assignment. This means he equipped you to carry it out. That’s so special.
God is the justifier.
“Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.” Romans 8:30-33 NKJV
