In case you were feeling unpurposeful or unworthy, I just wanted to drop this in your Spirit- a little reminder for yourself that I use to encourage MYself…
- 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.
- Judas was disloyal.
- 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!
If you ever feel like you are not worthy- not only to be used, but just to be saved, remember that Jesus used a bunch of broken people to share hope to a broken and corrupt world.
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!
“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
Me when I’m confident in My Savior! Is He in you? #theJustifier.
