Can I just encourage you today? Can I tell you that you are special and that God still has good things in store for you? You know the more that life has come against you, the more junk that you have been through, the more abused you have been, the more that God can use you!
I know that the enemy tries to tell us that what we have done has been so bad and so wrong that God will never forgive us and that he cant use us. He will say things Like, “who do you think you are? God cant use you, you’ve done this and you’ve done that. Your nobody.” He will try and condemn you for everything you have ever done, he will make you feel like you are a worthless piece of garbage. Always reminding you of your past failures and mistakes.
Let me just tell you that if you are hearing those things they are not from God. God will never condemn you, he will only convict you of what your doing, but that’s only to get you to say your sorry, so he can come in and help you.
But don’t fret we’ve all been there, we have all done stuff we shouldn’t have. But God loves us unconditionally anyway. In spite of the messes we make. See the enemy knows the power you have within you to reach Gods people. The more trials and tribulations you have faced the more people you can reach with your testimony.
Ever wonder why you just cant seem to get things to work out in your life? Its because the enemy knows you have something awesome within you and he will do everything to keep you in bondage and out of the presence of God. He knows that once you get a taste of who God really is you‘ll never be the same and he wont have any power over you.
Let me just tell you, It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or with who or how many times!! Allow God to use you to reach others who are hurting, and while your helping them you will be blessed and healed in the process.
The people who have experienced the most, have the most to share, after all you cant teach what you don’t know right? Those are the people that God needs, those are the people that God wants, those are the people that God is going to raise up, for this generation.
So I just want to encourage you today that no matter what the enemy tries to convince you of, no matter how bad your life has been, It doesn’t matter how many needles you have put in your arm or how many lines you’ve snorted. It doesn’t matter how many extra marital affairs you’ve had, or that you have been to prison.
Let me just tell you, God wants to use you right where you are!! God doesn’t expect you to come all clean shaven and all behaved and clean of drugs or alcohol. No!! He wants you just as you are, let him shape you and mold you, he’ll scrape away the junk.
All you need to do is come and say “ God I’m sorry, please for give me."
God needs people who have been hurt, God needs people who have been there, the people who have made the most mistakes. What better person to use than the person who has been there?
Let me just encourage you that God still has great things in store for you and it doesn’t matter what your age is, young or old. It doesn’t matter, because you are still a child of God. And the blessings that God has for you, he’s always had for you.
Waiting on a shelf in a box ready and waiting for you to reach in and wipe the dust off.
God has already forgiven you!! All you need to do now is forgive yourself, and let it go.
You’ve done it your way and it hasn’t worked out, why not try it Gods way?
He’s ready and waiting and he’s as close as your heart.
Be blessed and be encouraged
To God be the glory
