God’s not done with you!
I am not sure who I am writing this to but I feel led to let someone know GOD’S NOT THROUGH WITH YOU!
It has been weeks, (maybe) months, maybe even years you have bought into the lie that “it’s over” when it comes to you doing something great for God. After all, you committed __________________ and because of that there is no way He could ever use you, or at least that’s what you’ve been led to believe.
Let me both encourage you, be very clear and to the point: If God were done with you then He would have killed you. The very fact that you have air in your lungs right now means that HE IS NOT THROUGH WITH YOU!
You messed up? Of course you did, you’ve heard me say it multiple times.
“All of God’s children have problems! If you go somewhere where they claim (or act like) they don’t, RUN!”
This being true still is NOT an excuse to go out and continue a downhill slide, but rather a reminder that in the Bible the ONLY people God used were people who had messed up (like you) and were broken.
- David committed adultery and murder (Think about it, David would not have been allowed to serve in or attend a lot of churches!). He also repented of his sin (see Psalm 51) and today we know him as “a man after God’s own heart!”
- Moses killed a man and God used him to lead the nation of Israel out of Egypt to the border of the Promised Land.
- Paul was a murderer and God used him to write most of the New Testament.
- Peter denied Christ, chose to walk away from Him and God used him to preach on the Day of Pentecost where 3,000 people accepted Christ in one day!
I could go on and on, but [hopefully] you get the point, your past does not disqualify you from an amazing future if you are in Christ. Yes, there are consequences for our actions but we act as if God is surprised of our shortcomings. Trust me He is not.
God’s not through with you and if you don’t let your past die then it will not let you live . The consequences of not letting it die is allowing the enemy to talk you out of the amazing things God has planned for you.
When we repent of sin (which is the most powerful thing we can do in our walk with Christ) we become unstoppable. If you have fallen, sinned, and/or screwed up but have repented of sin, then please (for the love of God almighty) STOP believing the lie that there is no way God could use you! Please look at I Corinthians 6:9-11 now.
God’s not through with you! Get up, Get on your feet and do what He has called you to do.
