Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful.
-1 Corinthians 1:27 NLT
How many times have you told yourself you’re not good enough for God? The truth is, God specializes in using broken vessels.
Rahab, a prostitute, saved Israelite spies from the men of Jericho and became a part of Jesus’ lineage. Moses, a murderer, delivered the children of Israel from Egypt. David, an adulterer, was considered a man after God’s own heart. A talking donkey saved the prophet from being killed by the Angel of the Lord. Paul, a persecutor of Christians, went on to write about two-thirds of the New Testament.
What’s holding you back? Choose today to go beyond your own limitations. Give God the broken pieces of your life. The weaknesses you are ashamed of are the perfect message of His grace. He is able to use the mess of your life and turn it into a message of hope.
You have a unique story of God’s grace to share with those who find themselves in similar situations. When you become transparent about God’s love and acceptance, it inspires others to believe. Someone is waiting on what you have to offer.
- Ask God to help you see yourself through His eyes.
- Ask God to help you give the same grace He has given you to impact the lives of others.
