Can God really use me?
Have you ever asked that question? I know I have many times. When we felt like we are at our worst, we question if God could possibly use us. After all, we're not perfect, are we?
In actuality, we are perfected in Christ. He is the one that has done all the work. Look at Hebrews 10: 14-17, "For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."
Did you get that? You, who have been sanctified, that means "set apart." The Amplified Bible says consecrated and made holy." Jesus has made us perfect, because he was made perfect. Now if we are in Him and He is in us, we are what He is. 1 John 4:17..."As He is, so are we in this world." I know a lot of religious people are upset with me now, but read it for yourself. All we have to do is believe and walk in that belief. Walk in that love commandment.
I really suggest reading and studying the book of Ephesians. In it you will discover that: He has given us all that we need, God has made us new creations to do His work, His power is at work in us, He has given us teachers and preachers and prophets to help us along the way, we are children of light and we have the full armor of God.
Now if that doesn't get you going, I don't know what will.
Today, take the time to speak over your life. Tell yourself that you are able to do all that God has for you to do and that you are made perfect and that He loves you.
Occasionally Pastors Eric and Laura will write as the Lord leads them. There may be prophetic words or insights and revelation that have come to them. They share these with the intention that someone would be blessed and encouraged or admonished, something we all need once in a while.
