Often, we find ourselves doubting God's purpose for our lives. We feel like we're not good enough. We feel like there are many others who are more qualified to tell people about God's love than we are.
But we each have unique gifts. We have unique talents. And God will use each of us if we let him
We feel like God wouldn't use me, God wouldn't choose me. But why not? God has been using imperfect people for his good all through time. God used Paul despite the evil things the had done while still bearing the name Saul. He shined a light in Saul's path and helped him make a change. And Paul went on to do a lot of good and write much of the new testament.
There are no limits to what God can do with any one of our lives. But it is up to us to let him. To allow him to work through us. To be open to the good that he can do through us.
To know that God sees something good in us. He loves us. And he has a purpose for us.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Why would God choose you? Why wouldn't he choose you?
Why wouldn't he want you to walk according to his purpose, to do good for his kingdom?
You are enough. God created you. He wants you to serve him.
To come before him, just as you are.
You don't have to be afraid that you won't know what to do or have the right words to speak. God will give you words. He will be with you.
You just need to choose to follow him.
For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict.Luke 21:15
