Our God will never waste anything that has happened in our lives! Romans 8:28 reminds us that, “We know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” God is the greatest surgeon of all times! He is able to take our cuts, scrapes, bruises, wounds, and our shattered-brokenness to create something beautiful. So, if you ever felt like you’re not worthy to be used by God, let alone loved by him, just remember that Jesus used a bunch of flawed people (Moses, Noah, Peter, and Paul…) to share hope to a flawed, shattered, and broken world. In God, we find renewal, mending, healing, and purpose. Jesus didn’t call the equipped, He equipped the called. Therefore, no matter what you’ve been through in life, remember that the same power that conquered the grave lives and reigns within you. Despite what the devil says, you are worthy of life. You are worthy of God’s love. You are worthy of joy. You are worthy of a fulfilling purpose that will take you places beyond your wildest dreams. Never forget that when you view your life from an outside perspective, you will see that it doesn’t matter where you’re from, nor what you’ve done, or who you use to be; Jesus desires to use you for the glory of his will, plan, and purpose!
