Maybe I'm not the only one.
As I read God's Word I'm reminded of three important truths that help me know that God is not finished with me and has plans for me, either doing what I'm doing now, or doing something completely different in the future. Either way, He's got a plan to use me and He has plans for you too.
- "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation," (2 Cor. 5:17 ESV).
- "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope," (Jer. 29:11).
- "And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ," (Phil. 1:6).
Yes, God did make me a new creature when He cleansed me from all of my sin when I accepted His Son Jesus. Yes, He does have plans to give me a future and a hope. And, yes, He did begin a good work in me and will bring it to completion.
Have you lost sight of these truths? Do you feel as if you are always waiting for God to use you?
God, in His timing, will give you the opportunity to use every gift He has given you as well as the power to accomplish His will in your life.
Don't give up . . .
you are not forgotten.
