God can do something great through you! -- Yes, you!
Posted: Wednesday, September 27
Verse of the day:
“Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.”
Like many of you I spent a good portion of my Saturdays this summer at graduation parties. Graduation parties are a great time of fellowship, delicious food and encouraging the recent graduate with kind words. Many of these words include phrases like, “you are going to do great things! You are going to be a word changer!” These are encouraging things to tell someone who is just starting out their adult life, but how often do you look yourself in the mirror and say the same thing? I’m guessing not often if ever.
We often doubt what God can do through us. It is hard to see the potential in ourselves that God sees. I’m sure that Abraham could never comprehend the destiny that God had for him when he looked in the mirror. We know Abraham and Sarah laughed in disbelief when they heard what God had in store. Have you ever felt God call you to something more but you counted yourself out? Or you convinced yourself that He couldn’t use you?
