God's plan for you
September 10, 2009
God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong….
--1 Corinthians 1:27
Have you ever felt small or insignificant? Everyone has at some point.
The good news, however, is that God never thinks of you or me as small or insignificant. In fact, the God of all history has called you and me to make a significant difference in this world!
It's true. No matter what your background, no matter what your status, your education, or pedigree, God has a plan to use you in amazing ways.
Just think about Esther. God used her courage and conviction to save her people from certain death. But there was no way that Esther, an orphaned Jew who had been living in bondage, should have come queen of a nation! No chance except that God had chosen her.
And what about that impoverished couple, Mary and Joseph? They were complete nobodies in the eyes of the world. But God chose them to be the parents of the King of kings.
Can you see it? God delights in using the unknown and the unheralded. "God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong."
If you are a believer, God has chosen you. You were bought with a price. So yield yourself completely to his will and see the plans he has for you!
GOD DELIGHTS IN USING THE UNKNOWN AND UNHERALDED.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
