I love lists (bet you would have NEVER figured that out on your own!)
However, today I wanted to simply make ONE point (ok…MAYBE there will be some subpoints to go along with it!)
BUT…before I share it I want you to know that I honestly believe this about YOU!!!
The One Thing I Believe About You Is – God Loves You, Has An Amazing Plan For Your Life And IS NOT FINISHED WITH YOU YET!
(OK, so that may be three things…but I put it in one sentence, so I’m counting it as one!)
God’s not through with you!
People may be through with you, heck, the church may have even told you they are through with you…
GOD’S NOT THROUGH WITH YOU!
If you still have air in your lungs, if your heart is still pushing blood through your body then God’s not done!!!
God wants greater things for your life than you could ever imagine! (See Ephesians 3:20 and Matthew 7:9-11)
AND, no matter what you have gone through HE IS ABLE to bless your life MORE from this point forward than you have EVER experienced! (Job 42:12)
DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT throw in the towel!
You are not too young to be used by God (look at Samuel in I Samuel 3!!)
You are not too old to be used by God (look at Noah and Moses!!!)
You have not been to sinful to be used by God (just look at the genealogy of Jesus in Matthew 1, whew, there are some pretty shady characters mentioned in that list…and yet God STILL used them!)
You ARE NOT USELESS! God created you ON PURPOSE, WITH A PURPOSE and FOR A PURPOSE (Ephesians 2:10!)
I believe this about you…so much so that THIS SUNDAY at NewSpring Church we will be continuing our Job series by diving into the subject, “Don’t Waste Your Life!” Too many times I see people throw away their lives because they believe that God does not care, does not have a plan for them and/or they have done too many bad things for their lives to EVER count for anything significant.
But God DOES have a plan…and IT IS the most amazing thing in our lives that we could ever experience (see how His will is described at the end of Romans 12:2!)
I can’t WAIT for this Sunday to talk about this a lot more!!!
God’s NOT THROUGH WITH YOU!!!
