RENEWAL Devotional: A Person God Can Use
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for RENEWAL at Brookhaven Hospital
You are challenged in life every day and yet, you have somehow overcome. You are a person God can use. There is something in your life that you can share with someone who has struggled the same way you have. In this way, you can be a witness for God. Whether it is fear, injustice, relationship problems, forgiveness, low self-esteem, marriage- you can help someone overcome.
You don’t have to have a pulpit or a big ministry to help someone who just wants to know that someone cares about them.
Peter denied Jesus three times [Matthew 26], and yet, Christ forgave him. Peter had the same weakness as we do in this century. Peter also learned from his mistakes as we do, and allowed his weakness to become his strength. As Peter overcame situations, it was not by his own strength. He was only able to overcome through the strength that is in Christ Jesus. [Philippians 4:13]
Read Bible verses about strength and how we must be strong in our walk with God, Jesus Christ, and our Christian faith.
Be encouraged today, that you can be used by God right where you are! Just do it!
