“Just because you’ve made a mistake or failed in some way doesn’t cancel God’s plan. God never disqualifies you. He never says, “Go sit on the sidelines.” Instead, He wants to shine His glory through you!” Victoria Osteen
This is so true! Just look at the life and times of King David, God’s anointed king, a man after God’s own heart:
‘But then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul, son of Kish, out of the tribe of Benjamin. After Saul had ruled forty years, God removed him from office and put King David in his place, with this commendation: ‘I’ve searched the land and found this David, son of Jesse. He’s a man whose heart beats to my heart, a man who will do what I tell him.’
Acts 13:22 Message Translation
He missed it many times, yet God used him mightily to His glory and so all the other men and women in the Bible… many, in our point of view, failures, outcasts, co-dependent, cowards – yet God used their lives to minister to others, to deliver His people from bondage and bring glory to His name and thus God revealed His character time after time. A loving and merciful GOD, full of compassion (Psalm 86:15) and ready to forgive and bless.
God is sovereign. His plan SHALL be established. Nothing takes Him by surprise and nothing or no one scares Him. His love for you and me is so awesome, words cannot describe it…it has to be experienced!
Stay blessed and loved, in Christ
