Can God use me, in spite of all my mistakes? I know that I have done a lot of things over the years, that not always have been wise to do. But I have always had a heart to serve God. The problem for me have been that there were nobody that guided me, or nobody I could ask ALL the questions that came to my mind.
The Holy Spirit has thought me ONE important thing!
May be God has allowed me to do all this mistakes, so I could be able to help others, and teach others, or there was something in my character that God wanted to change. Whatever the reason, The Holy Spirit has thought me ONE important thing. This ONE thing is what have kept me close to God over all this years, whatever situation I have got my self in to.
And many times, a long time after the problems ended, I have discovered blessings that God has given me because of the problems and mistakes. But you know, it has not been easy to see the blessings, when I have been in the middle of it all.
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Because we can easy get ourself in to negative situations when we TRY to serve God, without understanding how The Holy Spirit works in our life. And when we do make mistakes, God is always there to help us out of the situation again, even though it may take some time.
You will find This ONE thing in... (Yes please read on, because this WILL help your ministry!)
For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, [then] have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
The Devil want to condemn you. But please listen to the Word of God! Do not listen to him. The Devil is a deciver and a robber. He ONLY want to rob you for your joy in The Lord, and ROB YOUR MINISTRY.
Why should you not feel condemn when you do a mistake? Because Jesus took all our sins on Him. I am in every situations cleansed in the blood of Jesus!
But what about my mistakes than?
The only way to understand this is to read what God, our Heavenly Father say about it in His word:
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
I don`t know how much this can help you, or if this apply to you at all, but please kindly ask God what He want with your life. God has a purpose and a ministry for you, so let Him lead you and open the doors for you, so you may serve Him.
If He will do it now, than I will praise God! If it is not the time for God to do it jet, Hallelujah and praise the Lord.
AS LONG AS WE DO THE WILL OF GOD,
... than I will praise His Holy Name. And wherever that may be, and in whatever situation that may be, than I will praise His Name.
So, don`t take any beating from the Devil! Raise up your head and look over/ to the mountains where your help is coming from. Psalms.
God bless you brother/ sister,
Please let me hear from you if this was any help for you.
Do you need help as a Christian, or in your ministry?
It is not easy to admit that you need help, specially if you are a man (women have easier to open up in most cases). But really, DO YOU NEED HELP?
