Philippians 1:6. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.
God isn’t finished with you yet! He is still working and He will continue to work in and through you until you meet Jesus! God’s desire for you is for you to be all He created you to be and He created you for a purpose! You aren’t here to just sit and watch the paint dry! Your past doesn’t matter if you have asked for forgiveness it is under the blood (some sins have to be taken care of horizontally too if you have done something that affects others, but take care of it and move forward!), where you are doesn’t matter, you just need to allow God to take you where He is trying to lead you! Let go of your agenda and your excuses and follow Him!
God always has a way of taking all you have been through and using it to bring you to another level. He can take all that has seemed wrong and use it for good if you allow Him to!
He hasn’t given up on you, so you need to hold on to that and press forward. Take a look at Paul in the Bible! He wrote several of the books in the New Testament but take a look at who he was before that! He was out persecuting and killing Christians, he was even there when they stoned Stephen! You could almost compare Him to someone today leading crusades against Christians and then getting saved and having that much of a turnaround in their life! He had quite the past and God used Him mightily and in fact, is still using his testimony and writings to affect the lives of people today!
God wants to use you and He wants to see you be all you can be for Him! He loves you and wants His best for you! Let go of your agenda and seek Him and His agenda for your life! The best is yet to come but you have to be willing to allow Him to lead you there!
