“Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding. Remember the Lord in all you do, and He will give you success.” ~ Proverbs 3:5–6
If you think God can’t move in your life because of the mistakes you’ve made or the situation you’re currently in, I’ve got great news for you:
God is not limited by our mistakes!
God is not limited by our burdens!
Don’t believe me? The stories of hundreds of people in the Bible could tell you otherwise.
Abraham didn’t understand how God could give him a son after 99 years.
Moses didn’t understand how God could use him after he committed murder.
Joseph didn’t understand how God could use him after his brothers sold him into slavery.
Job didn’t understand how God could bless him after he had lost everything.
Jonah didn’t understand how God could save him after he ran away.
Peter didn’t understand how God could use him after he rejected Christ.
These are just a few among many other examples. These men wrestled against adverse circumstances and the consequences of their own poor choices—none of which were too big or too bad for God to overcome.
We don’t have to understand how God will change our situations.
We don’t have to know all of the answers.
All we need to know is that God is not limited and that He wants to move on your behalf.
It doesn’t matter the amount of money we have,
or the amount of knowledge we have learned.
It doesn’t matter how many mistakes we’ve made,
or how many good deeds we’ve done.
God’s love, grace, and mercy do not depend on our performance!
God’s love, grace, and mercy are only based on what Christ did at the cross!
If you are in a tough situation today or burdened by past mistakes, turn to God.
Trust Him with your struggles, and don’t worry about how He’s going to take them away from you.
There are no limitations to the ways God can move in your life.
God is faithful, and He will never fail you!
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
—Romans 8:28, esv
