“I have called you back from the ends of the earth, saying, ‘You are my servant.’ For I have chosen you and will not throw you away.”
Isaiah 41:9 NLT
It’s hard for me to throw stuff away. Growing up it was too hard to come by stuff so as an older man I like to figure out a way to bless somebody with what I no longer use or find another use for it. I will not throw it away.
I thank God that he decided a long time ago not to throw us away. Many people would’ve given up on us because we were damaged in some way but not God. God saw that there was still some good left in us. He decided to repurpose us.
1. God has called us back from the ends of the earth. This means at some point we were rebellious and strayed away from God. We walked away from him, not he from us. God loves us so much that he called us back. He didn’t call us back because we were so good but because he loved us so much!
2. You are God’s chosen servant. There is purpose on your life. There is something you have been chosen to do that nobody else can do. You’re still alive because you’ve been chosen to do something for God. Do you know what it is?
3. God said that he will not throw you away! Because other people gave up on you or walked away you have lost some self worth. But what you don’t realize is that your value just went up. One man’s trash is God’s treasure! You’re just a jewel that God has found!
It’s time for you to walk into your purpose! God has too much for you to do for you to stay down. You are precious to God and he will never throw you away!!
Than you for repurposing my life. Thank you for not thinking I was too old or too messed up. You fixed me up and now I’m ready to run on and see what the end is going to be. Father, thank you for sending Jesus to make me over.
In Jesus’ name,
