A Willing Heart
If you will handle adversity in the right way, God has promised that He will turn your challenges into stepping-stones for promotion. God wants to do new and unusual things in our lives. He’s looking for people who will trust Him with their whole hearts. He’s looking for people who won’t limit Him with their small-minded thinking.You may say, “Thế, I’m just an ordinary person. How could God ever use me? What could I ever do?”
Friend, God uses ordinary people like you and me to do extraordinary things. God is not looking for great power. He’s not looking for great education. God is simply looking for a willing heart. God is not looking for ability; He’s looking for availability. Just give God what you have. If you’ll give God the little that you do have, He’ll take that and multiply it and increase it. And He’ll make more out of your life than you’ve ever dreamed possible. God’s plan for your life is so much bigger and so much greater than you can imagine.
I’m convinced that one day we will look back at what we considered to be the worst thing that could happen to us, and we’ll realize that God used even that time of adversity to refine us, mold us, shape us, and prepare us for good things to come. Interesting, isn’t it? Adversity often pushes us into our divine destiny.
And sometimes we need a push! Had God not pushed you or me out of our comfort zone, you and I would probably still be at the same position or level of 10, 20 years ago! God wants us to constantly growing, and sometimes He’ll use a little adversity or some tension to get us moving forward. He will allow pressure to push you, to stretch you, to get you out of your comfort zone. He knows just how much you can take, and in your times of distress, keep in mind, God is enlarging you. The struggle is giving you strength. Furthermore, God knows the gifts and talents that He has placed within each one of us. He knows what you are capable of, and He’s going to do everything necessary to get you into your divine destiny. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish when God puts a little pressure on and you get out of that safe zone and step over into the faith zone.
