Everyone is so quick to make excuses for why they don’t follow God…
“You don’t know what my life is like right now”
“But you don’t know my past”
“I’m too old to make a difference”
“I’m too educated to get involved in anything religious”
But the Bible says…
“The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
Or in other words, God doesn’t see YOU the way that YOU see YOU.
You might think that you are not good enough or may not think that you have the energy to investigate what Jesus said… or you just might be scared that God just might answer those prayers that you want to pray…
but here is the news…
YOU NEED TO GET OVER YOURSELF!
God… the creator of the Universe has plans for you… he has given you talents and dreams, and on top of all that, he can see the WHOLE picture.
Us… can only live in the moment… can only see what is around us… can’t change outside influences.
Who would you back??
If it’s God then why don’t you get over yourself and get on your knees and give your life over to the ONLY one who can truly make a REAL difference in your life.
But… My past…
Look at Paul… a person who got enjoyment from hunting down Christians and in at least one case he was there as they were killed.
YET… in ONE encounter with God he was changed.
God not only used this man who was filled with hatred towards Christians but used him to spread the Gospel to the known world at that time… But got him to also write over half of the new testament.
David… a simple shepherd boy… uneducated… became King of a nation
Noah… a farmer… became a builder and saved mankind.
(add your name here)… a (add profession here)… after giving their life over to God… was able to ___________________ through the power of God.
GET OVER YOURSELF… and give it over to the ONLY one who can make the changes your life needs.
