Give God your heart, not your excuses

Give God your heart, not your excuses. God is not limited by your current situation or circumstance. God is not limited by your past. God is not limited by your race. God is not limited by the fact that you only have a high school education. God is not limited by your income, or lack there of. God is not limited by your background. God is not limited by your family history. God is not limited by your age. All of that is irrelevant in God’s eyes. God can still use you, and HeĀ wants to use you despite how things look right now in your life. Take David for example. David was a shepherd boy, the youngest of all his brothers, yet God still used him to conquer nations. Take Paul for example. This is a man who used to persecute the church, and kill Christians, yet down the line God still used him to write 13 of the 27 books in the New Testament. I can use my own life for an example. Just a couple years ago I was just a guy with criminal record, a 2.0 GPA in college who had no drive, no direction, and absolutely no clue what I wanted to do with my life. But now God is using me on this blog and on a Christian podcast to do His work. Myself, David, and Paul had a couple things in common. We were all people God brought out of lowly places, people who the world frowned upon. We were people who had situations and circumstances that looked like we were bound for failure, people who didn’t look like they would amount to anything. But God is able, because He is not limited by our situations or circumstances. Man judges based off of outward looks, but God looks at the heart. God does not care about what is on the outside, or the situation you are in. God does not care about race. God does not care about how much money you make. God does not care about how educated you are. God’s main concern is where your heart lies, that’s what He looks at and that’s what He cares about. Give God your heart, not your excuses. Again God is not limited by your current situation, or by your past or by anything else. God can still use you. He wants to use you, but you must do your part right where you are in life. All God needs to use you, is to have your heart fully submitted to Him, to do His will. You can do that right now… It does not matter if you are white or black. It does not matter if you are rich or poor. It does not matter if you are the CEO of the company or if you are the janitor at the company. It does not matter if you are in between jobs. It does not matter if you have a 1.8 GPA or a 4.0 GPA. None of that stuff matters. None of that has anything to do with giving God your heart so that He can use you to become the person that He has called you to be. God has a divine purpose for your life. He has great plans for your life and for your future, plans that are not limited by where you are currently at in life. Don’t focus on your issues, don’t focus our problems. Don’t focus on your situation. Just focus on God. Give Christ your heart, so you can become all that He has called you to be. God is not limited by anything. The world may tell you that where you are in life is where you will always be. Do not listen to the world, listen to God. And trust and know that He has a unique purpose and calling on your life. You tap into that purpose by giving your life over to Him.
