Acts, Paul

God Wants Our Hearts

God can select the most unlikely people to do his good works. I am always fascinated by Saul (Paul) in the bible. Saul was a Pharisee. A Pharisee is defined as a member of an ancient Jewish sect, distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law. Saul was persecuting Christians. Why? It seems like he was following the letter of the law so strictly that he felt compelled to persecute the followers of Jesus. 

God had other plans for Saul. 

God selected Saul to use as a vessel to spread Christianity to Gentiles, kings and all children of Israel.

But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
—Acts 9:15-16 NKJV

Don’t even think for one minute that God can’t use you. No matter what you have done, God forgives. God can take the worst situation, and turn it around, and use it for his good works. If you make a mistake, God can fix it. You don’t need to stay up at night, worrying if you said the wrong thing. Pray to God and believe in his power. God will cover you. When you believe in God, you will be blessed. God will protect you. God just wants our hearts.
