God's Not Done with You
Updated: Dec 10, 2020
Here’s the thing: Satan is the king of lies. He will take any seed of doubt you have and twist it into a full on lie, leaving you believing that “you’re not beautiful”, “no one loves you”, “God has forgotten about you”, or “you should be ashamed of that thing you did”. These are all lies that sneak their way into our minds and stake their territory, determined to stay. But as believers we have a weapon to fight back against the lies: the Word of God. The Bible is the absolute Truth that God has given us to combat all the lies the world throws at us. And the Bible tells us that God is not done with us; He is still working. We are not a lost cause.
God has a divine purpose for your life and He created you exactly as you are. You are His masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10). God doesn't see all the ways you don't measure up or all the sin that surrounds your past. He sees you as you are: His child, whom He loves unconditionally. There is nothing you can do to lose that love.
If you feel like you are struggling, it's okay because you are human and God knows that. He doesn't expect you to have it all figured out. In fact, the Bible tells us that His power is made perfect in our weaknesses (2 Corinthians 12:9). When we are too afraid to step out of our comfort zone, He gives us confidence. When we feel defeated, He gives us strength to get back up. When we feel insecure, He gently reminds us that we are worthy.
God is never done with us. He is constantly working on us, molding us, and growing us to be more like Him. God still moves in seasons of drought. It may be hard to see or feel, but trust me, He is doing something! We do not serve an idle God but sometimes we do have to be intentional in looking for the ways He is moving in our lives. If you are feeling lonely, is He teaching you to be satisfied with Him alone? Or has He brought a new friend into your life that you didn't know before? When you are waiting for something, is He teaching you to be content? In life there will be mundane seasons, but God will continue to work through those. I hate to break it to you but we will never be done growing. There will always be something for us to work on or improve upon. God loves us too much to leave us in the same spot.
I challenge you to identify your weaknesses in life right now and ask God to work through those; to reveal Himself to you in new ways because of those weaknesses. One of the joys of being a Christian is to know that even the worst parts of our stories are something that God can use for His glory. He never stops working, friend. He will take the mess and make it beautiful, like a potter who makes beauty from clay.
