You Qualify!

“God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.” 1 Corinthians 1:28-29

When you realize Who you’re dealing with, it will free you from a lot of hangups about being used by God! You tend to look at your weaknesses, your mistakes, and your inadequacies and conclude you don’t qualify in God’s eyes. God sees that same list of deficiencies as prime real estate for glorifying Himself. You sometimes forget that the God Who made something out of nothing loves to show off when you bring your imperfections to Him!

People who think they have it all together are like a dirty glass containing clean water: they deflect and distract from what’s most important. Because you are so aware how much you need God, He finds your life irresistible. You are a prime candidate for miracles, transformation, and heavenly advertisement of what God can do. Don’t hide your weakness, my friend, present it to God in humble surrender and watch what He does with it. His reputation for creating beauty from ashes will amaze you and those around you.

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
