Rahab was a prostitute, and they said Jeremiah and Timothy were too young. David had an affair and murdered, and Jonah ran from God. Job was bankrupt and Peter denied Christ. Martha was a worrier, and Lazarus was dead. God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called. try living by faith in victory; try saying yes to Him and no to insecurities. farewell your fears and say hello to living! tag someone you know who may need this encouragement today.Instagram: @_jacintanest // @littlekinta

God doesn’t look past you and consider you unworthy — as His best for you, often lies in His preparation, and your willingness to wait. His best for you is found in seeing you turn up for practice, turn up for training, turn up in your uniform ready to play, and humbly taking the bench when He calls someone else equipped and gifted to the base you were sure you’d be given. and herein lies your decision on whether you will push through to a life of second bests, or you will wait it out for that which He has promised. you can jump team, you can swap uniforms and you can dive head first into a new church, a new ministry or a new city — and serve there immediately. or you can remain faithful, committed and humble in your waiting. you can choose patience and blessing, over self righteousness and self-assurance. His best is not always quick or easily attainable. His best is not always seemingly glamorous, or plotted out and written down as we may have imagined it. His best is not “fill this spot” or “warm this seat”. but His best is “this spot was made perfectly for you.” His best is “I prepared this seat, for such a time as this for you!” He is personal and timely; so live for a seasonal position on His team.Instagram: @_jacintanest // @littlekinta

You can laugh at Christianity. You can mock and ridicule it. But it works. If you trust Christ, start watching your attitudes and actions—Jesus Christ is in the business of changing lives. Christianity is not something to be shoved down your throat or forced upon you. You have your life to live and I have mine. All I can do is tell you what I have learned and experienced. After that, what you do with Christ is your decision.
