Make The Mess In Your Life A Message

Make The Mess In Your Life A MessageGreetings my dear friends and how in the world are you? I was thinking about the importance of taking the mess of our life and making it a message for Jesus Christ. He can only be glorified through those who are willing to expose their weakness in exchange for His strength and honor. A concept forbidden by those with self-sufficiency and self-dependency and self-deception as their main support system.

Welcome to God’s Workmanship. I’m Miriam Miller, and would like to speak to you onĀ Make the Mess in Your Life a Message.

How does this fit into the Christian realm of one’s life? Wouldn’t you think that once we become a Christian, that we would understand that our sufficiency comes through Jesus Christ and that our allegiance and dependency is to be totally on God our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yet, we find ourselves much like King David in II Samuel 12:1-14, covering our sin in hopes that the problems around us that we created, or help create, will go away.

Unfortunately, if we do not take the mess in our lives and make it a message for Jesus Christ, we use it for self-gratification. The consequences can be very severe but the love of God covers a multitude of sin, I Peter 4:8. God gives us each an opportunity to use the mess in our lives to be a blessing to those around us and to bring glory and honor to God. The question is, well we use what we have done to condemn others, or ourselves or be a blessing by helping others in their time of need.

King David of course had an opportunity to use the mess in his life to be a message for his children. In II Samuel 13-18:19-33, it tells us how one man’s sin and family secrets can affect and destroy the lives of many. King David’s response to what took place in his firstborn son Amnon, his daughter Tamar, and his son Absalom destroyed any positive message that God could have used to save the lives of many.

We must never forget what I Peter 5:8 says, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” This may come through the form of shame, guilt, blame or anything else that may cause us to conform to “Stinken Thinken,”, “Foolish Feelings” and eventually as in David’s case and his children “Awful Actions.”

Satan desires to paralyze you, in hopes that you will become ineffective and useless for God. Always remember my beloved, “You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (I John 4:5)

With that in mind, we can accomplish acts of righteousness by, “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to God.” (II Corinthians 10:5)

King David failed to do that. God had forgiven him and blessed him in spite of what he had done with Bathsheba, and Uriah, Bathsheba’s husband. II Samuel 13-14 says, “Then David said to Nathan, ‘I have sinned against the Lord.’ Nathan replied, ‘The Lord has taken away your sin. You are not going to die. But because by doing this you have made the enemies of the Lord show utter contempt, the son born of you will die.” David still had consequences to face, but was cleansed from the penalty of his sin, and the separation of God Almighty.

My question to you is, how are you dealing with the mess in your life and are you making it a message for Jesus Christ. Don’t wait any longer to share with those you love, or with those you are involved with, of how God forgave you and He also forgives them. In closing my beloved, you Have a Message and Be One.
