Transformed Lives

“God is More Than Adequate!”

As I speak with young people from various parts of Melbourne, I find lots of heartache, loneliness, insecurity, broken relationships, and feelings of inadequacy -- symptoms all too common in today's troubled society. What can I possibly say to them who also experiences these symptoms in my life. Just this: God is more than adequate for whatever He asks us to do! I find that today's young men and women -- as in every generation -- relate enthusiastically to someone who has 'been there!' and 'done that!' All the more when they understand that we, too, have limitations.

My life had been transformed by the Lord. When I was at my dark ages, chaos was everywhere and my heart was shattered. It was only then that I realized, when I asked God to use me as His instrument, all things that occurred, no matter how bad they turned out to be, were all permissible under His will. In the Old Testiment in the Bible, Jeremiah 10:13 declares : “I know, Oh LORD, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps”--- I am thankful that my Lord Jesus Christ is directing my steps as I remain in HIM.

We are more relatable through our weaknesses and struggles than through all our victories.

By admitting we haven't got it all together, we reveal God's grace in a real and tangible way.
