Men of Like Passion: Why God Uses Losers Like Me
God uses people with problems. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief as you discover that God still wants to use you to be a blessing to the world. He still wants you to experience the best in this life and He still wants to be intimately connected.
This incredible series allows you to be real about your struggles, but still trust God for the miraculous. You can be comfortable being you as you walk through the real issues of life!
Everyone has the same problems, but not everyone has the same religious conditioning! It isn’t really our failures that destroy us; it’s our reaction to them. Some people fail and simply get up. They trust God’s faithfulness to His Word even when they struggle with their own faithfulness. Others encounter failure with deep condemnation and their response to condemnation is to condemn and disqualify themselves.
Amazingly, God made it a point to include the failure of all the great people of faith. He didn’t cover over any of their shortcomings. He wanted us to know that even in the midst of our struggles God is still God, He is still good, and His promises are still sure.
James 5:16-18 says …Pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain… And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit. God wants us to know that our inconsistencies do not void His promises.
In these encouraging, faith-building messages you will discover:
- God never runs out of mercy for you
- You have more in common with the fathers of faith than you realized
- God wants you as a friend more than He wants your attempts at perfection
- Your failures don’t have to nullify your faith
- People of faith are more about relationship than formulas
- God will still answer your prayers even when your life isn’t worthy
Take a fresh look at Enoch, Noah, Abraham, David, Paul, Peter, and Judas. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief as you discover that God still wants to use you to be a blessing to the world. He still wants you to experience the best in this life and He still wants to be intimately connected to you. God uses people with problems. As someone said, “God does not call the perfected, He perfects the called!”
Every believer needs to hear these messages and overcome the religious programming that causes you to disqualify yourself each time you fail!
