He Can Use Anyone

Helen Keller, who is a classic example of handling life’s handicaps, said, “I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I have found myself, my work, and my God.” Some people with handicaps drown themselves in self-pity, and thus limit their usefulness and service to mankind and to God. The Apostle Paul knew the pangs of suffering. He used his infirmity rather than allowing his infirmity to use him, and he used it for the glory of God. He seized everything, even death, to glorify his Lord. No matter which way fate turned, he was one jump ahead of it, and using it to magnify his Savior.

“Broken Body, Grateful Heart”: Listen to the powerful story of woman who’s been disabled most of her life.

Prayer for the day

Even my handicaps can be used by You, Lord Jesus. Like the Apostle Paul, let me rise above them for Your glory.

    We face hardships and trials in our everyday lives but how can we overcome all these? The answer is prayer. We have to trust in the Lord above and thank him for everything he has given to us.

    There are many circumstances and tragedies in life that we do not understand. They don’t make sense to our finite human mind. This is where faith and trust kick in. We either accept that God is in charge and always knows what’s best or not. It’s entirely up to you.

    I didn’t understand why in the beginning of my physical problems why the Lord let it happen but as time has gone by I can see how the Lord let my physical problems help others who have the same problem so they don’t give up. Thank you Jesus Christ.
