God Wants to Use Me?

By Betty Robison Published on August 18, 2015

BETTY ROBISON — “Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.” (2 Corinthians 1:4)

When the Lord truly delivered me from my fear and insecurity, James began sharing at our Bible Conferences what God had done in my life.

It wasn’t long before I received my first invitation to speak to a group of women. In the past, I would have turned down the opportunity right away, but suddenly, I had a strong desire to share what God had done in my life. I was excited to tell others they could experience the freedom I had found.

During that time, I learned God wants to help us overcome our struggles so He can use us to help others find His freedom and comfort, too. God likes to take our mess and make it our ministry.

God wants you to be more than a conqueror. And He wants you to be a carrier of His power and love in all you do.

Further Study: 2 Corinthians 12:9; Ephesians 2:10; James 1:2-4

Take action: Declare today: Jesus, I receive Your freedom in my life. I receive Your grace and mercy. Fear has no place here. You are my security and my confidence. Your Word is life to my body, soul and spirit.
