In an environment that regularly rejects and disqualifies people, we can be thankful for God’s unconditional love and acceptance. Despite our flaws and past mistakes, He is always ready to give us another chance. Rahab, a prostitute, was an example of this; despite her past, God saved her from destruction and used her mightily. We can be encouraged by this; we all have a past, but it does not disqualify us in God’s eyes. Our enemy wants to shame and condemn us because of what we have done; however, God is always willing to use us when we trust Him. No matter who we are or what our present circumstances are, having faith in Him allows Him to work through us, redefine us, and elevate us to new levels. When the world eliminates us and counts us out, God never will.
