From persecutor to preacher

Tuesday March 27th, Isaiah 43: 16 This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, 17 who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: 18 "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? God is way ahead of us. We tend to look on what has been. We judge others on that criteria. God looks ahead to what could be. Why else would some of the Old Testament “heroes” be chosen? From Abraham right on down to Jesus and on to Paul, most of them would not pass the mustard in today’s world. God sees us in a different light. If Paul, the persecutor of the church can go on to be it’s greatest preacher, what do you think God has in store for you if you give it half a chance?
