DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH

1 Timothy 4:4&5.           “Everything God created is good, and to be received with thanks. Nothing is to be sneered at and thrown out. God’s Word and our prayers make every item in creation holy.”

I’m pretty sure everyone knows the scripture about the builder’s rejected stone. It so popular that the Bible states it at least 3 different times; Psalm 118:22, Matthew 21:42, Acts 4:11

“Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “ ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’?”   Matthew 21:42 NIV


People might sneer at your efforts, you might be dismissed no matter what you do or say, you might be your own worst critic and consider yourself worthless, but I don’t. God doesn’t

The Bible teaches us that NOTHING is useless, NOTHING deserves our derision, NOTHING should be cast away. There is good in EVERYTHING, a blessing that sometimes we can’t see. It is God’s word and our prayers that make a difference.

Sometimes you’ve got to hand your situation over to God and wait to see what He does with it. There is good in EVERYTHING and in God’s hands ANYTHING can become a marvelous cornerstone; even you.

Think About This 

Before you give on something, give it to God


Prayer 

Dear Lord, I do not see as You see and that often makes me give up on people, things and situations instead of giving them to You. I surrender all today and wait eagerly to the marvelous things You will do! In Jesus name I pray. Amen
