Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. (Jeremiah 1:5 KJV)
What is your testimony of life? Before we came out from our mothers’ wombs, God knew what He has planned for our lives. Even you were born with disability; it doesn’t mean that God would just ignore you. The mythological religion system said that having a disability means it’s a sign of God’s punishment for our sins. Sadly, some people still believe this myth as a teaching tool in schools, churches, and counseling services. But the Bible has many illustrations where God used people with disabilities to draw many hearts of people into Himself.
God has brought me out from orphan to show me a great purpose of my life. Some of you may know, I grew up in the orphanage in South Korea and came to United States in 1990 through adoption. I began to write inspiration messages in later of 90s and started the web ministry while I was in my vocational training. Even I have physical disability, it does not mean that God cannot use me in the mission field. Over ten years, several thousand people have ministered by MGJC Web Ministry (www.mgjcweb.org) because of support from God and my friends. I didn’t put my name as the title of this web ministry, because it’s not about me or people with disabilities, but it’s about God and His love for us. We cannot seek His blessing, but we’d start to seek His face. So He can pour His blessing upon us.
Prophet Jeremiah did not have a happy life. He went through many hates and sufferings during his life. But he had a great purpose for his life that God gave to him. We do not have to be fame of this world because our eternal awards are in Heaven. But we need to share our testimonies to the world, so people could receive FREE gift of salvation and accept Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior.
What is your testimony? Maybe you are going through some kind of life tragedy now, but God can use your tragedy for a great purpose of your life. You just need to trust in Him that He can walk with you through the tragedy. I Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” “For with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37).
