My Heart, His Words

Let the Words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your site, O Lord.

Never Worthy, Forever Loved

I can completely relate to the Centurion man who went to Jesus asking Him to heal his servant who was at home, paralyzed & “dreadfully tormented”.  When Jesus responded with, “I will come and heal him.”, the Centurion quickly responded saying, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.”

When it comes to my dream of writing, I find myself feeling unworthy.  My heart declares, “Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof” Friend, I don’t know about you, but my roof covers my fears, worries, doubts, imperfections, lack of faith & lack of belief.  I question, how could God use such imperfection? What do I have to offer anyone?

Then I read the next line in Scripture where the Centurion says, “But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.” He believed! He knew that although he was not worthy, Jesus was capable of simply speaking a word & healing his servant.  He chose to believe!

When the Centurion vocalized his belief in Jesus, the response he received from Jesus was beautiful: “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel…Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” (by the way, his servant was healed!)

Although I don’t feel worthy, I know this is what God is calling me to do, so I walk in obedience & I choose to believe that what He has started in me He will be faithful to complete. (Philippians 1:6)

Although I don’t feel worthy, it’s not about me, it’s about Him. It is in my weakness that He is strongest anyway, so I will never be worthy enough.

Although I am not worthy enough, I am LOVED enough! In my imperfection, He still loves me! {Imagine that!}

If God has the ability to speak the world into motion & to heal with just a touch, He can certainly use flawed & messy me!

No, I may not be worthy, but Jesus is & to Him be all the glory.

  4. Satin,
    So true — what we imagine are our weakest areas are where he shows us his strength! And how he chooses to use what he graciously gives us is so humbling and yet so amazing. Thank you for this post!
