Bible Study About Esther

I am reading an amazing devotional book for here The woman that I am reading about this week is Esther.It points out how God uses the ordinary to do the extraordinary. He uses the most unlikely people to fulfill His purposes. He doesn't need us to be perfect or talented or any number of things; He only wants us to be willing. It encourages me so much to be reminded that God can use me right where I am, just like I am. I don't have to go through some special training for my life to matter for God. Here is one of the verses the book points out.

2 Corinthians 8:12
"For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have."

It's comforting to think that where I am in my life and relationships today is exactly where God wants to and can use me. He can use you too.

That was so encouraging to me, I sometimes forget that in my weaknesses HE is strong.
