Even though I may have messed up in my life, can God still turn that around and make use of that in his plan?

Hi @SeanO

Sorry if this is a late response, but I need to ask the following personal question: Even though I may have messed up in my life, can God still turn that around and make use of that in his plan?

@AlphaOmega Of course! We’ve all messed up - every one of us. When we accept Jesus we become new creations - completely new! - and God says in His Word that He has work prepared for all of those who have been created anew in Christ Jesus. We’ve all been broken - we’ve all sinned - but God makes us new, washes us clean, and uses us for His Kingdom.

Ephesians 2:10 - For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Titus 3:3-7 - At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
