You Can Be Anything

You Can Be Anything

God doesn’t go very much for bigness after the manner of this world. In fact, He specializes in using people who seem most likely not to succeed; yet by the miraculous power and grace of God they become shining lights to others. God only makes great people out of little people, to show His greatness.1

Dare to trust Him in spite of yourself, and give Him all the credit when He does the miracle—what you couldn’t do. If you can believe in God, everything is possible, because He makes everything out of nothing. We’re all nothing and can do nothing good of ourselves.2 God is like the circle around the nothing that makes it something. With God all around you, even your nothing can be something. In fact, you can be almost anything!
