918th -- Too Bad To Change?


With the many trials and tribulations we as human beings go through in 
daily life, it is easy to want to give up on ourselves as well as on 
others. What we must understand is that no matter how beat down we may 
sometimes get, a new day is always dawning. When today has gotten the 
best of us, we always have tomorrow to try again. We should never get so
down on ourselves for our past mistakes and shortfalls that we believe the
lie that a new beginning is impossible for us. We must remember that God
never gives up on His creation. His love for us reaches from everlasting
to everlasting and when we simply call upon Him asking for help, Divine 
intervention takes place and a strength that we have never known before 
lifts us up and places our feet on solid ground. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

The area in which we have failed does not matter. If we simply let go of
the past and believe for a new beginning, great things can begin to happen
in our life. We simply must believe in ourselves again and know that 
God's love for us is greater than our condemnation for ourselves. Be 
encouraged to believe that God loves you and wishes for you to begin 
again. No matter your shortfalls or mistakes, if you give it all to the 
Lord, He can take your mess and turn it into a miracle. You just have to
trust Him to do it. (Psalm 84:11-12) (Psalm 28:6-8)

I hope this message inspires your heart to see that no person is beyond 
redemption. We can all begin again if we simply trust the Lord and believe
in ourselves as He believes in us.


They’re one of the worst teams in professional sports. They play their 
games in a half-filled arena and are rumored to be struggling just to pay
their players. Not only do they lose games, they lose money as well: $4 
million just last year. Times are so tough that a group of area merchants
banded together and held a telethon just to keep the team alive. Observers
say the team is worth less than any other team in its league. What possible
future could a basement-dwelling bunch like this have? After all, don’t 
you eventually just get too bad to change?

Actually no. The year was 1992, and the team was, in fact, the Indiana 
Pacers. One year later, the Pacers were almost sold to a group of Canadian
investors (how does “Toronto Pacers” sound?) before beginning a steady 
turnaround which led to several divisional championships and an appearance
in the NBA finals. Today, the Pacers are worth more than four times their
value of ten years ago and are a recognized powerhouse in the NBA. Quite a

A house can reach the point of no return, a state of disrepair so advanced
that it is actually less expensive to tear it down and start over. A car 
can become so rust-eaten and unsafe that repairing it actually costs more
than buying a new one. A lawn can become so weed-infested that the most 
logical solution is to spray herbicide on everything, killing both weeds 
and grass, and start over next spring. Most things in this life can become
so run-down that repairing them is actually more expensive and more 
time-consuming than just throwing them away and buying a new one. Most 

But not human beings. When you and I give up on people, God is still 
willing to give them another chance. When we write people off as 
“unchangeable,” God says “No problem, I've handled worse before.” When we
give up on ourselves, concluding that we are too bad to ever change, God 
says “Wait a minute. I made you and I still see what you can become. You 
can’t change yourself, but I can change you if you will let me.”

God is in the people-changing business. He’s never met one yet that he 
couldn't fix.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

2 Corinthians 4:8-11 “We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;
we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast
down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the
Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the
life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”

Deuteronomy 4:30-31 “When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are
come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, 
and shalt be obedient unto His voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful 
God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the 
covenant of thy fathers which He sware unto them.”

Psalm 28:6-8 “Blessed be the LORD, because He hath heard the voice of my 
supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my 
song will I praise Him. The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving 
strength of His anointed.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth
us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in
any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
