Jephtah & his status

Today, the message is about Jephtah from the book of Judges. Sister Guat Lan preached it. One points that stands out about Jephtah is this.

Jephtah was an illegitimate child but that does not stop him from becoming a great warrior. Sometimes we let our circumstances to dictate our actions. Being an illegitimate child could cause us to feel inferior or have low self-esteem. That should be the way. There are many things that could not be changed and as such we should accept it. As a result of not being affected by his status, Jephtah eventually led the Israelites to victory against the Moabites and Amorites.

God can use us no matter what our status are in society. Do you feel low self-esteem? Take heart in knowing that God still loves you and have wonderful plans for you.
