History Is No Problem

Judges 11:1 – Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty man of valor, and he was the son of a prostitute: and Gilead became the father of Jephthah.

Jephthah was a man with a label – he was the son of a prostitute.  As a result, his brothers drove him away from the family.  Yet, the gift of God was upon him, and in their time of need, the family returned to him – begging him to lead them in battle against the Ammonites who were troubling them. 

God is no respecter of human classes and social etiquette.  He will use who He wants – and more times than not, He turns to the outcast and works through them. 

God used this man who was an embarrassment and rejected by his family – to help set them free. 

Your past is not an indication of your future.  The trouble that lies behind only serves to help create a greater testimony for God when He moves through your life!
