No Limitations

No Limitations

He fought against the Lord
persecuting His elect,
yet few could ever imagine
this man God would select!

According to our thinking
he should have been restrained,

to serve a stiff sentence, and
for a lengthy time constrained.

He was strongly dedicated
to fulfill God's mission,
feared by the majority
in a powerful position.

We would have written him off
as a ruthless man,
but our Heavenly Father
had a different plan.

He was amazingly converted
despite his reputation,
proof that Almighty God
has no limitations!

The rest of course is history,
as the bible tells it all;
I'm speaking of the man
known as the Apostle Paul.

What God did back then
He still can do today,
create a lasting legacy
from a misguided man of clay!

We are often too quick to write someone off as "beyond hope", but when reading about Paul in the book of Acts, we are reminded that God sees the intents of the heart, something we don't have access to!   What a remarkable conversion it was!  Praise the Lord...
