Some of God’s toughest soldiers are those who have been raped, molested, beaten, abused, shot, imprisoned, stomped, ostracized, abandoned, forsaken, drugged, burned, and rejected. Who else would He trust to put on the front line? When you have been through the storms and the rain of life, what else do you have to lose? Moses was floating up the river, raised as an orphan, and suffered an identity crisis. Samuel was raised an orphan. David was rejected by his family, so was Joseph.
God knows who can endure the rugged terrain of life so don’t count these folk out. When the Lord gets through with them, you won’t be able to touch them.
