The next time you feel like GOD can’t use you, just remember…
Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Samson had long hair and was a womanizer
Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
Elijah was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt
Peter denied Christ
The Disciples fell asleep while praying
Martha worried about everything
Mary Magdalene was demon-possessed
The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once
Zaccheaus was too short
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer, and
Lazarus was dead!
Therefore, no more excuses!
God can use you to your full potential if only you yield to Him. Besides, you are not the message, you are just the messenger. So, don’t disqualify yourself with your obsession with your inadequacies or insult God by questioning or rationalising His sense of judgement.
God doesn’t call the qualified; but, those He calls, He qualifies.
Meditation: For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are. – 1 Corinthians 1:26-28
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
