DAILY, you think God can't use you?

Every week I hear the reasons why it's difficult for people to serve the Lord...

"Life is hard", "I'm going thru something", "I don't know the Bible very well", "I'm too busy",etc

We need to understand that when God asks us to do something, He isn't asking for an updated resume or a list of references. He's just asking for a willing heart.

God doesn't save those who are already perfect, that's why He gives us grace. But He does apply Grace to all of us imperfect people so that we can be equipped. Some of the greatest Pillars of the Scripture were far from perfect:

Isaac was a day dreamer, Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk. Elisha was suicidal, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Martha worried, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Rehab was a prostitute, Samson liked a prostitute. Moses stuttered, Zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old and Lazarus was dead.

In today's Scripture reading we see where Moses killed a man...

(Acts 7:24) "Seeing one of them wronged, he defended the oppressed man and avenged him by striking down (killing) the Egyptian."

But yet, Moses became a great man for God.

God uses those who are willing to be used and He equips those Whom He calls. It's never about us in the first place; so do you still think God can't use you?


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Kings 6:24-8:15, Acts 7:17-36, Psalm 102:1-7
