Who God Uses: You are Useful to God!

07 Oct

In looking at blogs that I follow, I came across something that I find very interesting.  It is something I think we all need to hear and realize.  That being said, this is what I found.  You cna find the post here that I took it from.

Who God Uses

The next time you feel like God can’t use you, just remember . . . .

-Noah was a drunk

-Abraham was too old

-Sarah was past her child-bearing years

-Isaac was a daydreamer

-Jacob was a liar

-Leah was ugly

-Joseph was arrogant and then…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

-John the Baptist ate bugs

-Peter denied Christ

-The disciples fell asleep while praying

-Martha worried about everything

-The Samaritan woman was divorced, and, more than once

-Mary Magdalene was a prostitute

-Zaccheus was too small

-Paul was too religious

-Lazarus was dead!

No more excuses now.  God can use you to your full potential.  Besides, you aren’t the message, you are just the messenger.

God wants to use each and everyone of us, no matter what.  We all go through things in our lives and we all have things that we are ashamed of.  The thing is, we can not let that hold us back for seeking God, asking for forgivenss, and allowing Him to work through us in whatever way He deems right for us.  We have so much potential, you have so much potential.  Don’t let it stay hidden, let it out.

    This is awesome…so true…and so inspiring…nothing we do could ever stop God from using us so long as we are open to his love!
