Can God use you?

It is the will & plan of God to use everyone of us…

Does God wait until we are perfect?

Do you feel inadequate?  Do you feel too old? Do you feel too young? Do you have a background that is less than perfect?

You are in good company… Join the crowd…

Noah was a drunk

Abraham was too old

Isaac was a day dreamer

Jacob was a lier

Joseph was abused

Moses stuttered

Gideon was afraid

Samson had long hair & was a womanizer

Rehab was a prostitute

Jeremiah & Timothy were too young

David had an affair & 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

The samaritan women was divorced a number of times

Paul was too religious

Timothy had an ulcer

We are not adequate in ourselves. Our inadequacies causes us to trust God. Don’t major on your weaknesses. We have the strength of God…

I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me…through Chris….My God shall supply all of my needs according to His riches in Glory in Christ Jesus…

God gives gifts & talents to everyone. Use them all to the Glory of God….Be available, willing, & live a surrendered life…

We can get very discouraged if we are trying to live up to what others have planned for us or if we are trying to be who they think we should be. Is someone not happy with who you are? That can really be discouraging. BUT I say that God knows who you are and The Holy Spirit will work in your heart to change you into what God wants you to be. (conformed to the image of his Son) Sometimes what others want you to be is the opposite of what God is doing in you and wants to do through you. Don’t let others sidetrack you. 

Sometimes the way others want you to be is really what they want themselves to be. It may be that God is working to change them and they put that on you. They don’t want to change, they want others to change. 

Continue to look to God for things He wants to change in you. Don’t listen to others if it does not line up to the word and with what God has already been dealing with you on. Sometimes God does use others to work things in you. Sometimes He uses others to show you some character flaw that is in you. Don’t push that aside, surrender to the will of God in your live.

 

 

Romans 8:28-29

King James Version (KJV)

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Colossians 3:10

English Standard Version (ESV)

10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.

Some people & things God allows to buffet us…

 

2 Corinthians 12:7

King James Version (KJV)

And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
