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

Lazarus died

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…

Only Believe…

Now a days our minds are so full of so many things that we are not sure what to believe. Listening to the news, watching TV, hearing what others are saying, and so much more. All these things can steal our focus off who we should know and believe in. 

We even look to ourselves for the answers. We trust ourselves more and more each day. 

One of the things that come in trusting and believing what we hear is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear that the circumstances in our lives will not go away or that they will not turn out the way we want them to. 

Fear can freeze you in your circumstances. You can’t move forward when fear comes in. Fear blinds you from what God is doing in you and for you. 

Mark 5:36

… Be not afraid, only believe.

 Mark 5:36

Amplified Bible (AMP)

Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear; only keep on believing.

 Luke 8:50

… Fear not: believe only

 ANDREW MURRAY – “Jesus, I believe in Thy glory; I believe in Thine omnipotence; I believe in Thy power working within me. I believe in Thy living, loving presence with me, revealing itself in Divine power.”

Do not be occupied with feelings or experiences. You will find it far simpler and easier just to trust and say, “I am sure He is all for me.” Get rid of yourself for the time”

“don’t think or speak about yourself; but

Think what Jesus is.

And then remember it is believe always”

 I like when he said “Do not be occupied with feelings or experiences.”

This is so true, the more we occupy our thoughts, our days, and our lives with what we feel or the things we experience, the more fear will come in and the more unbelief will come in and cause us to either go backwards in our walk or freeze us right where we are. 

The only way to keep moving forward in life is to be not afraid only believe in the one true God. 

 Mark 5:36 (PHILLIPS) “Now don’t be afraid, just go on believing!”

Look to Him. Know Him. 

 Psalm 37:3

Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord and do good; so shall you dwell in the land and feed surely on His faithfulness, and truly you shall be fed.

(adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth)

 MHC- 

Be not afraid that my coming will be to no purpose, only believe that I will make it turn to a good account.” Therefore fear not, faint not. Faith is the only remedy against disquieting grief and fear at such a time: let that silence them, Only believe. Keep up a confidence in Christ, and a dependence upon him, and he will do what is for the best. Believe the resurrection, and then be not afraid.

Lester Sumrall – Turning on the light reveals the reality that there is nothing to fear. This is a basic principle: much of what we fear will never bother us again if we see it for what it is. God is light, and by turning to God’s Word we can see that nothing should terrorize or paralyze us. By continuing to absorb biblical truth through daily reading and study, we will walk in the light as He is in the light; and in that blessed environment fear cannot get to us.

Romans 8:28

Amplified Bible (AMP)

28 We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose…

 So be not afraid, Only Believe…….

No one wants to hear that anything is impossible. Each year that goes by I hear this more and more. We are a people of goals and motivational speakers. 
Reminds me of the people who built the tower. God told them that He would not send another flood to destroy the earth, but they did not believe him.
Gen. 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
They were so into what they wanted and thought that they went against God. vs 6 they would not think that anything is impossible. 
But they did not please God. God went on to confound their languages. 
They did not believe God. They did not trust Him that He would do what He said. 
That is what is impossible: 
Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him…
Without faith IT IS IMPOSSIBLE…
TO PLEASE HIM….
MHC 2. What is here said of his faith, Heb. 11:6. It is said that without this faith it is impossible to please God, without such a faith as helps us to walk with God, an active faith, and that we cannot come to God unless we believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. (1.) He must believe that God is, and that he is what he is, what he has revealed himself to be in the scripture, a Being of infinite perfections, subsisting in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Observe, The practical belief of the existence of God, as revealed in the word, would be a powerful awe-band upon our souls, a bridle of restraint to keep us from sin, and a spur of constraint to put us upon all manner of gospel obedience. (2.) That he is a rewarder of those that diligently seek him. Here observe, [1.] By the fall we have lost God; we have lost the divine light, life, love, likeness, and communion. [2.] God is again to be found of us through Christ, the second Adam. [3.] God has prescribed means and ways wherein he may be found; to with, a strict attention to his oracles, attendance on his ordinances, and ministers duly discharging their office and associating with his people, observing his providential guidance, and in all things humbly waiting his gracious presence. [4.] Those who would find God in these ways of his must seek him diligently; they must seek early, earnestly, and perseveringly. Then shall they seek him, and find him, if they seek him with all their heart; and when once they have found him, as their reconciled God, they will never repent the pains they have spent in seeking after him.
 
Heb 11 – Those who walked in faith let Faith rule their lives. 
 
 [Prompted, actuated] by faith,  [Urged on] by faith,  [With eyes of] faith, [Aroused] by faith,[Motivated] by faith…. 
 
by [faith—[b]trust and holy fervor born of faith]
 
It is not about the outcome. There are many who did not receive: 
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
AMP. VS 6 For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].
 
BUT All Things are possible with God. Through Him, trusting Him, believing Him, Looking to Him, & Having FAITH in Him and who He is….
