If God Can Use Them, God Can Use You

If you think God can’t use you, open your Bible and be reminded he can use anyone!

Jacob was a liar.
Moses was a murderer.
David was an adulterer.
Peter had anger issues.
Miriam was a gossip.
Paul was a persecutor.
Rahab was a prostitute.
John was self-righteous.
Naomi was a widow.
Martha was a worrier.
Gideon was a coward.
Thomas was a doubter.
Timothy was just a teen.
Abraham
Esther was an orphan.
Jonah ran away.
Moses disobeyed.
Jeremiah was depressed.
Elijah felt burnt-out.

God is in the business of using frail, fallible and ordinary people, because that’s the only kind there is.

So, stop looking at yourself and all the reasons why God can’t use you, and start looking at the cross and His invitation to be a part of His-story.

He’s not looking for perfect, He’s just looking for available.
