"Used By God"

"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty"  1 Corinthians 1:27

Don't say that God can't use you.  Look at the list of characters He used in the Bible to fulfill His purposes.  He used John the Baptist-- a wild looking sort of guy, dressed in animal skins with long hair living in the wilderness.  He used Gideon a coward.  He used a shepherd boy, David, and made him a king. He used a murderer, Moses, to lead His people out of Egypt.  He used Paul, a persecutor of Christians.  He used a teenage girl to give birth to the Messiah. 

He doesn't call only the educated, the older, the strong, the wise, the rich.  He calls whomever He chooses.  He is an "equal opportunity Employer".  He will use whoever has a yielded heart and desire.  He will use whoever makes themselves available to Him.  He will use those who say, "Here am I.  Lord, send me."  If you "fit that bill", then you are a candidate for Him to use you to do His will.  More than likely you are already being used by Him and aren't aware of it because you are looking for Him to do some grand and glorious work through you.  Giving a cup of cold water to a thirsty person is being used by Him.  Sharing your lunch with a hungry person is being used by Him.  Being a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or giving a smile to someone is being used by Him. 

Have a great day.  Don't say that God can't use you because of this or that.  If you make yourself available to Him He will use you, and is using you.
