Lord, You Can Use Me!

The next time you feel like GOD can’t use YOU, just remember….
Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Sampson 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, more than once
Zaccheus was too small
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer…
AND 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.

  1. This is a nicely arranged post, Paulette. God can and will use anyone regardless of their faults.

    Thank you very much Minister Paulette, for sharing. God bless you!

    • Hello Noel,

      Thank you! I’m so glad the Lord looked beyond my faults, and saw the needs in my life! Thank you so much for stopping by today, and for commenting! May the Lord bless you!

  2. This was wonderful! It’s great to know we all can be used! No excuses, eh? haha!
    love you and God bless you as He works through you in beautiful ways!

    • Hello Encouraging Debbie,

      Yes, it is great to know we all can be used. Yielding ourselves unto Him, stripping ourselves of pride, and allowing His anointing to work in us; now this is a recipe for success! 🙂 No excuses! God bless you! Continue to allow His anointing to flow in your life!

  3. AMen Paulette Jacob felt the same way, and we know him to be a Jacob is known for his trickery, for he tricked he tried to persuade Esau to sell him his birthright and when he said no, he tricked his poor father into believing that he was Esau and so his dad ended up giving him the birthright. he came out of his mother’s womb grasping his brother’s Easu heal, all because he wanted to come out the womb first.

  4. Thank you, Minister Paulette 🙂
    Yup. There is much in me He can use!
    Praying we will be yielded as we allow Him to work in and through us. ( Aren’t you thrilled we don’t get to write our own story? Praise His name!

    • I’m so sorry I missed your comment, and a beautiful comment at that! 🙂 How wrong we are, when we think we have become so broken, that the Potter is not able to put us back together again, a vessel unto honor, and fit to be used by Him! Thank you so much, Ann! God bless!

  5. But . . .
    I usually start with a “But. . .” when God asks me to do something, but . . .
    No ‘buts’!!!!
    It isn’t about me and all my shortcomings and failures.
    It is ALL about Him.
    If He chooses to use me, it is HIS work in me, not mine – thankfully!

    Truly, He is an amazing God!

    • Thank you Angela, for another pearl of wisdom! Again, I do apologize for missing your comment! I truly enjoyed it. No ‘buts’ about it! 🙂 One of my favorite phrases, “It’s all about Him.” God bless you!
