Can God Use You?

I have sometimes wondered why God chose me. I know there are many people that are more talented that I am. They can sing better, write better, witness better, etc. However, God looked down at me and said She is my chosen one.

There are many in the Bible that were not the "pick of the liter." Noah was a drunk. Isaac was a daydreamer. Abraham was very old. Joseph was abused. Leah was ugly. Moses had a stuttering problem. Gideon was afraid. Samson had long hair and was a womanizer. Rehab was a prostitute. David had an affair and was a murderer. Elijah was suicidal. Isiah preached naked. Jonah ran from God. Naomi was a widow. Job went bankrupt. John the Baptist ate bugs. Peter denied Christ. Martha worried about everything. The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once. Zaccheus was too small. The disciples fell asleep while praying. Paul was too religious. Timothy had an ulcer and Lazarus was DEAD! (These facts were found in an article with Author Unknown)

Now...No more excuses! If God could use those in the Bible, just think what He could accomplish with you. God can use you to your full potential. Just remember that you aren't the are the messenger.

God is waiting for us to use our full potential!
