Do you ever find yourself feeling like you don’t have a lot to offer in service to God? You can’t preach or teach or sing. Of what use can you possibly be to Him?
Well, if you feel that way, God’s got you exactly where He wants you to be!
God is not looking for people who think they have a lot to offer. In fact, it’s the ones who think they are so talented and special that God is lucky to have them who are of no use to Him.
2 Corinthians 4:7 (NKJV) But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
God glorifies Himself by using people who don’t seem to have a lot to offer!
Here’s something I’ve discovered in my life: I’m not qualified to say what I have that God can use! He has built qualities and capabilities into me that I may not even be aware of.
He’s not asking for me to give Him what I think is valuable; He’s asking for me to give Him myself. Then He can shape me into exactly the person He can use for His purposes.
And when people see what God can do through someone who has all the limitations I have, they won’t be able to help giving Him the glory He deserves!
