Can God Use Anyone....Even Me?



Isaiah 64:8 - And yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter.

We all are formed by your hand.


When you are being used by God, that’s when you’re at your best.

Yesterday, I read this on social media and decided to use it as a jumping-off point for a topic.


You might think that God only uses people with impressive abilities and gifts, or perhaps you believe God selects individuals who have been to seminary and received extensive training. Alternatively, you may think God favors those with a profound knowledge of the Bible.

In reality, God uses His people regardless of their abilities, graduation status, or knowledge of the Bible. In the Bible, none of the people He used were chosen based on their status or abilities; they were selected because God knew them and their hearts, and He equipped them. While abilities and attributes can be helpful, they are not on God's checklist. He chose you because He loves you and knows YOU.


Philippians 4:13—” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Don’t fret if you find yourself being utilized for His purpose, take heart! God sees potential in you that maybe even you don’t see yet!


Stay in the guidance of God, and you will always be ready to be used.

When we talk about being used by God, it isn't some impersonal or demeaning concept. Instead, it involves stepping into our divinely ordained roles with courage and faithfulness.


Today, I am reminded not to put God in a box. We put our own abilities in a box but we don't need to do that with God. He can do the impossible.

May we always remember that God can use anyone! I am also reminded that we should not be afraid to allow God to use us. We don’t have to be perfect or check all the right boxes before God can use us. God can do whatever He wants, however He wants, and through whomever He wants! After all, He is GOD!!!


The Bible makes it abundantly clear that being used by God is about willingly surrendering your will to His and choosing to walk in obedience. It involves allowing Him to work through your abilities, and even your inabilities for His glory.

So, how exactly does one get used by God according to the Bible? The answer lies in seeking Him with all your heart and making yourself available for His service. From Noah building an ark to Paul spreading the gospel across continents, they were ordinary people who simply said yes when God called. And just like them, each one of us has the opportunity today to be used mightily by our Creator!

According to Scripture, everyone is created with a divine purpose. Ephesians 2:10 says, 'For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.' This tells us that each one of us has been thoughtfully and intentionally designed by our Creator for specific tasks. Isn’t it amazing? He didn’t just throw us together haphazardly. Instead, He carefully crafted each one of us with individual purposes in mind.


Romans 8:28 – And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.


It’s not always easy to comprehend why certain things happen or why we’re put in specific situations. Yet, one thing is clear from the scriptures; every experience and interaction can be seen as an opportunity for growth and fulfillment of His divine purpose.

Learning to see ourselves as instruments in His hands allows us to live more fulfilling lives while contributing positively to the world around us.
