Three Types Of People God Can Use Mightily
God can use you and I. There is definitely no man God cannot use. Many times, when we talk about God using a man as His vessel.
We talk about God, using someone who is educated, eloquent, wealthy, perfect and strong.
Whereas, God does not consider all these.
Furthermore, there are many people who are available for God to use but they are not usable. Because, they are too rigid.

What It means For God To Use Someone
God uses people to accomplish His purpose on earth. Everyone is created for a specific reason. Nobody is a biological accident.
Now, when He uses a man. He uses him to carry out His major assignment on earth.
Truly, these men were called by God, they accepted and He used them.
3 Types Of People God Can Use
• The Weak
1 Corinthians 1:27
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;
In God’s mercy, sometimes, he chooses those who are weak in order to confound the mighty.
Moses was a stammerer, yet, he was used mightily by God. He might look weak in the eyes of men but he is flexible for the Almighty to use.
How would God call a man to deliver a whole nation and he could not speak well?
Again, How was he going to address the people he would lead? How would he speak to the king?
All these questions were not issues of concern to God at all. He was only concerned about the work Moses would do for him.
Are you someone like Moses? Have you been saying you are too weak for the Almighty to use?
My friend, leave that to God to sort out. God will never call a self-sufficient man. His plan is to call the weak, so s/he can depend on Him.
I have heard people say it times without number that; ” I don’t know how to face the crowd, how will I be a preacher?”
Some people have neglected the calling of the Lord upon them because they felt God made a mistake to have chosen them.
See, accept the call! Follow him and walk in His divine plan for your life. Peter was a weak man when Jesus called him.
More so, there are so many weak people among Jesus disciples, yet he used them. Peter was talkative. Even Thomas was doubtful.
Make yourself usable and you will be used mightily by God. If He has chosen you, gladly accept the call.
However, if you are strong, you will rely on your talents, skills, education and wealth.
But, if you are weak, you will tend to rely on God.
• A Humble Person
SERVING THE LORD WITH ALL HUMILITY OF MIND, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
Another type of person, the Almighty can use is the humble. Humility is a virtue that draws promotion to a man.
No doubt, God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble (1 Pet 5:6).
Whoever is powerful and self sufficient cannot deeply tap from God’s power.
See, if you rely on your talents, you will be disappointed.
Furthermore, until you see your powerlessness without God, you can’t be used mightily by Him.
So, He uses someone who sees himself as nothing. Someone who sees no power in himself but in God alone.
Haven’t you asked yourself why He used Moses mightily in his days? This is the secret;
(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
Learn from him and humble yourself by working for him where you are at the moment.
And He will uplift you, do not get puffed up. Because, you won’t enjoy God that way.
• | The Hardworking
1 Samuel 16:11
And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, HE KEEPETH THE SEEP And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
Samuel was told by God to anoint a king for Isreal in Jesse’s house. But, when he got into Jesse’s house.
Interestingly, he found the sons of Jesse at home doing nothing. But, the king-to-be was tending the flock at that moment.
David was sent for and was anointed by Samuel to be the King. What’s my point? God doesn’t use lazy men.
Gideon was called when he was threshing the wheat in a winepress. Read it here;
And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites.
David was called when he was rearing the sheep.
Peter and Andrew were called while they were trying to catch fishes. Read it here;
Matthew 4:18-19And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
Even Paul was called when he was on a journey. This shows that God calls men who are not lazy. He doesn’t call sluggard.
For instance, you don’t say because you have searched for job almost everywhere and you were not employed.
You now think the next thing to do is to start a church. No! It doesn’t work that way.
Nobody should come into ministry with a sense of laziness. You’ve got to be laborious if you are in ministry.
Laborious people will read and meditate constantly on the Word. Whereas, a lazy person, will never do that.
Do you want Him to use you? Be hardworking. In your local church, be effective and active.
Great things are done by men who are laborious and dependent on God.
Additionally, if God has called you. It may be an implication that you are not a lazy type. Just accept the call.
• Talents, skills, education and grammatical prowess are not principal bait for God’s calling.
• Humility will enable virtues/anointing flow from God’s throne to you. So, that you can be used mightily.
• Accept God’s call upon your life without considering your weaknesses. He knows how to make you great in His hand.
