Potential (Day 6 of 7) from YouVersion, read by Andi and Brian Hale
The past few days, we’ve read stories throughout the Bible that show how God used the most unlikely people to do great things.
He used people who weren’t accepted by society to change culture. Moses was bad at speaking, but God used him to persuade the leader of the Egyptians to let millions of slaves go. He used David, who was the smallest of his brothers, to defeat a giant. God used Joseph, who looked after sheep, to help lead a nation.
Here’s the thing. God doesn’t use the most talented; He uses the most willing.
God gives people purpose.
If you don’t feel good enough, or if you don’t know what your purpose is, just know this: God will give you purpose. You don’t have to be the best or the most talented—you just have to be willing. Be willing to let God use you.
‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ‘
