I want to talk to you about “least likely to be used” so many times we as ourselves questions like can God use a person like me? Some people only believe that God uses those who have degrees and a title position to carry out His work.
God is no respecter of person in 1 Corinthians 1:27 says “but God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. Let me tell you about a woman who was a prostitute and God used her in a mighty way. Yes a prostitute, who would have thought.
The woman I am talking about is Rahab, I know many people when they talk of her they only talk about how she slept around but see there is more to her then just sleeping for money, God used her to hide the spies in Jericho for they was to secretly look over the land for Joshua.
What influence did this woman Rabah have? She certainly did not have no title or position within the community, but what she did have was influence and because she had influence with the King in Jericho, he trusted what she said. The King came to her house and he asked her where are those men? She said the men was with her but she did not know where they came from. Because of what use did by hiding the men Joshua promised her that her entire family will be spared from being burnt in the city.
Have God sent you out to tell others about His Son Jesus, but you didn’t go because you didn’t think you was qualified to do it? Did someone come to you seeking help about something and you sent them away because you did not want to get involved? Every day the Lord opens doors of opportunities for us. Are we going to be like Rahab and be used by God or are we going to sit back and continue to ask “will God us me?”
