I came across a poster a few years ago that once again reminded me how amazing God is. When people struggle with doubt or personal failure, there is a great fear that God cannot or will not work through them to make a difference. But a quick look in the Bible at some of the people God used will take away those fears. Here's what the poster said:
Do You Seriously Think God Can't Use You?
Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 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. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
