2 Corinthians 4:7 – “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”
God can use simple people to work out His plans. The situations that you are in might not be conducive for you to be an achiever, but God has foreseen your future already. If you genuinely desire in your heart to be used by God, He will give you the success and strength for each day.
The Bible is filled with examples of people who considered themselves to be inferior, yet God used them. Abraham lied about his wife Sarah, but God forgave him and blessed him with children as numerous as the stars of the sky. Jacob lied to get his inheritance, yet through him God established the tribes of Israel. Moses stuttered, yet God used him to lead the Israelites. Aaron made the golden calf and caused Israel to sin, yet God gave him a second chance to be the high priest for His tabernacle. Gideon was scared and doubtful, but God used him as a deliverer. Samson had a lustful heart, yet God used him as a judge. David was young and ignored by his siblings, but God placed him to be the king of Israel. Peter, Andrew, James and John were fishermen, but God used them to be Jesus’ disciples and apostles. Paul persecuted the Christians, but God used him as His mighty apostle to the Gentiles.
God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty (1 Cor. 1:27). If you are using some limitation or hardship as an excuse for falling short of God’s best, it is time to change your attitude. You must believe firmly that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13). You cannot do anything with your own strength, but through Christ’s strength, you can be an achiever.
