God Can Use Anyone
May 17 - Devotion
The scripture mentioned some of David’s men of valor that did remarkable things in their lifetime. It is recorded,
“These are the names of the mighty men whom David had: Josheb-Basshebeth the Tachmonite, chief among the captains. He was called Adino the Eznite, because he had killed eight hundred men at one time. And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle, and the men of Israel had retreated. He arose and attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand stuck to the sword. The Lord brought about a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to plunder. And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines. But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the Lord brought about a great victory” (2 Samuel 23:8-12).
God always does remarkable things through any individual or a group of people that release themselves for his use. God can use anyone, and he will use you and me if we cooperate with him! The extent of God’s use of anyone cannot be imagined; if a person says “Yes Lord,” God will rejoice; flex his muscles, and use the fellow until the world is saturated with his glory! Therefore, every Christian should be familiar with a statement that says, “If God can use anyone, he can use me!”
Dear Lord, “If you can use anyone, you can use me!” I am ready for your use. I let down my pride, and I release myself for your use. I will not be rebellious to you anymore, and I will do whatever you ask me to do. I will jump if you say jump, and I will sit if you say sit. I will stop questioning your authority again, but I will completely yield myself to you. Please use me today, tomorrow, and throughout the days of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
