God Can Use You!

The next time anyone feels like GOD can’t use them, just remember…
Noah was a drunk
Abraham was too old
Isaac was a daydreamer
Jacob was a liar
Leah was ugly
Joseph was abused
Moses had a stuttering problem
Gideon was afraid
Samson had long hair and was a womanizer
Rahab was a prostitute
Jeremiah and Timothy were too young
David had an affair and was a murderer
Elijah was suicidal
Isaiah preached naked
Jonah ran from God
Naomi was a widow
Job went bankrupt
Peter denied Christ
The Disciples fell asleep while praying
Martha worried about everything
The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once
Zaccheus was too small
Paul was too religious
Timothy had an ulcer.
AND Lazarus was dead!

Now! No more excuses!
God can use you to your full potential.

God is Busy

GOD Is Busy

If you don’t know GOD, don’t make stupid remarks!!!!!!

A United States Marine was taking some college courses between

assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan . One of

the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist, and a member of the

ACLU.

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to the

ceiling and flatly stated, GOD if you are real then I want you to knock me

off this platform. I’ll give you exactly 15 min.’

The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop.. Ten minutes

went by and the professor proclaimed, ‘Here I am GOD, I’m still waiting.’

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his

chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking him off the

platform. The professor was out cold.

The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.

The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there looking on in

silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at

the Marine and asked, ‘What in the world is the matter with you? ‘Why did

you do that?’

The Marine calmly replied, ‘GOD was too busy today protecting America ‘s

soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid stuff and act like an

idiot. So He sent me.’

The classroom erupted in cheers!

God’s 26 Guards

Here’s a message that will bring you chills:

Have you ever felt the urge to pray for someone and

Then just put it on a list and said,

‘I’ll pray for them later?’

Or has anyone ever called you and said,

‘I need you to pray for me, I have this need?’

Read the following story and may it change the way

That you may think about prayer and also

The way you pray.

You will be blessed by this….

A missionary on furlough told this true story while

visiting his home church in Michigan.

‘While serving at a small field hospital in Africa,

Every two weeks I traveled by bicycle

through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies.

This was a journey of two days and

required camping overnight at the halfway point.

On one of these journeys, I arrived in the city

where I planned to collect money from a bank,

Purchase medicine, and supplies, and then begin

my two-day journey back to the field hospital.

Upon arrival in the city, I observed two men fighting,

one of whom had been seriously injured.

I treated him for his injuries and at the same time

Talked to him about the Lord.

I then traveled two days, camping overnight, and

arrived home without incident….

Two weeks later I repeated my journey.

Upon arriving in the city,

I was approached by the young man I had treated.

He told me that he had known I carried

Money and medicines.

He said, ‘Some friends and I followed you into the jungle,

knowing you would camp overnight.

We planned to kill you and take your money and drugs.

But just as we were about to move into your camp,

we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.

At this, I laughed and said that I was

certainly all alone in that jungle campsite.

The young man pressed the point, however, and said,

‘No, sir, I was not the only person to see the guards,

my friends also saw them, and we all counted them.

It was because of those guards that

we were afraid and left you alone.’

At this point in the sermon,

one of the men in the congregation jumped to his feet and

interrupted the missionary and asked if he could tell him the

exact day this happened.

The missionary told the congregation the date, and

the man who interrupted told him this story:

‘On the night of your incident in Africa,

It was morning here and I was preparing to go play golf.

I was about to putt when I felt the urge to pray for you.

In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong;

I called men in this church to meet with me here

in the sanctuary to pray for you.

Would all of those men who met with me on that day stand up?’

The men who had met together to pray that day stood up.

The missionary wasn’t concerned with who they were,

He was too busy counting how many men he saw.

There were 26!

This story is an incredible example of how The Spirit of the

Lord moves in behalf of those who love Him…

If you ever hear such prodding, go along with it.

Nothing is ever hurt by prayer except the gates of hell.

I encourage you to forward this to as many people

as you know.

If we all take it to heart,

we can turn this world toward God once again.

As the above true story clearly illustrates,

‘With God all things are possible’.

More importantly, how God hears and

Answers the prayers of the faithful.

After you read this, please pass it on and

Give God thanks for the beautiful gift of your faith,

for the powerful gift of prayer, and for the many miracles

He works in your own daily life… And then pass it on.

Who says God does not move on the earth today?

I asked the Lord to bless you as I prayed for you today.

To guide you and protect you as you go along your way.

His love is always s with you, His promises are true, and

when we give Him our cares you know

He will see us through.

So when the road you’re traveling on seems

Difficult at best,

just remember I’m here praying,

And God will do the rest.

Pass this on to those whom you want God to bless

Seeking the Kingdom of God

“Most of us ask ourselves, “Why are we really here?”

Who we are and what we are is the answer. Some say we are here to create, to live in joy. And that is True. But it goes deeper than that.

We are here to know God, to become aware of the Power within us. “Seek ye first The Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto ye.”

As we go within to the core of our being, we find the Truth of who we are. We are Spiritual Beings having human experience. We’ve heard that before many times, but as we go within, we enter into our own inner depths. As a result, we gain the world.

Often we put the cart before the horse. We work hard to get where we want to be, which is usually further, higher, and richer.

But we find when we get there, we’re not really there. It’s deeper and far greater than we ever dreamed.

We all want instant gratification, but that’s not the way it works.

It takes time and effort. It is in spending time within that we find what we need most. It’s not in week; it’s not in a month.

It’s in God’s perfect timing. But it’s worth it. It can happen instantaneously, but usually there is a gradual deepening of understanding and clarity”
