CAN A MAN BE USEFUL?
1 Corinthians 1:27 – 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. (NIV)
A child fell ill and had to be rushed to the hospital. The mother called a neighbour who said his car had no fuel. She rang the pastor who replied that he has some foreign ministers and cannot leave them. Therefore, because she can’t afford to lose her only child to the same sickness that killed the husband, she carried her son but couldn’t move fast due to his weight. Along the way, she begged for help, but the people just watched as she fell many times.
The woman kept moving until a madman noticed her and took the boy. She couldn’t talk but pointed to the direction of the hospital. The half-naked crazed man carried the boy on the shoulder and said, ‘all will be well’ as he hurried. The doctors, on sighting the madman, knew something was wrong, therefore attended to the boy immediately. 10 minutes later, the mother arrived, and the doctor broke the news, ‘if your son was brought 5 minutes later, he would have died.’
Beloved, God can use anybody or thing to get to you. ‘No man is a highland; everybody needs somebody to get somewhere’. And, as our Bible text affirms, God uses the feeble to confound the mighty. The person you belittle today can be your saviour just as the madman. Even when men fail, the Lord can transform your disappointment to divine appointment. Never take God out of your life’s plan; pray earnestly and allow Him to lead the way. Be Born Again!
Hymn: He Leadeth Me — Joseph H. Gilmore (1862)
1. Father, in my life; thy will be done!
1. My coat of many colours (glory), hijacked in the dream, be restored!
IS THERE ANYTHING GOD CANNOT USE?
