DAY 7 // The Person God uses [Page 130]
I quite identify with the comment that Brengle makes: “People are asking God to use them, but sometimes he cannot.” It is not that God doesn’t want to use them, it is just they have not surrendered completely to Him; they are not humble and teachable.
I love hearing those stories about people who have prayed and prayed for the right person, and after many years of faithfulness the right person comes along. I think that there are many times when we can easily use people in ministry as space fillers, but too often if people are not gifted in that particular area, or they do not have the right attitude, or they are in it for all the wrong reasons, then I think we can do more harm than good. Don’t get me wrong people certainly have good intentions, but sometimes the Right person needs to be Right in Character, Chemistry, and Spirituality. But most of all they need to surrender all that they are to God, then He can use them.
