Apostle Grace Lubega
Acts 10:34 (KJV); Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
God is no respecter of persons.
We live in a world that tends to categorise people as capable and incapable; those worth taking note of and those whom destiny has frowned upon and undeserving of a second look.
But throughout the scriptures, God has proven to us that He can use anyone to leave His mark on the world.
He is not deterred by your family background, skin colour, bank balance, moral history, height, size, language or education. To Him, these are merely elements and they always melt in the light of His glory and grace.
God used David, a shepherd boy, to lead Israel. He used Joseph, a foreigner away from home in Egypt. He used fishermen and tax collectors to turn the world upside down. He used Paul, a man with blood on his hands to lay the foundation of the New Testament.
What is your excuse, child of God? Is it your lineage, bloodline, race, or history of consistent failure and disappointment?
Paul comforts us in this regard when he says, “For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;” (1 Corinthians 1:26-27).
God wants to use you, you must dare to believe Him.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God can use anyone to leave His mark on the world. He is not deterred by your family background, skin colour, bank balance, moral history, height, size, language or education. To Him, these are merely elements and they always melt in the light of His glory and grace.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for finding me worthy to minister. Thank You because You have ably equipped me for the ministry of the gospel. I am ready and available for Your work and what You want to do in the world. I have chosen to believe You; no excuses stand in the way of my service to You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
