Our Daily Manna 22 December 2020 CAN HE USE YOU?
BASIC SCRIPTURE: 2 TIMOTHY 2: 14-24
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
There is this story a great man of God told us when we were in Service sometime in 2017. The story was about a young lady Who was a student in one of the universities in South West Nigeria. The university was hit by acute water shortage such that inhabitants of the university community could not get water to do their formal chores. The young Christian lady was pressed on one of the water scarcity days and needed to go to the toilet badly to relieve herself. She went’ to the first toilet and discovered that it had been badly messed up and was not even finished. Human faeces was visibly loaded in it. She rushed out and couldn’t use it. She went to another and met it in the same condition and couldn’t use it. As she went from toilet to toilet, she found none that she could use. Meanwhile, this young woman had been praying to God to use her so when she couldn’t use any of the toilets, the Lord asked her “Why can’t you use the toilets?” She said to God; “they are too dirty.” The Lord then said to her, “Do you know why I can’t use you; you are too dirty.” Wow! Verses 20-21 of today’s scriptüre says: “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver but also of wood and earth, and some to honor and some to dishonor, If a man, therefore, purges himself from thee, be shall be a vešsel unto, honor, sanctified, and meet for the masters use, and prepared unto every good work.” Isaiah 6:8 says: “Also I heard the voice of the LORD, saying; “Whom shall I send and “who will go for Us?…” , as 2020 ends and 2021 begins, there is a question to answer, “Can God use you? If your answer is “NO. then you have work to do.
Probably, laziness is the reason why God can’t use you yet. secrete sins may be the reason; pride may be the reasons maybe the reasons WHATEVER IS THE REASON, ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT: God uses BROKEN PEOPLE like you and I to rescue BROKEN PEOPLE like you and I. Ask Him to BREAK YOU AND REMOULLD YOU FOR A PURPOSE HIGHER THAN YOURSELF
The cross shows us the seriousness of our sins. It also shows us the immeasurable LOVE OF GOD! That is why He calls UNQUALIFIED PEOPLE and QUALIFIES them through a process of BROKENNESS for His use! Use today’s devotional to examine yourself, clean up, repent, and allow Him to QUALIFY you (turn you into a vessel of GOLD)! Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people!
