We often hear the word God can use anybody, He can change any man but little did we know that God does not use men in their raw state. For every divine usage there is always processing and pruning. God changes whoever He wants to use to fit into His own pattern so as to represent Him well. It is not everyone that is available that is fit for God’s use, not everyone zealous can carry divine presence, not everyone that is punctual or render all kinds of service in the house of God can be His vessel.
The first among the people God cannot use is the proud. To be proud means to have inordinate self esteem, boasting. A proud man or woman is suffering from high self esteem, he sees himself above and better than everyone. He believes he is wiser, knowledgeable, beautiful, smart than anyone, a proud person creates a class where anyone cannot match.
God cannot use the proud because he is equating himself with God, only God is in a class that no one is.
God cannot use the proud because he is never humble to learn or take to correction, he is always right and never ready to be led.
God cannot use the proud because he will be taking the glory of God to himself, whatever happens, he takes the credit and God can never share His glory with any man.
God cannot use the proud because because the work of God makes you lowly in spirit and in conduct, a proud man is always above and have a bossy attitude.
God cannot use the proud because God always loook for what He can make and not what is made, a proud man is self made.
If your desire is to be used by God to make impact in your generation, to be a blessing, to build a name that will be on the lips of people and generation after you, then you must be humble.
God uses people He can teach, lead and correct. He is ready to pour all of Him into the man that sees himself not “good enough” to be used.
HUMILITY IS KEY
