God can use anyone or anything for His purpose.
He used a raven to feed a prophet.
He used a donkey to speak to a disobedient seer.
He used Moses, a stutterer, to speak to a king.
He used Samuel, a child, to speak to a priest.
He used Samson, a disobedient fornicator, to send a message to His enemies.
He used Rahab, a prostitute, to save two soldiers.
He used a wayward woman at a well, to evangelize to an entire city.
And, He used Paul, a murdering zealot, to write much of The New Testament.
God can use the disobedient, the lawless, the prisoner, the drunkard, the liar, the blind, the intellect, the religious, the ignorant, the hated, the politician, the lowly, the teacher, the student, an executive, or a king; for His purpose.
He can even use YOU.
There's really nothing that can stop you from being used by the Love of God. –Except maybe, YOU.
–Just a little something for you to consider the next time, —before you decide to say, “No.” L.
