Does it matter where your message from God comes from? Does it matter who is praying for you? Do you overlook those who don't have a church title or credentials? How about this, do you look for a specific sound when someone is praying over you? Do you view them as imperfect? I have mentioned this a few times in Grandma's corner. I want to take a look at another angle. The same outcome, however? I always say, if Jesus can use a donkey to carry Him, He can use anybody.
Now let's examine these things. Do you believe God can use your enemies as your footstools (Psalms 110:1)? How about God using your enemies to bless you (Deuteronomy 28:7-9)? Do you believe the weakest believer has more power than the enemy (Luke 10:19)? Do you think that God will avenge you concerning your enemies ( Romans 12:19)? Do you believe a plot against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17)?
Do you believe God places you in a place or position for a reason (Psalms 2:5-6)?
God used Moses, a coward, and a murderer.
God used Samson, a hardheaded and arrogant person.
God used Abraham, someone who was not good at keeping his faith.
God used Peter, who was impulsive.
God used Noah; he was a drunk.
God used Rahab; she was a prostitute.
God used David; he was an adulterer and a murderer.
God used Isaiah; he preached naked.
God used Martha; she worried a lot.
Get to the point, you say? Let's examine this point. If an imperfect person has a message for you, the Word says God can and will use them. If your enemies are praying ill intentions for you, it will not work. God will have their prayer working in your favor. He can also have the trap they set for you be the one that traps them.
So my question to you again is, does it matter who prays for you? Does it matter what their title is? Does it matter how they sound praying for you? Do a hoot and a holler mean more than a quiet prayer?
1 Peter 4:10 says:
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms."
God uses imperfect people because they depend on Him. They are listening to God. God uses imperfect people because He gets the glory. Be mindful of the people who you think God didn't send.
What does it matter anyway, who it comes from? What should matter is a message is coming from God. What should matter is God is using someone. What should matter is God will be using whatever for your good.
