If God can use an ass…


If God can use a donkey to restrain a prophet’s madness, He can use you.

How is God going to use you today?

“But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey–an animal without speech–who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.”

– 2 Peter 2:16

God bless

James 🙂

  1. Wasn’t Samson another example? 4 Now please be careful not to drink wine or beer, or eat anything unclean; 5 for indeed, you will conceive and give birth to a son. You must never cut his hair, because the boy will be a Nazerite to God from birth, and will begin to save Israel from the power of the Philistines
    Judges 13:4-5 HCSB (Holman Christian Study Bible)
    He too was set aside for God’s purpose, get he got into everything he should have avoided. But we see, he brought the temple and killed every present, himself included. Thoughts?

    • Samson was absolutely a good example and I coincidentally just read about that today.

      And what about Jeremiah? He was a bull frog 😉

      Point here is that God has a history of using people who don’t quite “measure up” in one way or another for great purposes.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      God bless

  3. And don’t forget Jesus asking specifically for a donkey, one that had never before been ridden, to ride in to Jerusalem on. God loves using the least of us to show his Glory. 🙂

  6. I often feel unworthy, yet God seems to be using me in the midst of my junk to help others in the midst of theirs. Go figure!

    I spend too much of my time as an ass. I’m really glad God can still use me.
