Can God Use You?

Ken Harrell

Senior Pastor

Through the account of Gideon in Judges 6–7 we see and learn that God has the ability and desire to use anyone that is willing to be used by Him. God loves you and wants to use you right where you’re at. However, in order to be used to your maximum capabilities, there are some things our life must exhibit. In this message, we examine four key qualities in being used by God.

Fill-in Notes

Take Away / Application

Courage, commitment, confidence, and compliance are key qualities in being used by God.

Discussion Questions

Don’t be afraid to add to this list, skip questions that don’t work for your group or branch off with additional questions as the discussion unfolds. Conversation is key! This is the time to work through the application of scripture and have group members figure things out together.

  1. The object of a Christian’s faith is Jesus. In your daily life, many things call for your attention. What distracts you the most from Jesus?
  2. Of the four “must haves” discussed in the message, which are you strongest in? Which do you need the most improvement with?
  3. The Bible is not just what God DID say, it’s what He IS saying. Does the Bible, all of it, play a relevant, real and life-directing role in your life? Why or why not?
  4. Read 1 Peter 5:8. Pastor Harrell said, “The devil puts scarecrows right in the middle of where God wants us to be.” Are there any scarecrows in your life? Share.
  5. Of the two dangers we face, what is the primary cause of our lack of commitment? Is our focus on our enemy or in our relationship with God? (Do we overestimate our enemy or underestimate God? Do we underestimate our enemy or do we not trust in God?)
  6. When it comes to compliance and obeying God’s Word, are you picking and choosing what works for you, or are you truly following all that God says?
  7. Why is it dangerous to pick and choose what to obey from God’s Word? When we pick and choose from the Bible, who’s truly in charge, God or you?
  8. God has the ability to use you. Do you believe that today? Are there any lies you’ve allowed to creep into your life and cause you to be ineffective for God?
  9. Pastor Harrell said, “Little things enable you to do big things.” What is one small step you need to take to allow God to use you?


How would God use your Group this month to care for or reach out to those in need? Pray for this opportunity, plan it out and see it through.
