Yes, God can use you mightily!

As Christians we can be in awe of the great men and women in the Bible and wonder how God could ever use us. However, God is no respecter of persons, He shows no partiality (Acts 10:34). We are all His children (1 John 3:2a), saved (Rom 10:9) and filled with the same Holy Spirit power (Acts 1:8) that empowered Jesus to do all He did on the earth (Matt 3:16).
Jesus’ disciples were regular people, just like us. James and John were fishermen (Matt 4:21-22) and Matthew a tax collector (Matt 9:9). When Peter and John were arrested after healing a lame man and preaching about Jesus, the rulers of Israel marveled that they were both, “uneducated and untrained men” (Acts 4:13; NKJV). The apostle Peter went to preach the gospel to a Roman centurion, the centurion fell down in worship before him but Peter lifted him up saying, “I am just a man” (Acts 10:26). Stephen, a deacon in the early church, wasn’t an apostle, but he did signs and wonders (Acts 6:8); when arrested for his faith, he preached a sermon that occupies a whole chapter in the Bible (Acts 7).
Having read about the people above we may still disqualify ourselves because of our past. Well, let’s look at the apostle Paul. He persecuted the early church but God forgave him. Paul became a Christian and God used him to spread the gospel across Asia and into Europe and he also wrote a large portion of our New Testament. We are all regular people but Jesus calls us to go and preach the gospel and said, “signs, wonders and miracles would follow” (Mark 16:15-18) and according to verse 20 they will!
