Many of us have a desire to share the gospel, but are so focused on our perceived weaknesses we don’t follow through in obedience. Those weaknesses may include thinking we are not articulate, persuasive, knowledgeable, or popular enough (among other things) for God to use us.
The truth of the matter, however, is that God delights in using our weaknesses for His glory.
The apostle Paul told the Corinthian believers that God’s strength is perfected in our weakness and because of that we can rejoice:
“…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Cor. 12:9).
I’ve found this to be a prominent theme in my own life. Born with an inherited speech impediment, I couldn’t even say the most common word in the English language — “the.” Embarrassment and ridicule kept me defeated until one day I whispered, “God, if you will heal me of this impediment, I’ll always use my voice for you.”
I can’t explain what happened next. How do you explain the supernatural? Suddenly I had a control over my tongue I had never felt before. Eventually, a speech therapist helped me even further. But honestly, my speech will never be perfect this side of heaven, and that’s okay. God is magnified through my weakness and has allowed me to speak to hundreds of thousands about their need for Christ!
I founded EvanTell to help believers experience the same truth I found—God delights to use our weakness in evangelism for His glory.
I believe a holy God chooses to use ordinary people, weaknesses and all, to do His supernatural work of telling the world about Jesus. And my prayer for EvanTell has always been “Lord please do something of such a magnitude that it can only be explained by You.”
For the past 44 years, He’s been answering that request in amazing ways! In 2016, an average of 5.5 people heard the gospel every minute because of the work the Lord did through EvanTell.
