This is “How God Wants To Use You Part 1”. Many times, we only hear about the patriarchs like Abraham, Moses, or David. But there were many unsung heroes in the Bible, without name recognition but of absolute importance to God. God has something He can use in you, regardless of how insignificant you may think you are.

to The



Alone while the

D is still

on the


roades and The Voice


hear that is


in is the

Son of



discloses and he walks


me and he

talks aren’t you


and he tells

me I

am his


oh and the

joy we share

as we





other has













you love his presence thank him for it

thank him for it thank him for it praise


name open your Bibles with me to First

Chronicles chapter 4 and then we’re

going to quickly go to Ezekiel chapter


and I want to share with you something

different and I believe though it is a a

word that everybody in this room can use

I want God to use me I don’t know about

you but I’m still

available think of Isaiah when God

needed somebody he said here am I send

me so today I want to talk to you about

how God

wants to use you in two ways that he

wants to use you in the church in your

family in your

business in life in general these two

areas that I’m going to talk about God

using people you may find

yourself absolutely being used mightily

of God if you’ll be open to what I’m

going to share the first one is in 1

Chronicles chapter 4 in verse 23 and

this is what it says it says there were

The Potters everybody say The

Potters and they were the ones who dwelt

among plants and

hedges there they dwelt with the King

for his

work if you read that verse in its

entirety that I wouldn’t take time to do

but it’s lists all these important

people these powerful people these

Mighty people things that they were

doing that were so uh incredible and

visible and notable and and and and all

struck struck things that they were able

to do and right toward the end of it I

love that the word of God

notices simply The

Potters and notice they dwelt among

plants they were in the background they

if you wouldn’t even know they were

there you could just see their ball cap

working behind the Shrubbery or they

were they were were among the plants and

the hedges kind of hid and then the

other verse that I want to share is in

Ezekiel 27 the

Ancients of jabal and the wise men

thereof were in thee thy caers and then

he starts talking about the

ships strange that the Bible so

detailed many times when we think about

people that God uses we think about the

heroes Abraham and Isaac and Samson and

David the mighty Gideon the powerful

Deborah and Esther and there’s only one

of one Esther and one Deborah and one

Abraham you you just don’t see

multitudes of people like them their

faith can almost intimidate us their

achievements can almost make us feel

like we could never measure up to the

greatness that those men and women have

reached but there are many also unsung

heroes in the background in the shadows

of scriptures as a matter of fact

anytime you see any of these great men

or women that I just mentioned in the

Forefront in the Limelight in the on the

stage of life doing something that is

affecting history and multitudes of

people there’s other people who are in

the shadows and in the background

that you may not be aware of and I thank

God that he uses us all to do his

will and in the text that I read there’s

a Potters that are mentioned that dwelt

with the King Without The Potters

certain things would not have he was

preparing a huge party he was having the

most honored guests coming from all over

the world but he takes time to mention

the scripture does The Potters the

people who took clay and and water and

formed vessels that could be used to

serve the food and make basins that

would hold the candles to give light to

the king’s Palace and the the they made

the the cups and the chales that the

wine would be poured in the king would

not be able to entertain the guest and

change their lives with his with his

presence if it was not for people who

did what they could do with their hands

in the hedges and among the plants they

were never in the dining room they were

never in the palace they were never in

the bright lights they were just

potters and then he talks about ships

and he’s saying that it’s the caulkers

you know what a cauler is do y’all know

what a cauler is how many of you know

what a caulking is yeah one who seals up

takes sealant and seals up uh uh

sheetrock or seals up a boat if it

starts to leap and God says these people

are worth mentioning and immortalizing

in the

scripture every single person is

important and God said I want there to

be two kinds of people always present in

families in homes and in churches

I want

Potters Potters Potters who begin to

take the Next

Generation your children your family and

you put your hands on them The Potter’s

job was to find the clay and once he

found the clay he would begin to mold

that clay he would take water and he

would begin to smooth out the clay and

get the lumps out and put it on the

wheel and he would begin to work and

make that clay into a vessel that could

be used at the king’s table who are The

Potters The Potters are youth workers in


church that see young people and man

their moms and dads who still believe in

their teenagers when they mess up cuz

they will do dumb things and they’ll do

it over and they’ll do it over and

they’ll do it over and over again but

you just keep putting your hands on them

you’re the Potter in their life and you

keep shaping them and you keep molding

them and you keep pouring into them you

keep believing in them and you keep

encouraging them don’t you give up on

them you keep loving them you keep

telling them you’re special I’m telling

you God’s got his hand on your life

we’re called to be

Potters I thought about people who work

with youth are Potters parents are

Potters I thought about these musicians

are Potters because a great musician

like the all these musicians are great

musicians they’re not average they’re

not it normal they’re above the cut they

could they they could be playing

anywhere but a great musician will see

another musician and begin to use that

clay and form that clay and say now let

me show you how you move from that cord

to this and really fatten things up and

that song that chord right there will

fit right beauti out of that that’s what

a man did to me when I started playing

the piano I couldn’t play the piano and

I learned it in one summer there was a

man in my dad’s church who played piano

and he he just saw the talent he saw I

could play the Sachs and he knew I had

music in me and he said let me teach you

some chords and he showed me three

chords and then he showed me one song

and I played that and he kept pouring in

and said now take it here now let’s go

to another key let me show you how to do

this and show you and it’s amazing how

that we can raise up a whole whole

another generation of singers a whole


generation of worshippers a whole

another generation of

musicans you got to do it we got to do

it we’re

Potters I thought about business people

that entrepreneur Spirit you don’t have

to be in the tribe of Judah to be a

Potter but what about what about

entrepreneurs what about people out

there who have made it what about people

out there who have built business

businesses that that are astounding and

and you’ve got hundreds of employees and

God has done great things in your life

but you also ought to be looking and

maybe it’s in your own family use that

gift that amazing you think different

you know things that somebody else you

just know it instinctively communicate

that use that become a Potter and pour

into them and then tell them your story

and don’t forget don’t forget the only

reason I made it was was because I

started giving and tithing and honoring

God and he began to open the windows of

heaven and he blessed me and he Favored

Me Oh this isn’t a commercial for money

I’m not asking we we’re not going to

take an offering you have to give it if

you want to give it I’m telling you

that’s how you shape the Next Generation


greatness is a Potter Potters brought

light to the King’s house the Potter

didn’t seem very important but without

the position of the

Potter there would be no party in the


house and somebody said I don’t want I

don’t have to have the Limelight I’ll

work behind the hedges but I don’t want

the party to go out in the King’s house

too many people need to eat from his

table the bread and the wine the body of

Christ I want that party to keep

going you know when you get my

age I don’t even care if I preach some

big conference I get invites all the

time but I’d rather raise up two or

three anointed preachers like Javon and

different ones and I’d rather see them

get up before 20,000 people and preach

more than

me why because I’ve done it but I get

more joy out of seeing them do


Hallelujah I don’t know where I’m going

with this sermon but I feel like

shouting right now does anybody believe

in the Next Generation does anybody

believe God has his hand on the Next

Generation does anybody believe the

young men will see visions and the old

men will dream dreams and together they

will begin to make vessels of Honor meat

for the master




see they’ll do dumb

things but we can’t afford to lose one

of our young

people and if we’re not going to lose

them we’re going to have to have some

people they can’t just come and hear

from the preacher on the sermon and then

go away somebody’s got to be touching

their life all week long shaping their

mentality shaping their Spirit shaping

and molding their way of thinking

Potters get

involved Potters get involved in the

life of the youth in the Next Generation

mold them God’s looking for Potter’s

dads God’s looking for Potter’s

mom God’s looking for Potters a Potter

says uh I can’t let you go out in

that let me shape you a little bit in

that area let let me help you a little

bit you know those those friends let let

let me I want to know who let me look at

your phone let me see your phone you you

ain’t got nothing to hide do

you what are you doing you’re shaping a


vessel then he said in Ezekiel he

started talking about beautiful ships I

didn’t have time to read it he said they

were expensive and gorgeous and

beautiful ships we’d call them yachts

he said the sales were so expensive they

were made out of material the best

material from Egypt and the and the

boards of the ship came were the Cedars

from Lebanon that been imported and oh

these gorgeous ships and he’s talking

about the captain and he’s talking about

the pilot which is the captain talking

about all these powerful important

people and then he says but he also


caulkers that down in the hull of the

ship nobody sees

them they’re not up there with the

wheel doing Instagram pictures they’re

down in the bottom of the

ship and they’re caulkers y’all know

what a culer is now they told me I don’t

i’ had to never use one of these and I

was trying so hard to get that part off

I wanted to illustrate I was going to

shoot it if it was shoot I didn’t know

what it would do and they said you

cannot do that because if you want if

you want to ruin your outfit I said oh

no Sharice will kill me don’t do

that and this is and this is what we’re

supposed to be

too because it doesn’t matter how

beautiful the ship is it doesn’t matter

how beautiful the marriage is it doesn’t

matter how beautiful the home is it

doesn’t matter how beautiful of a life

you have

built you better learn that you have to

have caulking

because because they understood the ship

is beautiful and it’s what we build is

incredible but it has to be maintained

and so they had people down in the

bottom of the ship and all they did was

look at the Cedars of Lebanon and they

looked at those boards and every once in

a while it would begin to seep with

water and they would caul it seal

it they would seal it up from

leaking they would SE it up because they

understood that if the ship starts

taking on water it doesn’t matter how

beautiful it looks outwardly if it’s

leaking on the inside it’s a matter of

time before it goes down the caulkers

were men wise men in the

ship and they said oh no this ship is

going somewhere and so I I need to I

need to stop the

seeping of things from coming in that’s

what happened to Noah God told him to

pitch it called it pitch it pitch The

Ark on the outside and the inside in

other words I want you to pitch it I

want you to caul it on the outside to

keep some bad stuff from coming

in but I also want you to caul it on the

inside to keep the good

stuff from going

out we ought to have each other’s back

we ought not to sit down and be okay

with hearing what everybody’s saying and

it ought to be true with words and it

ought to be true

online I want to tell you something you

need to be careful what you say and you

need to be careful what you listen to

some of you are have some haters on

Instagram or on redit or whatever and

you need to get you a holy ghost

caulking gun and you need to just say

you know what I’m beautiful I look good

I don’t care what they’re saying about

me they may be bringing up my past but

I’m on cul it Hallelujah and I’m going

to say thanks be unto God I don’t have

to give myself to

that don’t don’t listen to it don’t read

it you’re a new creation in Christ the

old things have passed away CA

it somebody shout and say it’s the truth

turn to somebody and say you need to C

what God’s given you in this revival I’m

not going to lose it you can lose the

worship if you want to you can lose the

the consciousness of God if you want to

those of you who got touched in this

revival it can just you’ll just seep it

out if you let it but if you get you a

good word and you get you some desire

you can caul

it and you can keep what God gave

you I really believe God wants to use

you this year I really believe that God

wants to place his hand some of you are

going to help mold and help form even

your own family your own children you

have the hands of a Potter and a spirit

of a Potter and an anointing to shape

and to mold and to make that vessel into

what God has called it to be and if

you’re listening to me right now and you

don’t know Jesus Christ as your savior

why don’t you start off right why don’t

you start this week off by saying Jesus

Christ I love you just say it I love you

I know you I know who you are and I

Surrender I believe in you wash me in

the blood of Calvary cleanse me and fill

me with your precious Holy Spirit I want

to be Spirit-filled I want to walk in

Victory this year I want to walk in the

strength of God I want the wisdom and

favor of God on me and my family and

then say this Lord use me use me I know

you want to use me and I want to help

put people’s Liv lives back together and

keep them in a place of Victory use me

to bless others this year in Jesus name

you know that’s a prayer that’s right in

the will of God you don’t even have to

worry if that’s God’s will it’s his will

that not any should perish that includes

you it’s his will to save you it’s his

will to use you and I thank God for that
