How God Keeps Us Usable


I have seen more people ruined by success than failure, states Ron Dunn. The longer we live, the more we understand how a weakness, trial or thorn in the flesh will make us more like Christ than our accomplishments. Listen to this wise pastor’s encouragement about the Number One qualification for becoming and staying useful to God. He uses not only the examples of Paul, Moses, and Gideon but the experiences that overflow from his own life to show the value of whatever it is in your life that makes you aware of your dependence upon the Lord. By His grace, such suffering is not wasted. It is transformed to His glory.

  2. Thank you. The simplicity of this message shook my hearts core and made me aware again how God’s grace is sufficient for me and His strength is made perfect in my weaknesses every day of my life.
