It's quite possible. My point is simply that God uses humans for His own ends, *whether those people are aware of it or not*. After all, we use technology today for the benefit of the Church (as well as society as a whole) that was developed by men and women of all kinds of faith, including no faith. To say that God raised a certain group up for a certain purpose is true, but it doesn't have to mean they are akin to demi-gods, else all of us would be useless in the building up of the Kingdom. I mean, heck, look at the philandering reputation of ol' Ben Franklin. Okay, he'll have to answer for that (if it's true; again, just take this as a rhetorical example) but that's not to deny the role Divinity had in the situation.
