The Scriptures below made a huge impact on me as I read them recently. I will write them here so you won’t have to look them up.
I Corinthians 1: 26-31
For ye see your calling, brethren , how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
That no flesh should glory in his presence.
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption .
That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
These verses are very refreshing and give much hope to all who read them, especially if we are just “plain joes or janes” and feel that we don’t have special talents or gifts that can be used for the Kingdom of God.
The awesome thing about these verses – God is looking for people who absolutely don’t have the ability to do what He has called them to do on their own merits.
Most of the disciples Jesus called were rough, hard, unlearned people who were definitely not suited for the job from man’s standpoint. We are told specifically in verses 29 and 31 that only God deserves the glory and He will not share it with flesh.
So if you have surrendered your life to God and are asking Him to use you, EXPECT, I SAY AGAIN EXPECT Him to tell you to do something that you are not capable of doing on your own.
Why are we so afraid of trusting our life to the God who created the universe and everything in it and made MAN the crowning part of His creation. Just because you can’t see with your physical eyes where you are going, doesn’t mean that God doesn’t know.
Why not go out on a limb? Isn’t that where all the fruit is? -C S Lewis-
