When you are faced with a big challenge, do you automatically look for the most powerful means to solve the problem? Well, my friend, that is not thinking the way God thinks. The Bible tells us that it pleases God to use what the world considers weak, foolish, base and despised to bring to nothing things which are mighty.
“What is that in your hand?” God asked.
“A rod,” Moses said. And with that rod, he performed miracles and confounded the might of Pharaoh.
“Five loaves and two fish,” a little boy said. And with that little boy’s lunch, Jesus fed 5,000 men, and his disciples gathered 12 baskets full of leftovers.
“The jawbone of an ass,” Samson said. And with that, he slew a thousand Philistines, who were the enemies of God’s people.
“Five stones and a sling,” said David the shepherd boy. And with one of his stones and the sling, he brought down Goliath, the mighty Philistine champion.
Many times we have this habit of despising some people who may not be prominent and may not look that physically sound, but God has His own ways. When He decides to use someone for His own Glory, then no powers of hell can stop it. The only way the Lord can use your life is you are humble and let Him work in you.
My friend, don’t despise what seems weak and insignificant to the world. God can use them to bring down the giants in your life!
It pleases God to use weak, foolish, base and despised things of the world to bring to nothing things which are mighty.
