God doesn’t necessarily pick the people we would chose if we were to pick someone for a specific task or position.
As mere human beings we look at the outside of a person.
We look at a person’s upbringing , the colour of their skin , country of birth and so on. God does not look at any of these things. Neither does he care about the outward appearance.
King David was chosen to be king however he was overlooked by his father.
1 Samuel 15 says “the Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
How does God pick someone for a task ?
God will pick someone who lifts the name of Jesus alone. God knows our motives behind the work we do. He sees our heart .
He will only entrust us with a task if we will give him all the glory in the end and if we will point others to Christ alone.
God is the one who gives us gifts and talents. He chooses the weak things of the world to shame the wise.
If you are feeling weak and powerless today , I want to encourage you today and let you know that God can use you in such a big way.
Submit your dreams and desires to Jesus . He can use you beyond your imagination. The weaker you are, the more He gets the glory.
The Good News Translation says in 1 Corinthians 1:27
God purposely chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise, and he chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the powerful.
