WHY NOT US (PART 1)

WHY NOT US (PART 1)

1 Corinthians 1:27 (NKJV) But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.

When you look through the stories of the Bible, one thing stands out: God does not do things like the world does.  He operates the way He wants to, and nobody is going to tell Him differently.  We see this so clearly in the type of people that He uses.  He does not go for the high and mighty.  He goes for the low and humble, and makes them into who He wants them to be.  For the next few days, I want us to look at different people in the Bible, and see how God chose them and used them.

King David:  David was a young man that watched his father’s sheep.  One day when the prophet Samuel came to anoint one of his sons to be the next king of Israel, his father never even called him to come in to meet this great man of God.  Yet after Samuel went through all of David’s brothers, he asked if there was another.  Look at what the Bible says:

1 Samuel 16:10 Thus Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, “The LORD has not chosen these.” 11 And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.” 12 So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the LORD said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is the one!”

David’s father might have passed him up, but God did not.  At times, you might feel like you were passed up, but stay faithful and close to God your Father.  He is the one that has great plans for you!  He never misses the one that He wants, and what He is looking for is a person with a pure heart.  So today, be that person.  Why not you?

CONFESSION:  It is God my Father that promotes and makes strong, so today my trust is in Him.  He will get me to the place that He wants me to be.
