“God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.” 1 Corinthians 1:28-29
When you realize Who you’re dealing with, it will free you from a lot of hangups about being used by God! You tend to look at your weaknesses, your mistakes, and your inadequacies and conclude you don’t qualify in God’s eyes. God sees that same list of deficiencies as prime real estate for glorifying Himself. You sometimes forget that the God Who made something out of nothing loves to show off when you bring your imperfections to Him!
People who think they have it all together are like a dirty glass containing clean water: they deflect and distract from what’s most important. Because you are so aware how much you need God, He finds your life irresistible. You are a prime candidate for miracles, transformation, and heavenly advertisement of what God can do. Don’t hide your weakness, my friend, present it to God in humble surrender and watch what He does with it. His reputation for creating beauty from ashes will amaze you and those around you.
