Truth: God delights in using the weak, insignificant, least of these people to fulfill His kingdom’s purpose.
While the world looks for the strongest and the bravest and the biggest and the best and the most accomplished; our God, seeks the weak, and the weary, and the poor, and the “insignificant,”and the lowly, and the unseen and the least of these.
He empowers them to accomplish things beyond human comprehension.
This is one of the many things I love about God.
King David started out as a lowly shepherd boy, the least in size of all his brothers. So insignificant that his own father didn’t even beacon him from tending sheep in order to be considered as the chosen King to replace Saul.
But, God saw him.
God knew he existed.
They shared long hours in the fields while David tended his father’s sheep.
God heard David’s prayers and songs of praise.
God empowered David to conquer large, fierce animals who threatened to kill him and the sheep.
God and David had a strong relationship long before David became King.
God purposed big things for David to accomplish through His power at every stage of David's life.
When you feel small and insignificant, delight in knowing that this feeling does not define who you are. It does not reflect what God thinks of you.
He sees you–the real you.
He purposed specific things especially for you to do.
He knows your heart and hears your thoughts.
He loves you with an everlasting love that defies time and obliterates the chains of sin.
1 Corinthians 1:27-31
If you do not measure up to the world’s standard, feel blessed. God sees you and values you. Submit to Him and expect Him to do great things through you.
