…For God selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world calls weak to put the strong to shame.
— 1 Corinthians 1:27 (AMPC)
God often chooses those who are the most unlikely candidates for the job. By doing so, He has a wide-open door to show how His grace and power can change human lives.
Each of us has a destiny, and there is absolutely no excuse not to fulfill it. We cannot use our weakness as an excuse because God says that His strength is made perfect in weakness (see 2 Corinthians 12:9). We cannot use the past as an excuse, because God tells us old things have passed away and all things have become new (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).
How God sees us is not the problem; often it is how we see ourselves that keeps us from succeeding. If you’ll see yourself as God sees you, grateful for His transforming power, no obstacle can stop you from His purposes. You are recreated in God’s image and resurrected to a brand-new life. Your destiny is just waiting for you to claim it!
Prayer of the Day: I thank You, God, that You choose the weak things of the world to shame the wise. Thank You that there is no excuse that can keep me from fulfilling my destiny in You. My life is Yours; have Your way through me.
