Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you.
One thing is clear in the Scriptures: it seems as though God intentionally goes out of His way to find individuals who don’t necessarily look like they will amount to much. He chooses people who, at first glance, do not even appear to have what it takes.
When God was looking for a man to lead the nation of Israel, whom did He select? He chose a little shepherd boy named David, who was watching over a flock of sheep. When God wanted to have someone lead an army to defeat the enemies of Israel known as the Midianites, whom did God choose? He chose a cowardly man named Gideon who couldn’t even muster up the courage to show himself publicly.
In 1 Corinthians, Paul wrote, “Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. . . . As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God” (1 Corinthians 1:26–27, 29).
God is not looking for ability as much as He is looking for availability. Would you be a person who would say, “Lord, I don’t have much to offer, but what I have, Lord, I offer to you”? Then just watch what God will do.
