God's Specialty

If God Is In Control, Why Is My Life Such a Mess?

FOR YOUR GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT

In Judges 6:10, the Lord said to Israel, "'I am the Lord your God; do not worship the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you live.' But you have not listened to me." 

God loves to take inadequate, weak, insecure people and transform them to serve His purpose.

God was charging His people with ingratitude to Him for what He had done in the past, but all the while, in His mercy and grace, He was raising Gideon to deliver them. What a great God we have!

Gideon was a very insecure man. He was insecure about his tribe, his clan. He was insecure about his own place in his family. Gideon expressed total inadequacy and lacked qualifications. 

But God specializes in these situations. He loves to take inadequate, weak, insecure people and transform them to serve His purpose. God does not have difficulty using the weak and the insecure; He has difficulty using the proud and the arrogant.

Can He do something with you? You better believe it. It doesn't matter how you feel. Come to Him and say, "Here I am," and watch what He's going to do.

Prayer: I am so thankful, God, that You can use anyone who is willing to surrender to You. Thank You that You can use me even with my weaknesses. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong" (1 Corinthians 1:27).
