1 Corinthians 1:26-31

26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 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. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

I don’t know about you, but I read this and I am so thankful that Jesus found me.  THANKFUL, that He revealed Himself to me.  THANKFUL, that I had friends and pastors around me encouraging me to keep walking, keep going, keep on the track – eventually you will find the road.

I have come realise that God doesn’t require amazing gifts and talents, but actually just wants a heart surrendered to HIM, to do amazing things.

So many wonderful servants of Jesus have just done what was in front of them to do.  As a result, they have seen peoples’ lives changed, communities transformed, cities revived and nations changed.

A person fully surrendered to Jesus Christ and His purpose is the most powerful person on earth.

Lord help me to keep my eyes on YOU.  Continue to fill me with your spirit so that I can see beyond what I see.  Give me the strength and courage to keep going even when at times I don’t know where I am heading.  Help me stay the course that you have destined for me.
