“God’s Strange Choices” – By Nate Carter

Pastor Nate Carter

“God hath chosen the foolish things … the weak things … base things … and things which are not … that no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

God wants you to see things like He sees them. He wants you to look beyond the obvious and see the actual. Five loaves and two fish were just enough to feed –~ one small boy for a day, but when he put it into the hands of Jesus, it fed 5,000 with plenty left over. When Mary and Joseph brought the baby Jesus into the temple, Simeon saw in that small child God’s salvation for the whole world (see Luke 2:28-30). May God help you today to see what is in you-the potential to make a difference in this world around you. Listen: “Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would increase abundantly (Job 8 :7, NKJV).

God’s not looking for ability-He’s looking for use-ability. If you’ve grown up believing that you’re “less than11 or that you never 11measure up,11 then it’s time you start renewing your mind on the Word. God can take a tiny acorn and produce a mighty oak. He can take a tiny seed and produce a great harvest. He can take one surrendered, dedicated life and affect a whole family and all its generations. Child of God, ask the Lord to use you today and go out expecting Him to do it.
