God Chooses The Weak To Bring Down The Mighty

August 15, 2011

God is interested in your success.  If you are not the strongest, wisest, swiftest, most knowledgeable and most skillful in this world, God can still bless you with good success when you depend on His grace.  You can rise above mediocrity through his unearned and undeserved favor.  The system of the world only rewards the strong, while those who are weak are neglected and sometimes despised.  But, in Jesus, there is hope for the weak.

God’s way is completely opposite from the world’s way.  Scripture says that God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.  When you give your weaknesses to the Lord, supernatural things happen.  When you give your weaknesses to the Lord you stop being conscious of your weaknesses and the Lord instead supplies you with his strength.  There is countless people that have given their weaknesses to the Lord only for Him to make it a strength.

Pastor Joseph Prince when he was a child had a severe stuttering problem, now he is a world renowned preacher.  He turned his stuttering over to the Lord, depended on Him and in turn the Lord blessed him with a gift of speaking.  In my opinion this is done so we may not boast of our own successes and power but give credit to Him who is our supply.  Others can look at what we were once weak in and then say, “That must be God.”

It is those who are proud and who depend on their human strength that God cannot use.  So when you look at yourself and see only weaknesses, depend on God’s unmerited favor and know that God can and will use you!

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.   —   1 Corinthians 1:26-27

In God’s hands of grace, the foolish and weak things become even wiser and mightier than the wise and mighty things of the world.
