God uses the unlikely

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

God has unusual qualifications for people who He uses. What may be the requirements that the world has, often times means little to God. God is in the business of using those people who are unlikely candidates. I am so glad about this, because this means that God can use me.
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.
1 Corinthians 1:27 & 28 God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things, and the things that are not to nullify the things that are.
Let’s look at the categories that God makes use of:
1. The weak things.
2. The lowly things.
3. The despised things.
4. The things that are not.
People who fall into these categories make ideal candidates for God to use. Perhaps you think you have disqualified yourself in one way or another. I want to encourage you and remind you that God uses the unlikely.
