David was a young man when he stood face-to-face with a giant named Goliath. Moses had a speech problem. Tola was a leader of Israel, but was also a social outcast. Deborah was a woman leader in a man’s world. Peter was a fisherman, not a preacher. Paul was a mass-murderer.
In what area or realm of God’s service do you feel weak or ill-prepared?
Are you feeble in prayer? Are you unable to share your testimony? Are you scared to ask the obscene mouth behind you in the restaurant to respect your Lord and His name? Are you too poor to give financially to your church? Are you too timid to pray in public?
In whatever area of your spiritual life you feel weak and unable, then you are the perfect candidate for God’s grace and power!
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Corinthians 12:10).
God finds His delight in those who can’t do something, but are willing to be used. The sad truth, however, is that most of us have become convinced by the lies of “can’t” … so we don’t trust God and “do”. How much better to acknowledge your inability and then stand securely on God’s calling and ability. His power is your strength for today.
