Our God is what we could call a ” Perfect gentle man” He never invades anyone’s privacy. He could have chosen to make us do things against our will; but He gave us a choice instead. He always reveal His personality in any family through one individual. There could be a whole family who are all preachers and ministers of the gospel but, it usually begins with just one person.
Let’s do a quick check through the bible, Moses; a stammerer and a killer. David; he was the least of his father’s house, a “rudy” sheperd boy. Abraham; a baren old man. Jacob; a con artist. Peter; an extraordinary liar. Paul; a murderer. Finally, our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ; a child born in a manger.
All these people have something in common; inadequacies, you would have expected God’s choice to be better. Think about it, if God is so big why could He not choose to reveal Himself through the elites, nobles and the upper class? Why must it be people who were not “socially acceptable” as it were.
His choice of selection is a clear insight into how He thinks. He never uses the seemingly “ok” people;but He makes the people He uses “ok” eventually. Its not about the people..It’s who He is and what He does. He is always looking and working His way into the hearts of men simply to clean ,wash and make them absolutely new.
So you are a drug addict; but you love inspirational or perhaps gospel songs,or you’re a prositute but you just like to sing praises, or even worst an atheist who likes reading the bible. You are not weird…It looks like it ; but you are not. You see you are only filling a vacuum in your life that only one person would ever fill, God.
People will not accept you…They will judge you. They will doubt you. But if you choose to not “observe lying vanities” and don’t stop that pull and drive from God..Soon you will be the one they all look up to. Now it’s never going happen my your power or strength, it takes God’s spirit to accomplish such things.
You are not the useless entity you thought you were…at least not to God. He could and would use you to bring smiles and even life to people across the globe. So before you pull that trigger…or you hang yourself or do something that you may never be able to reverse. Think again..what if you were really hand-picked by God to show the world He truly lives….You just might be the only reason your world has as a tangible proof of His existence.
