There are times when I feel very small trying to unbury my life from a thousand tasks as if I were the lone ant. When God chooses to reveal how important a person is to Him, it may come as a surprise that He actually chooses the weak, the foolish, the powerless even the despised people of the world. This is because the sooner we rid ourselves of self, the better it is for the birth of His kingdom in our hearts! So, the next time we feel small or like our impact is not so great, remember that God’s weakest moment is greater than the most powerful human strength. Amazingly, He chooses to include us in His great plan for the world. – Teresa
I Corinthians 1: 24-31 (NLT)
24 But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles,[b] Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy[c] when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world,[d] things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. 31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”[e]
