But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Ever felt underqualifed? Like what God was calling you to do was way over your head and you had no idea how in the world you were going to accomplish it?
Yep. Me too. But then I read this scripture in 2 Corinthians 12, and I realize that maybe, just maybe, God chose me because I COULDN’T do it. Maybe, he looked down at this 26 year old girl from Texas and said, I want to use her, despite of her. I want to make it so obvious that it’s ME working in her that only I could get the glory. And so…He did.
And here I am. And here you are. Messed up people who just get called into God’s perfect plan.
But thankfully, we are not alone. The Bible is full of people who were seemingly underqualifed. Mary? She wasn’t married yet. Moses? He had a stuttering problem. Joash? He was just a kid. Rahab? She was a prostitute. Saul? He was a murderer.
Yet, God chose them. Mary birthed Jesus, Moses led the people of Israel out of Egypt. Joash became a king. Rahab saved lives. Saul became Paul and was a powerhouse for the Lord.
And what about us? Well, our story just isn’t finished yet!
