Topic: YOUR WEAKNESSES ARE GOD’S TOOLS 2
Text: 1 Corinthians 1:27-29
📖27….”But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
📖28….And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
📖29….That no flesh should glory in his presence.”
🔥Indeed, the weaknesses of man, are tools in God’s hands. If this is not true, why would he chose to create man, His image and likeness, with dust instead of precious stones or gold? Instead of gold, God used the base and despised dust to both confound the wise, and stop any flesh from boasting of any glory in his presence. The weakness of Zacchaeus was his size. According to Luke 19:2-5, he was a man with little stature, even though he was chief among the publicans and was rich. Because of the weakness from his stature, he had to climb up a tree to be able to see Jesus. That was how his weakness (smallness), brought Jesus to his house.
🔥🔥This reminds me of how God used an affliction I had some years ago to make room for me in the bank. Then, I wanted to cash money to pay the leasehold of a piece of land we were to start the Church on. Prior to then, I was afflicted with a skin rashes that drove people away from me. The sight was so disgusting that as soon as I entered the bank and queued behind a young man, on seeing my face, he gave me chance to be at his front. The next person did same and I became number one on the withdrawal line. The moment the payer saw my face, he too quickly collected my teller and gave me my money and I left the bank. Beloveth, what we call weaknesses most of the times, can actually make room for us in God’s presence.
🔥🔥🔥Through our weaknesses, failings, and helplessness, God manifests his wisdom and displays his power. Hence Jesus said in 2 Cor 12:9 that His strength, the Godhead’s strength, is made perfect in human weaknesses. Imagine Moses with slow of speech and tongue in Exodus 4:10, how God manifested his wisdom through him and had Pharaoh defeated in Exodus 14:26-28. God delights in humiliating Satan using our weaknesses, as he did to Goliath with David’s sling.
🙏Dearest father, you know how disadvantaged I am because of my weaknesses. Therefore, use them to my advantage in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, always move me forward in life, anytime the enemy wants to use my disabilities against me in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Omnipotent Father, use my victory even when am weak, to humiliate the devil, in Jesus’ name.
THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
GOD IS TURNING OUR WATER TO WINE!
