Topic: HOW GOD USES THE WEAK
Bible Reading: Exodus 4:10-12
📖10….”And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
📖11….And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
📖12….Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.”
🔥The Lord Jesus Christ confirmed to us in John 9:1-3 that, God doesn’t just use the weak, but he sometimes makes some people weak so he can use their weaknesses to create glory for his own name, by manifesting his works thereby. Our lead text from Exodus 4 above, is a proof of how God intentionally creates some people with errors, that He would later use for his own glory. He eventually asked Moses in Exodus 4:11 that, who made his mouth and tongue to stammer? God answered there and then that it was himself. So, the solution was also with him. This is why Paul rejoiced in his infirmities because he knew that God who either made them or allowed them, will also take care of them…2 Cor 12:9-10.
🔥🔥In Isaiah 40:29 & 31, God categorically said that, He gives power to the faint, increases and strengthens them that have no might. The bottom line is waiting upon him, to have our strength renewed like the eagle’s. When God found Peter, he was nothing but a Simon. One who hears but doesn’t necessarily obey. Jesus converted him from Simon to Cephas…John 1:42. Which means a rock that cannot be moved from God. He found him a fish fisher, but turned him to a men fisher…Matt 4:18-20. He found Paul very educated in the Jewish law, and a persecutor of his Church, but made him a defender of Jesus’ testament among the uneducated gentiles…Phil 3:7-10.
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, how God uses our weaknesses is that when he finds anyone blind amongst us but have legs, even though he cannot see, God keeps him. He then proceeds to look for a cripple that have eyes, and can see. When he brings these two together, he makes them to contribute their strengths. The blind man will carry the cripple on his shoulders, and he uses the eyes of the cripple on his shoulders to see. So, whatever disability we have, once we turn to God, he will give us ability over that weakness.
🙏Precious Redeemer, redeem my weaknesses with your strength, and teach me what to do or say at every given time, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, use my failings and inabilities to manifest your glory and works through me forever, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Dearest Father, take me from nobody to somebody by the abundance of your abilities, in Jesus’ name.
