“But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise ; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong ; God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, so that no one might boast in the presence of God.” 1 Corinthians 1: 27-29
Sometimes we wonder why a colleague of us who is a ‘classified dummy’ can afterward be the overall winner in the entire class. We may even be surprised when we heard that someone won a scholarship, which he does not deserve.
It may be that we are shock that some people excel despite that fact that we are the one who supposed to excel in that area.
This just goes down to one truth. It is not our might, not our strength but it is God who shows mercy to us all.
God uses just anyone He wants. He does not wait for our permission before he can do what He wants to do. God is different and His uniqueness lies in His sovereignty.
It does not matter how brilliant you are. You academic level is not the requisite for God to use you. God uses even the dumpiest people in our world to do greater things.
This is why you have no choice than to put aside whatever pride that you have in you and get yourself to God so that He will use you in the best way and to His glory.
Your strength to live on in life is in God’s hands; the ultimate wisdom that you need to excel in all your endeavours belongs to Him and it is when you decide to let God manifest His supremacy in your life that you will live the unique life that you are destined for.
Do not think you can do anything without God. In fact, do not get it into your head that you are better off without Him. God is there for you and always. You only have to accept him fully into your life.
Final word; humble yourself so that God will use your abundantly and your life will be blessed.
