You are never too weak to make a difference

Read: Luke 1

How often have you caught yourself saying (or thinking), "I couldn't possibly" or "God would never ask someone like me to do something like that"?

Awareness of our shortcomings is good when it drives us to Jesus. But too often, we limit our expectations of God based on how we see ourselves. We say Jesus is sufficient to save us from sin, but deep down we still believe we are too broken to be part of God’s plan. This is not the case! God wants to work through us, and He is an expert at using what we see as weakness for His purpose.

In Luke 1, God chooses Mary to be the mother of Jesus. Mary was young and unmarried. She wasn’t from a royal family, and she was not engaged to a powerful man. By human standards, Mary was an unusual choice to be Jesus’ mom. And that is exactly how God wanted it.

God desires our obedience. Sometimes we get it twisted and believe God needs our talents to accomplish His purpose. Other times, we feel like we couldn’t possibly be used because we think we have nothing to give. The truth is although God does not need our help, He allows us to use our abilities because He is gracious. When we are faithful to what God has called us to do, we get to be part of His plan. And like Mary, we get to carry Jesus to the world.

Reflect:

  • What are your weaknesses?
  • How might God be able to use your weakness for His purpose?
  • What about your attitude needs to change so Jesus might be honored through your life?
