From Mighty Rivers 

God specializes in using ordinary people to do extraordinary things. That is not a cute phrase or a trite cliché. All throughout the Bible, that is who He used—people with checkered pasts, no education, different backgrounds. When you look under the hood of your life, you can see God wanting to use you in a special way. 

The question is, “Why does God use some people more than others? “                                

Our limitations don’t hinder God; they don’t prohibit God; rather they are platforms on which He works. God’s primary agenda for each of us centers around one profound thing happening, and it is not geared to education, economic standing, age, or where we live. This one thing is available to every believer all the time.

This one thing can transform people who are ordinarily dull, passive, not very exciting to be around into people who are dynamic.

This one thing is what God commands and values most. He likes a lot of things, but this one thing is a must, and every time He sees it in your life, He rewards it.

This one thing brings holy pleasure to the Creator; this one thing is the key to why God uses some people more than others.

This one thing is the basis on which God evaluates your life at any given moment; this one thing is what God is seeking to develop in you, more than anything else.

What is it? It is faith. Faith in God. The number one thing God wants to develop in us is faith. There is only one major thing Jesus rebuked the disciple for—their lack of faith.

We know that we are saved by grace through faith. We know that we have been justified by faith, and that we are to walk by faith.

So how do we come to have this faith? Next week’s column will give seven specific ways to develop your faith.

Until then,

Faithfully yours.
