What God is looking for....

1 Corinthians 1:26-29: For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.

·         Study the scriptures; see the men and women God chose:
o   Elisha - farmer
o   Nehemiah - cupbearer
o   Peter, James & John – fishermen
o   Esther – orphaned girl
o   Mary Magdalene – demon-possessed woman
o   Priscilla & Aquila – tent makers
o   God is not looking for the person with the best resume, qualifications, or experience to fulfill His will…He is looking for a surrendered heart that recognizes everything we are and everything we have is HIS and HIS ALONE!
o   2 Chronicles 16:9: For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
·         To God:
o   Availability is worth more than aptitude
o   Smarts are superseded by true surrender
o   He wants your love and loyalty more than your quickness and qualifications.
God is looking for you…
                                        will you in simple faith respond today?
