God Chooses Ordinary People

May 1, 2019 

But Moses said to the LORD, "Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue."  Then the LORD said to him, "Who has made man's mouth?  Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind?  Is it not I, the LORD?" - Exodus 4:10-11 

And then when God finally came to him—you can read this in Exodus 4:10—and He said, “Look, I’ve got a great work for you to do.” The proof that Moses was ready is that he didn’t think he was ready. Now, don’t miss that. 

So many of us, when us think about, “Oh, there’s really nothing I could do for the church,” that may mean that you are finally qualified, because God wants ordinary people. He chooses ordinary people to do great things.  He chose Moses to lead His people out of Egypt, and He can use you to do great things beyond your wildest imagination! 

"All of God’s people are ordinary people who have been made extraordinary by the purpose he has given them." - Oswald Chambers
