WHEN CHOICE COLLIDES WITH LIFE
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WHEN CHOICE COLLIDES WITH LIFE.*
1 Cor 15:9 *For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.”*
*Insight and Highlight.*
There are times when God's choice collides with where we find ourselves in life.
God's choice collides with life.
When it does, it overcomes and overules where we find ourselves in life.
Many people are often surprised by how God's choice overides wherever we find ourselves and whoever we are.
In God's Kingdom, when God’s choice collides with life, persecutors of the Church, thieves, prostitutes become preservers of the Church.
Many people are employed in the secular because they were qualified for the jobs.
This is not always the same with God.
With God, many orders like natural, biological, age, education, and years of experience may not be considered in His selection process.
Just like there are people who appear to us to be well qualified for God's assignment yet are not chosen, so also are people who are far from eligibility yet are chosen by God.
The truth is that in God's selection and election process, He does not call the qualified, but He qualifies the called.
As much as God wants us to develop ourselves educationally, spiritually, and in all other needful areas, it must never be thought by any of us that remaing least is an indicator that God would use us.
The truth still remains, however, that most of God's choices are the least of all people
David, in the house of Jesse,
1 Sam 16:11-12. In Judges 6:15, Gideon describes his clan, the Abiezrites, as *"the weakest in the tribe of Manasseh."*
1 Sam 9: 21, *Saul replied, “But I'm only from the tribe of Benjamin, the smallest tribe in Israel, and my family is the least important of all the families of that tribe!*
It is not an encouragement to be the least, and God must see it that you are not choosing to be the least in order to facilitate His choice.
Remember that those whom God chose had no control of their being the least.
There is hope for everyone who believes Christ.
When His choice comes to the fore,
He qualifies the unqualified as qualified!
The more down you are, the more God can reach for you.
*Call to Word action.*
God's choice collides with life and overrides it because God sees differently.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
With God, the least on the list often tops the list.
I will be the head, not the tail, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
