What Can God Do Through Me?

 

Have you ever wondered why God's grace fell on you?  When I ponder on the fact that God wants to use me for His perfect purposes, I truly become amazed.  I am soooooooo far from perfect that I think... "what in the world can I do for God?"  I mean... I have this problem and that weakness... oh and this issue... HOW CAN I POSSIBLY HELP further the kingdom of God?  

 

This is actually the wrong question to be asking though!  The question should be, "What in the world is God going to do through me?"  When we change the question from "what can I do?" to "what can God do?" the possibilities are endless because God has no problems, weaknesses or issues.  God takes our foolishness and uses US to bring His Son glory!!!!  He desires to do this so that no one can take the credit for His work.  When we can daily realize that it is not about us, but about God... we can find hope and peace because, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Phil. 4:13)  In other words, His perfect plan for us is doable since He is going to be the One giving us the strength and power to do it!

 

The following verses sum it up best...

 

1 Corinthians 1:27-31 state, "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, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.  But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption- that, as it is written, "He who glories, let him glory in the Lord."
