Unlikely Vessels

1 Corinthians 1:26–29 says,

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, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.

God delights in calling and using those the world passes by and counts as nothing. One old preacher said, “God isn’t looking for golden vessels, God isn’t looking for silver vessels, God is looking for yielded vessels.” I think that is true.

It is amazing what God can do through someone’s life who doesn’t have to have the credit.

You may feel like you do not have much to offer. If that is the case, then you are perfect! When God does great things through you, then He will get the credit. People will know it was Him and not you!

God is looking for yielded vessels that He can use in a dynamic, community–altering way.

Why not say today, “Here I am Lord, use me;” and after praying that simple prayer, get ready. God may bring some amazing opportunities your way to step out and be used for His glory.
