If You Are Weak And Often Fail, You Are A Perfect Candidate To Serve Jesus

COPYRIGHT WARNING

What this world consider wise, is not wise. What this world views as foolish, hides the wisdom of the ages. God does not reveal Himself to the proud, the self sufficient, and the self righteous. The One who made the universe comes to the humble, the seeking, the sincere. The reason that man cannot find God: his foolish pride.

When God sends His Messiah into the world, He will originate from a family of men who are insignificant to the world. God looks at the heart and examines the thoughts and intentions of a man. When He uses a person to make Himself known, He choses the weak, the untrained, the unnoticed. In this manner, no one would ever think that this person could accomplish anything by their own wisdom or power. When great things are accomplished by the weak and insignificant–everyone understands that what was accomplished, was done by God and not by men.

Isaiah 53:2b … He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him.

There are some who claim that Isaiah Chapter 53 is a description of the nation of Israel and was not intended for Jesus Christ.

In the Book of Acts, the Lord spoke to Philip and told him to take the road from Jerusalem to Gaza. While on this road, Philip met a man who was apparently there by divine appointment. Candace, the queen of the Ethiopians, had a servant who was returning from Jerusalem where he had been worshipping the God of Israel. While on his return journey, he was reading from the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah. As Philip meets this servant of the queen of Ethiopia, he asks him if he understands what he is reading.
