Excuses, Excuses
Christianity vs. Spirituality

Ordinary for the Extraordinary

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.--Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV

In my last post, I wrote about Moses and how all of us, like Moses, tend to make excuses for why we aren't able to do what God has called us to do.  Today, I'd like to follow up that post by sending you over to visit Deborah Shank at Chocolate and Coffee to read her April 9th post entitled "God Uses Ordinary Folks"

Here's a teaser for you from her post there.  Deborah says:

"Our success in Christ should never be limited or measured by man's opinion or evaluation. God has given each of us incredible gifts and talents. As He opens doors for our ministries we should approach them with confidence thanking God for the continued work He is completing in our lives each day. He doesn't necessarily need the most educated and the most talented individuals to accomplish great tasks...God equips the called."

Deborah concludes by exhorting us to press on in confidence...

"Don't allow the enemy to discourage you by telling you that you are unworthy for the task God has placed before you. God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary works for His Kingdom!"

Yes, God does use the ordinary for the extraordinary.  He tells us that in scripture all of the time.  We just need to start believing Him.
