The Obedient Yes That Changes History

When God is beckoning to you and there are specifics to the
call, you can know that your obedient ‘yes’ to God will lead to outcomes that
actually change the course of history. Your story will be changed and so will
those that God gives you to serve.

 

Later in Corinth, Paul would address the whole problem of
people who thought that personal might and power were essential to God’s work.
By comparing themselves to others, much of the church was missing out on the
importance of their own high calling to be on mission with Jesus.


 

1 Corinthians 1:

26 Brothers
and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were
wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble
birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to
shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God
chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things
that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one
may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in
Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness,
holiness, and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let
the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

 

 

How can you be so sure that you are the wrong person for
God’s purposes? Can we not see that our own sense of inadequacy is gold to God?
How else can God receive the glory He deserves if we think that we are the ones
that should get the attention?

 

You may not like the sound of your own voice, but who is to
say that God might not want to train you in His choir? Are you teachable and
can you learn to listen?

 

I always tell those that sing with me in worship, you need
to get comfortable with the voice God has given you and learn to enjoy hearing
yourself use it. That requires humility and an appreciation for the opportunity
to make a clear presentation. You cannot shyly sing and hope no-one is
listening.
