Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

God Makes People Extraordinary

Scripture is full of instances where God has used ordinary people like us to accomplish extraordinary things. He chose a stammering Moses to lead His people out of bondage, self-serving fishermen, James and John, to lead His Church and spread the Gospel, impulsive Peter’s confession upon which to build His Church, and Paul, who spoke of a thorn in his flesh, to be the first great missionary of the Christian Church. God uses imperfect people, those whom the world considers weak and flawed, to extend His kingdom. When we allow ourselves to be used by God in whatever way He chooses, He takes our meager talents and blesses them.

Prayer: Father, thank You for the faith that You have given me so I can go about Your work. Continue to fill me with Your Spirit Who empowers me to seek ways to honor and glorify You. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
