Making wise the simple: in Sudan education is the hope. The nation is not founded on Christian principles so people put all their hope into overcoming poverty but getting an education and then a good job. We know better…
Jesusjust wants a surrendered heart and ANY of us can do that! As you study the scriptures you see the men and women God chose:
o Gideon – coward
o Elisha – farmer
o David – Shepard
o Nehemiah – cupbearer
o Peter, James & John –fishermen
o Esther – orphaned girl
o Mary Magdalene – demon-possessed woman
o Priscilla & Aquilla– tent makers
Remember 1 Corinthians 1:26-29, mark it down and read it over later. God is not looking for the woman with the best resume and qualifications to fulfill His will.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. ~ 2 Chronicles 16:9
Availability is worth more than aptitude
Smarts and skills are surpassed by true surrender
Jesuswants your love and loyalty more than your quickness and qualifications.
You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, for your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep your precepts. ~ Psalm 119:98-100
Whatdo you need wisdom or understanding for today?
Be teachable, expect God to speak, go to the Word with confidence and watch what He does
For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are. Nothing in all creation can hide from him. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes. This is the God to whom we must explain all that we have done. ~ Hebrews 4:12-13
