GOD STILL CHOOSES THE WEAK
by David Wilkerson
[May 19, 1931 – April 27, 2011]
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;
and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which
are mighty” (1 Corinthians 1:27).
God still chooses the weak to show forth His strength. Have you ever grieved
over weakness? Have you felt insignificant, frail and useless to God? Have you
looked upon others who seem so strong, so perfect, and thought of yourself in
comparison as too sinful, too dull to be used of God? God is not looking for
spiritual giants, but rather for ordinary saints with childlike faith who have
lost all confidence in the flesh.
God will confound the strong and wise by anointing as His instruments those who
are considered weak and foolish. The Lord will bypass those who lean on the arm
of flesh, who trust in their talents, their knowledge, their background, their
family reputation. Instead, He will raise up the brokenhearted, the weak and
the weary. He will pour on them a spirit of praise and a baptism of love. He
will show them His greatness, His faithfulness, His covenants, and they will
become strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
Is there a spirit in you that urges you on to new and higher places in the
Lord? Is there a fire for God ignited within? Do you feel a drawing to a
renewed faith and trust in God? Be thankful! That is the call of Jesus Christ
His promises to us are great and precious. “Oh how great is thy goodness,
which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou has wrought for
them that trust in thee before the sons of men! Thou shalt hide them in the
secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in
a pavilion from the strife of tongues” (Psalm 31:19-20).
“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered
into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love
Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth
all things, yea, the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).
