It is very important for us to realize that God is the initiator of any key relationship that ends up being used in HIS MISSION. We make a big mistake if we talk about ourselves and the ministry we are involved in with the personal pronoun “I”. Notice in each of the following leaders how they were used by God in significant ways:
· Genesis 6:9-22 – God called Noah to build an ark and establish a covenant with him for the whole earth.
· Genesis 12:1-3 – God called Abram to make a great nation from his seed through a covenant.
· Exodus 3:1-12 – God called Moses to deliver His people Israel from bondage in Egypt and establish His worship through a covenant.
· 1 Samuel 16:11-13 – God anointed David and established an everlasting covenant and kingdom through him.
While there are many more we could list in the Old Testament, these are primary examples of God taking the initiative in selecting and calling persons into a key relationship that would fulfill God’s plan and purpose from before the foundation of the world. Though none of these men were perfect, they responded to the call of God and allowed Him to use them in their weakness to prove the power of God. God never chooses great vessels to manifest His purpose. He chooses frail, weak vessels that are willing to submit to the great power of a great God who has great plans.
If you see yourself as unworthy and unfit for God’s great plans, then you are the kind of person God will call if you are willing to submit. Listen for HIS call and be ready to answer.
