Our Daily Manna September 2, 2017: ODM devotional – God Does Not Call The Qualified!

Topic: God Does Not Call The Qualified! [Saturday 2 September, 2017]

(Romans 8:28-33; 2 Corinthians 3:5).

Today’s scripture Vs 30 says: “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.” The word “JUSTIFIED” can also mean “QUALIFIED.” So this scripture can also read thus: “Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also qualified: and whom he qualified, them he also glorified.” Wonderful! That’s why God has never called a man/woman who was very good or very qualified to do His work. I saac was a day dreamer, Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper and denied Christ, David had an affair and tried to cover it up with murder, Noah got drunk. Elisha was suicidal, Jonah ran from God, Paul wasa murderer, and he was too religious.

Timothy had too many ulcers, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was gossip, Martha was a worrier, Thomas wasa doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, Rahab was a prostitute, Samson liked prostites. Isaiah preached naked for three years. John the Baptist ate bugs and had second thoughts about the very Messiah he baptized.

Jeremiah was too emotional, Moses stuttered, Zachaeus was too short, Abraham was old and Lazarus was dead. When Jesus Christ called the 12, most of them were not even educated. Yet, Jesus equipped them and they turned the world upside down. God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called! When Paul wrote to the Corinthians, he told them: “not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.”

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong, God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nought things that are. Those whom God calls, He quipps. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called!
