Our Scripture reading today is 1 Corinthians 1:26-29.
Verse 26-27, "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 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;"
A very interesting description of who God will use in His service.  It seems to me that the weaker we are, the more impact we can have.  Admitting that we cannot do something for God on our own is the first place to start.  We can learn all the terms and be educated beyond our years, but without the LORD; we can do nothing.  John 15:5, "I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
It is important that we are weak in and of ourselves, but mighty through God.  2 Corinthians 10:4, "(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)".  Humility goes along a way in helping us to see victory and grow spiritually.  James 4:6, "But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble."  It is humbling to think that the King of Kings will work in and through us.
To God be the glory!
