Throughout the Bible, time and again God chooses a “nobody” to do great things. There is no better example of this than David. He was the youngest of his family, performing the lowliest of jobs – a shepherd. Yet God chose him to be King of Israel because ” he was a man after God’s own heart”.
David faced Goliath with a rock and a sling when the whole Israelite army cowered in fear. David withstood Saul’s jealous persecution, twice resisting the temptation to kill Saul when he had the chance because it was not the right thing to do. He was a true man of God until he stopped fighting for God and became idle. Then temptation took hold of him and he sinned. Yet unlike Samson, who waited until the end of his life to reconcile with God, David repented and asked God’s forgiveness.
You don’t have to be rich, powerful, or brilliant for God to use you. All you have to be is humble and obedient. You will make mistakes but God will forgive you and never abandon you if you just keep pushing on to the finish.
