Ever feel inadequate?
Like a nobody?
The least of all people?
The worst possible candidate for anything amazing??
Well, guess what? I have great news for you!
I was reading my Bible this morning and I noticed something that I had never noticed before.
It was in the Book of Deuteronomy and it was said in the context of Israel driving out other nations, as God commanded them. It’s in Deuteronomy 7 and it says this:
I found that very encouraging. Because think about it, God chose the least of all peoples! The least qualified. The ‘least significant.’ The nobodies.
Do you ever feel that way?
Well God chose the Israelites– ‘the least of all peoples.’
And despite the fact that the Israelites were the ‘least of all peoples,’ we are told in the verse before (7:6) that God had chosen them to be a ‘special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
God chose the least of all people to be His most special treasure!!
The humble, the lowly, the poor, have a special place in God’s heart. God says many times in His Word, that He is against the proud but on the side of the humble.
He loves you, despite how others may see you!
“But because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 7:8)
Finally, when God declares that He hasn’t chosen to love the Israelites because of what they had to offer. He says that they are the ‘least of all peoples,’ at least in terms of population. He says He has chosen them ‘because the LORD loves them.’
Look, it’s not about what you can bring to the table. God doesn’t need anything we have. It’s who He is!
AND HE LOVES YOU LIKE CRAZY!!
It is because of who God is, that He has chosen you! It is because of His character that you are a ‘chosen generation and a royal priesthood.’ It’s His crazy love for you!
Not what you have to offer Him.
Not only that, but He chooses these ‘nobodies’ to be somebodies in His kingdom. He allows us lowly people, to be a part of His magnificent work! AMAZING!
Princess, do you feel unqualified, undeserving, and inadequate?
Like a nobody?
As it turns out, God tends to choose nobodies. And makes them into somebodies.
Just be prepared to be obedient to His calling for you. And do it!
Speaking of which… I announced awhile ago that I had started an Etsy shop. I just wanted to let y’all know I didn’t give up on it. I am currently in the process of making more products before releasing any. But if you have a moment, I could really use your help! I posted some quick surveys, asking what you would like to see coming from my shop. (They’re here) If you wouldn’t mind, I would love it if you could take those/send some ideas, to see how I can best encourage and serve y’all. I would really appreciate it! ❤️
Have a wonderful day, my friend! 🥰
