1 Samuel 17:33 “And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”
1 Samuel 17:42 “And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was [but] a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.”
…From yesterday…
1Corinthians 1:28 “And base things of the world, and things which are despised hath God chosen yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are “
1Corinthians 1: 29 “That no FLESH SHOULD GLORY in his presence.”
Another reason God chooses to use underdogs, as we see in the scripture above, is so that you and I can realize we are not disadvantaged! God wants us to know that in Him we can become giants no matter the odds we come up against. He didn’t keep those accounts in the Bible for fun; He kept them for you and I!
Check out these accounts, David against Goliath (1Samuel 17, read the whole chapter).
How about Moses against Pharaoh? Every time I read this story, I can’t but wonder.
Why on earth Pharaoh didn’t just give a command for Moses to be arrested and jailed or even executed?
Historians told us that as of then Egypt was the most powerful nation on earth and Pharaoh the most powerful man alive. No kingdom on earth could rival the Egyptian Empire, yet “the great Pharaoh” kept discussing with Moses rather than finish him off with just a wave of the hand.
History scholars tells us that Pharaoh was so powerful that no man dared have a contrary opinion to his. If he said the whole world should eat beans for dinner and you decided to add rice to your own in your bedroom, you’d be executed! You dared not think contrary let alone say it, yet he didn’t or couldn’t touch Moses!
Friend, what are the odds against you? Your skin colour? Your place of birth? You educational qualifications?
To be continued…
