God And Common People
Except you read the bible you would think that the great men mention in the bible were born that way. But in reality every person in the bible that became great, or did great things for God were just common people. Moses was a great man of God. The bible says , ď And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, none equal to him in all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt.Ē That was Moses after God put His hands on him. But when God first called Moses he was shocked that God would choose him for he knew that he was inadequate for the job in and of himself. Moses begged God not to send him because of his inability to speak well. If you would read the entire bible you would see that God uses common, or ordinary people and uses them to do extraordinary things. When you see a picture of Moses holding up a stick and the Sea opens up, thatís God, not Moses. If you want to see Moses you would have to go back to the burning bush were he was trembling and trying to convince God not to send him, thatís Moses.

The Apostle Paul gives us some vital information about God, he said; ď God has chosen the foolish things of the world{ we would call it foolish to call a man who cannot talk well to go speak to a king} to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the mighty. And base, or common { people not born of Noble blood} things of the world, and things which are despised { people who are rejected by other people} has God chosen.Ē God always takes nothing and produces something, this reveals Him as God. This is His personality, His signature. Paul the great Apostle learned the art of being himself. He said, ď When I came to you, brethren, I came not with excellence of speech or of wisdom {mans wisdom} ,declaring to you the testimony of God, for I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. Just be yourself and God will find you and use you to show Himself mighty.

There was a time when God needed a Judge to Judge Israel and He looked and looked until he found a man that was from a poor family and he was least in that family. His name was Gideon. God took this man and saved a Nation. This does not mean that God cannot use people who are of Royal blood, for He used Daniel greatly. Common people are most likely not to get in Godís way, but will allow him to get the glory for they know for sure that they are not capable in and of themselves to accomplish extraordinary things for our great and mighty God. All twelve of Jesusí disciples were common people.

I hear a lot of people put down David for his act of murder and adultery. These things are clearly wrong and God punished David for this sin. But the fact is God knew that David was a murderer and an adulterer when He called him to be king. David did not know it for circumstances had not presented themselves. But God knew it, for He knows all things. Yet God call him to be king despite his humanity. If God uses anyone from the tribe of Adam they are going to have some faults, some more than others. It seems to me like with God the more messed up a person is, thatís who He is looking for. How messed up are you? Look out, you may be called to do extraordinary things for God.
