Let’s just admit it, sometimes God asks us to do weird things, like to randomly stop and say something very odd to a total stranger, and usually we don’t get to know why He asked us to do it. Do we do these things when He asks us to? I’ve heard stories from people about them asking God to prove He cares about them in the next five minutes, and in that time a random stranger walks up and says something like, “I don’t know why I’m supposed to say this, but do you know God loves you?” Do we question God’s random requests? Do we try to rationalize the situation away? Do we try to make excuses for why it’s all silly and it’s not really God asking, when we know it’s Him and we just don’t want to do it? Do we find ourselves unfit for the task?
Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
2 Corinthians 12:9a And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”
Who is He looking for to accomplish His requests? Do we need to have it all together in order to make a difference? What does sufficient grace mean? Does He ever pick the wrong person for a task? How can we help ourselves be reminded of His sufficient grace and His strength made perfect in our weakness?
