Dismissing Weakness

fa9db8c0924ef1edf529be2eb5501a03God can use anyone at anytime. We dismiss ourselves, but He doesn’t.

Lord my God, You have now made Your servant king in my father David’s place. Yet I am just a youth with no experience in leadership. (1 Kings 3:7)

Solomon dismissed himself…at least, in some areas. But those areas became the basis of what He trusted God to provide. Instead of using his lack as an excuse, he used it as a springboard of trusting faith.

Your servant is among Your people You have chosen, a people too numerous to be numbered or counted. So give Your servant an obedient heart to judge Your people and to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?” (1 Kings 3:8-9)

We often want to hide our weaknesses. They make us feel vulnerable and unworthy. We want to dismiss them, but when we do, we dismiss ourselves.

God wants to use what we think dismisses us, because He knows our willingness to admit them and trust Him puts us in the exact position to rely on Him to use us well, weaknesses and all!
