The Common Made Uncommon

I am fascinated by the story of Moses. When I read about him I don't see the Charlton Heston version. I see a common man that struggled with fear and insecurity who constantly tried to talk God out of choosing him to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. Moses made a lot of mistakes, faced rejection by the ones he was called to lead, and was always unsure of himself. What fascinates me about him is how God uses him so powerfully. Moses was just a common guy that God chose to do uncommon things through.

God has His eye on you too. The more common you may be, the more you capture His attention. God is not interested in superstars, the incredibly talented, or the gifted. He's interested in people like you and me--the person that everyone else overlooks or the one who gets chosen last; the one on the bottom of every one's list. Everyone expects the talented, good looking, and gifted people to be great, but when God shows His glory through someone like Moses, it gets their attention. God chose Moses--a man who struggled with past failures, stuck in a life of mediocrity and forgotten dreams. God even used the most uncommon part of Moses' life to display His glory to His people--his shepherd's staff. Moses faced the most powerful and best army in the known world at that time with nothing more than a stick in his hand, but that stick in Moses' hands literally destroyed the armies of Pharaoh.

What is in your hand? Nothing much, you say? Well, let God get His hands on it and you will be amazed at how He will reveal His wonders on earth through you if you will let Him.
