I've been reading Genesis in the mornings and what struck me is the kind of pathetic people God worked through. Look at Abram? 75 years old when called away from his father's household, no children, and his wife was barren. Not only that, but after God promised to make him a great nation, bless him, and give him the land of Canaan, he still did not trust him enough to protect his family while in Egypt. Therefore, he lies and tells Pharaoh that Sari was his sister, twice! And later, he marries Sari's maidservant to try and have offspring through her, despite God's promise of children through Sari. Then there's Jacob. The youngest brother, a mama's boy, and even worse, a liar. And yet, God chose these two, well, losers, to be blessings on earth, not only in the lands they lived, but also to future generations. Through Abram (who later became Abraham), Isaac, and Jacob came Christ. God used these non-trusting idiots to bring His son into the world to save the world. Gives you something to think about doesn't it?
So now, as I have been forced to make some decisions (that in turn have forced me to wait on God's will) I need to remember that if God could work through guys like Abraham and Jacob, He can work through me. Not only that, but he has my best in mind. I can't go wrong, even if the road it hard. How comforting is that?
