The Desire for Greatness

God has a history of using the insignificant to accomplish the impossible. – R. Exley

Moses, aged and tie-tongued. Gideon, frail and fearful. The apostles, ordinary and unschooled. Though “no threat” by worldly standards they did mighty things for God. 

As much as we may not want to admit it, truthfully inside of us is the desire for greatness. The desire to make the big play, score the winning points, be the ‘big kahuna’ if you will. The truth of the matter is God wants us to do just that, just not in the way we have in mind. To further the kingdom of God and His Righteousness in any way is to make the big play, score the winning points or be ‘the man.’ The major problem God has with us is getting us out of the way that he may work through us, that others may see His glory being revealed. Remember, it’s not about us. 

Until tomorrow…

Pastor Botts 

“For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” – Luke 18:14
