Our Worst

Corinthians 4:7. But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that the extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us.

So often we hear “give God your best.” That’ swell and good but it’ snot complete. We are to give God our best but we are also to give God our worst. When we give our best it is often confused with our natural abilities or training. When we give God our worst it is His power that shows and not our own abilities. God is glorified through this. I was known as a singer but I avoided speaking, even to announce the title of a song. God called me to speak. It is only through the power and gifting of His Holy Spirit that enables me to speak His word to others. No matter how often I speak I alway know and feel my inadequacy yet, because I have experienced His words flow through me I am able to speak in confidence and boldness; not in my abilities but in God’s power and grace. Our question is are we willing to allow a God to use us in areas and ways we have never experienced and feel uncomfortable or maybe even a little afraid? Let’s ask God to open our hearts and minds to allow Him to use us in any way He chooses. We are His treasure but for now contained in clay jars.
