Moses was a baby pulled out of the river. Joseph was sold into slavery and thrown into prison. Gideon and David were the least in their fathers’ houses. Jesus was born in a stable. There’s something significant about how God sees value and destiny.
God sees what we don’t even see in ourselves. Could God have used David’s older brothers? Yes, just as He can use you or anyone else in the world. But He picked the least in the house to prove a point. He doesn’t need your success, He needs your willingness to follow Him in His plan.
There is no age limit or social status required by God to be amazingly powerful in His kingdom. He can use you anywhere, any time. You are especially useful if you feel insignificant. That usually means that you don’t have pride issues. Humility will go a lot further than head knowledge or wealth.
Your character is important to God. No matter what your “status” is, if you have a heart to know Him and the willingness to be taught, He will raise you up in ways you would never ask for. It’s God’s upside down world. The first will be last and the last will be first and the meek shall inherit the earth.
