Qualification for the "Unqualified"

In this season, God is raising up those who have sat in the background thus far - those who have not sought the fame and reputation. He is raising up a people that will give Him praise - a people that will not think more highly of themselves than they ought. This is a season of Spiritual Warfare like never before. Those who were unlikely to be heard shall now speak forth the oracles of God. Be encouraged! If you seemed unqualified to men, God has qualified you in this day and hour!

1 Corinthians 1:26-28 (King James Version)

26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

He is looking for the saints who still read His Word rather than studying every new book with a catchy title. He is raising those in ministry who still spend time in prayer rather than those who seek a revival experience from the Christian television station. This is not a time to judge the book by it's cover. God is releasing power. Those who carry it in the Spirit may be those who seem most unlikely in the natural.

You may not be educated, but you're just crazy enough to believe what God says! This is your season. You may not have a mega church, but you and your three members can cast out demons and pray forth deliverance. This is your season! You may not have an expensive wardrobe with matching scarves, shoes, purses and hats, but you can touch God in a tee-shirt and pair of jeans. This is your season!

If God has given you a Word, a ministry, a gift - USE IT! Be obedient to the Father, and do not allow the judgments of men to sway you. GOD MUST GET THE GLORY in the season - NOT MEN! Now is the time for Christ to be lifted up, so that all men may be drawn unto Him!
