Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.
This verse is cited in the devotional I read this evening by Charles Stanley. (I would like to link the devotional, but it is from 2009, and I can’t seem to find it in the archives on the site. Sorry.)
In it, Stanley discusses how God uses very ordinary people, people who to the world might not amount to much, for great things.
We are never beyond God’s hand of power. He can fashion us into anything He desires.
It is hard to believe, isn’t it? I know first-hand how he can do things in people’s lives that cause a bit of the shake of the head, because it could have only been God.
Why does He choose this route? So He can be glorified…plain and simple.
Never doubt His power…Moses, David, Joseph, Daniel, Ruth, etc. . .need I say more?
