1 Corinthians 1:31, …so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

“He didn’t look like much at first. He was too fat and his head was so big his mother feared it was misshapen or damaged. He didn’t speak until he was well past two, and even then with a strange repetition that reinforced his parents’ fears. He threw a small bowling ball at his little sister and chased his first violin teacher from the house by throwing a chair at her. There was, in short, no sign, other than the patience to build card houses 14 stories high, that little child would grow up to be ‘the new Copernicus,’ proclaiming a new theory of nature, and that he would one day help send humanity lurching down the road to the atomic age with the stroke of his pen on a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939. That young man was, of course… Albert Einstein!”

The Bible says that God uses foolish things to shame the wise, and the weak to shame the strong, so that our confidence is found only in Him, and God alone receives the glory. You see, it’s not our ability that makes us useful to God; it’s our availability to be used by Him for His purpose. 1 Corinthians 1:31 tells us, …“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” I pray that Jesus Christ is the source of your confidence today, and every day!

Have a blessed day!
