None Inferior

I could hardly believe my ears the other day when I heard that one of the most anointed ladies I know was about to drop out of a local ministry. Asked why, she said, "I no longer know what I'm doing here. New people have come in who are so educated, and I'm just a housewife. I never went beyond the 12th grade."

Just a housewife??!! Peter and John were "just fishermen." Matthew was "just a tax collector." The point is the deception which is involved.

Is your sleep disturbed because Satan has somehow tricked you into thinking that education is a criteria for being used by God, when in reality it has nothing to do with being a channel for God's power?

God tells us, "Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? "...And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God" (I Corinthians 1:20 and 2:4-5, NKJV).

Please don't misunderstand me. Education has its place, if that's what God has called you to, but inferiority from lack of education does NOT have a place when it comes to working the works of God. He has called us to humility, not inferiority. NO ONE is inferior in His Kingdom. We ALL have the chance and the commission to be channels of His faith, His power, and His miracle-working love!

God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, thank You that knowledge of You comes not through man's wisdom, but through Your Spirit and Your power flowing through us. Forgive me for accepting any of Satan's lies of inferiority. Help me not to compare myself to anyone or to allow anyone to keep me from doing what I know is of You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
