NOTHING TO SOMETHING

“God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world—what is viewed as nothing—to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no human can boast in the presence of God” (1Cor 1:28-29). God is impartial and it doesn’t matter if you are oozing riches or you smell like you haven’t bathed in 20 years, God sees everyone the same. In the above scripture Paul reminds us that God is in the humbling business. No one nor no thing will ever be greater than Him and once we understand this fact, James 4:10 says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.” Biblical scholar John Gills said, “This is God’s usual way to lift up the meek, and exalt those that humble themselves; he lifts them from the dunghill, to set them among princes; he gives them a place, and a name in his house, better than sons and daughters; he adorns them with his grace; he clothes them with the righteousness of his Son, he grants them nearness to himself; and at last will introduce them into his kingdom and glory.”
