Responsive, Not Strong

And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.
‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭36:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭32:8-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

He takes no pleasure in the strength of a horse or in human might. No, the LORD’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭147:10-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.
‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Is God looking for STRONG, QUALIFIED men and women? No. Our strength and qualifications are inconsequential when God does the IMPOSSIBLE through us. Consider the first disciples. Consider the early church and the Book of Acts. They had a Message and they had the Spirit of God. Rather than look to your qualifications, look at how God is making you a willing vessel and giving you a responsive heart to carry His Message to the world!
