Love for the unnoticed heart.
God calls the weak and the weary, the unschooled and the ordinary people of His world. This shames those who are mighty and confounds those who are wise in their own eyes.
It was Leonard Ravenhill who taught, "God does not call the equipped but equips the called."
In the Lord's economy it is the people who no-one imagines anything of that will do things that no-one can imagine.
The Lord is raising up a new generation of the lost, the least, the last and the lonely - these rascals and the world's leftovers love Him with all the love their unnoticed hearts can muster. For it was the Man of Sorrows who died for the men of sorrow. ~ Michael Cartwright
Conviction of weakness is the path to humility, and a doorstep to the good Lord's temple.
... not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. (1 Corinthians 1:26-29)
Rejoice in your weaknesses for you are fit for the kingdom of God.
