Here’s an outstanding Youtube video from the TV show, “Britain’s Got Talent.”
What makes this video so remarkable is the power of an extraordinary voice coming from a very ordinary-looking teenager who is shy and awkward and appears totally out of place on the big stage.
It reminds me that God’s power can be demonstrated through any of us–no matter how ordinary we are. My observation is that God frequently uses people, especially on the mission field, who within their own context are socially somewhat eccentric. He delights to pour out his power through anyone who is yielded to him.
We may feel very ordinary and inadequate, but it’s not about us; it’s about Jesus. Will we let God pour out his Spirit through us? Are we surrendered to him?
What if there was An Army of Ordinary People lives submitted to the King, personal ambition laid down for the cause of His Kingdom? What could God do with such a people?
