Thought for Today: “Going Against the Odds”
The Bible is filled with one instance after another where God calls His people to go against the odds.
Consider David and Goliath. By the worldly standards, the odds were stacked against David. Here you have a small shepherd boy with a sling shot going against a giant who had been trained in war with all the implements of war. But as they say and that which has been proven to be true, one with the Lord is a majority.
To the odds maker and Goliath, David said, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand.” (1 Samuel 17:45-46a)
You see, God delights in using what seems to be inadequate, at what appears to be insufficient to accomplish His purposes. That way the glory goes to Him.
Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:2)
So, to be a disciple we must be willing to go against the odds and face the opposition no matter what.
