You see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. (1 Corinthians 1:26)
When God calls, He obviously does not necessarily call according to our innate abilities; He more than often calls according to our weaknesses. There are two things I do that are not natural for me: public speaking and writing. Nevertheless, these are the very things He has called me to do. I am most definitely not one of the “not many”. The reason is clear, “that no flesh should glory in His presence.”(1) When I speak or as I am writing this devotion, I am the proverbial “duck out of water.” Nevertheless, I see my calling. It is a matter of obedient faith, not talent, ability, or even giftedness. I think the key is, “not according to the flesh.” I think Zechariah may have said it best, “’Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”(2) Therefore, as you seek your calling, do not necessarily look toward your natural abilities, but look toward those areas in your life that will give God the glory.
