God Ranks Trust and Obedience Over Qualities and Abilities



God is not looking for a super human with a plethora of gifts, but one who is pliable and faithful to God’s commands and vision. Each of the patriarchs with peculiar personalities possesses different strengths and weaknesses. Abraham is a feisty man who initiates treaties with kings and leads his own military campaigns. Isaac, on the other hand is peaceable and uncombative, while Jacob is treacherous, deceitful, and stubborn. For them, God smoothens their rough edges and uses each differently to establish His kingdom.

God can use any man regardless of personality or background to reign over his kingdom if he possesses the core qualities of trust and obedience.
