God Chooses Ordinary People

A young woman greets the sunrise from a hilltop

And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth.—Luke 1:39-40 (KJB)

God often chooses unlikely people for His work. You might feel too old, like Elizabeth, or not special enough, like Mary, but the fact is God does incredible things through ordinary people. The secret is, when God chooses you, you must be ready to answer His call.

Today's Prayer:

Merciful Father, I long for my soul to glorify You.
