For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
God of the Unlikely
“The Apostle Paul [Jewish zealot who persecuted Christians to death] was the least likely candidate in the universe to spearhead the spread of Christianity.”—Tom Steller, at the pastoral staff meeting last week.
The boy named David was an unlikely victor over the giant Goliath.
Trumpets and shouts were unlikely demolition equipment for the walls of Jericho.
An unlikely virgin girl mothered the Son of God.
Don’t rule out the unlikely. In the providence of God, likelihood is a non-factor.
