1 Samuel 15.17
When you started out in this, you were nothing - and you knew it. Then God put you at the head of Israel - made you king over Israel.
thank you, God, that you are the creator. you make everything out of nothing, and our nothingness is definitely not an issue with you. thank you that we can be secure in you, we can be strong in you, we can be who we are in you because you make everything out of nothing, you make us everything we need to be so we can rise up to your call, be who you have always wanted us to be, live up to the identity that you have grandly written for us and by your grace do over and above what is needed so we could be generous right in our calling and overflow to others. all of this from nothing, because nothing will ever stop you from making everything. thank you, God, praise you!
