From the desk of Steve Shultz:
You may ask, "Are you kidding, Steve? Are you really accepting that, 'God is not looking for strong people to help Him accomplish His work? The truth is that the Lord is looking for people who are weak enough to be used?'"
Let me answer you this way, and then refer you to Bobby Conner, a true father in the spirit.
Do I (Steve) really believe that the Lord is looking for people who are weak enough to be used? Yes, I do! I really, REALLY DO! My life is "case in point!"
But don't look at my life. Look at your life and read here what Bobby Conner has to say!
By the way, on this, the 4th of July, the entire Elijah List staff would like to wish all our readers a Happy Independence Day...and we'd like to give a special SHOUT OUT to those who are actively serving in the Military or who have EVER SERVED in the Military! We thank you, men and women, of the Armed Services, who continue to help preserve our freedoms in the United States of America.

As Believers, we are instructed to live our daily lives with true goals, aims, and divine purpose (see Ephesians 5:14-18). We cannot achieve this unless we walk in God's grace.
What is the key to experiencing God's grace? Embracing our weakness!
God is not looking for strong people to help Him accomplish His work. The truth is that the Lord is looking for people who are weak enough to be used. We must remember that His strength is made perfect in our weakness (see 2 Corinthians 12:9). The key to experiencing supernatural liberating strength is personal weakness.
Understand that personal weakness does not mean weak character or faulty Biblical knowledge. We are to be pure and holy vessels of honor for God's service. On the contrary, God is looking for a people who have come to the place where they have lost confidence in their fleshly power to accomplish the work of the Spirit. Only when we embrace the weakness of ourselves apart from Christ can we become strong and "graced" to accomplish things for the true advancing of God's glorious Kingdom.
This truth is clearly displayed in the story found in Psalm 107:23-28, which describes the strong, seaworthy sailors who made their living upon the high seas. One day, however, the Lord raised up a stormy wind that blew away every last ounce of their self-confidence. They found themselves at their wit's end and cried out for the Lord's grace and help. Although they were skilled and experienced, the winds and waves of the sea convinced them of their dependence upon God.
Have you encountered the winds of change in your life? If not, you can be confident they are on their way!
Christ Jesus declares that "Without Me you can accomplish nothing!" (John 15:5). This word "nothing" means completely, totally nothing. It truly means less than nothing. Ours is a life of unspeakable joy when we come to the place where we understand that only the work of the Spirit can advance the Kingdom of God.
In other words, absolutely nothing you have ever done in the past and nothing you could ever accomplish in the future will match the unparalleled joy of letting Jesus live His life through you! God has exactly fitted for each of us a unique walk of grace. As we yield our wills and ways to the Holy Spirit's control, we begin to experience this walk of grace. Through yielding and embracing our personal weakness, we experience the abundant grace that enables us to accomplish all that God has assigned for us to do (see Philippians 4:13).
Never forget it is not by our might and power, but by His Spirit, that great exploits are accomplished for the King (see Zechariah 4:6).
