Seeing More

“The words of Amos, who was among the herdsmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.”- Amos 1:1

 

Amos was a shepherd that God called to speak His Word to the people of Judah and Israel. Amos was not a famous man or even a well-educated man. The Word tells us that Amos was a shepherd, a person that charge in life was to take care of, protect, and guide sheep. In the big scheme of things, a really insignificant job really. But in God’s eyes what mankind sees as insignificant God uses for prep-work.

Sometimes when we see a ourselves, we think we will always be the person that we are. But God sees us as so much more.

God called Amos not because he was highly educated, was famous, or rich, God called Amos because he was willing. Willing to do that which God called him to do in God’s Name.

In our own lives we often think that we have to achieve this great act, have a better education, or get a better status, when all God is asking from us is to be willing.

Today! Today look at who you are, with all your flaws, imperfections, and insecurities. But after taking a long look at the reflection looking back at you be sure to be willing to become the person that God is calling you to.
