Apostle Grace Lubgea
1 Corinthians 1:28 (AMP); God has selected [for His purpose] the insignificant (base) things of the world, and the things that are despised and treated with contempt, [even] the things that are nothing, so that He might reduce to nothing the things that are.
It is in the nature of God to appear to men in the things most familiar to them.
Why is this so?
The Bible says that God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33). For this reason, He sometimes manifests to men through things they can easily relate with based on their individual level of understanding Him.
One of the aspects of this familiarity can be seen from our theme scripture.
The Bible says that God has selected the insignificant things of the world for His purpose.
While the traditions of this fallen world have convinced some men that God only manifests in the most spectacular things (which are unfamiliar), the truth is that God also reveals Himself in simplicity. He does this so that every man is able to see Him.
God does not expect you to be on the lookout for complicated and strange experiences as the only way He can minister to you.
It is for this reason that we as believers don’t overlook any experience, word, or person.
Because He is the God of the familiar, He can manifest in the least expected ways. He will speak through your sister, boss, spouse or any set of circumstances as long as your spirit is humble enough to hear Him.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this truth. Thank you because in seeking You, I know how to always find You. I never overlook anything in my path because I understand the God of the familiar. This wisdom continually illuminates my path. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
