God has the ability to take those known to the world as broken and restores them, as well as is they are of low estate to raise them up and be counted for his kingdom. Paul spoke how he was the least of all saint’s , yet chosen to be graced with a mission to take the word out to the Gentiles (unbelievers). “For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of jesus Christ for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ”.(Ephesians 3:1-3,7,8).
In the eyes of God it is the whosoever that accepts Christ and his teachings that are shown to be of the house of Israel and were not chose because of being many in number, but were the fewest of all people! Just as the Israelites were in bondage to Phar’-oah, we too are in bondage to many things we need to be saved from such as drug and alcohol addictions, or any type of prisons of our soul we need to be healed from! “For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Phar-‘aoh king of Egypt”.(Deuteronomy 7:6-8).
Even today if one chooses to be a servant of christ it is written in the example we’re given of the broken branch of the olive tree. The olive tree represents Christ and if we turn from our sin which causes us to be as a broken branch from the tree that gives us life and even though we are separated we can be grafted back into the body of Christ which the tree represents. For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again”.(Romans 11:21-23).
“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
