"Isaiah 55:8- For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord."
David and Goliath - David was the last of 8 sons of Jesse and the smallest.
Gideon- God reduced Gideon's army down from 22,000 to 300 men to fight 180,000 Midianites. Judges 6-8- Gideon was the weakest and least. Judges 6:15.
Joshua- Walking around Jericho? Joshua 6:1-27. The walls were to the sky. Deut. 9:1.
Paul- For they say, "His letters are weighty and strong, but his bodily presence is weak and his speech of not account." (2 Cor. 10:10)
Why is salvation not earned by being good, bought, or by works?
Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace you have been saved through faith. and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast."
