God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things, but it is God who makes the difference.  He doesn’t take delight in a man’s strength, but delights in the one who is keenly aware of his need for God’s grace. That is something we learn in the early chapters of Exodus involving the life of Moses.  As someone who was raised in the palace of Pharaoh, Moses was the adopted son of the Pharaoh’s daughter and a prince of Egypt.  We would say that he came from extraordinary privilege.  But as divine providence would have it, there came a point in Moses’ life when he walked away from it all, and by faith he refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing instead to be afflicted with the people of God than to enjoy the temporary pleasures of sin.
