God Uses the Weak to Shame the Strong

Kenya as a nation is at point where the citizenry ought to allow God to show them how he uses the weak to shame the strong.

1 Corinth. 1:26-31

“26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

Kenya politics: May God use the weak to shame the strong

We have seen more than 10 candidates offer themselves to the country to be considered for presidency.

These individuals come from a diverse socio- economic and political class.

Amongst them are those who belong to a lineage that has political clout and  billions in wealth.On the other hand we have those  who have no following and would really require to move mountains before they  get votes away from the constituencies.

Strange enough,there are those who do not feature anywhere on the opinion polls conducted to establish Kenya’s preferred presidential candidate(s). Others amongst these have not been rated anywhere above 5%. They include:

  • Hon Martha Karua
  • Prof Kiyapi
  • Hon. Peter Kenneth
  • Kamenchu
  • Hon.Musalia Mudavadi,amongst others

But guess what,the Bible clearly states in Eccl 9:11

“The race is not to the swift    or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise    or wealth to the brilliant    or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.”

Kenya Politics:May God indeed use the weak to shame the strong

It is is worth noting that some of the otherwise considered  not as  being fit for presidency are the ones who have made effort to ensure that:

  • their parties are registered and cleared by the registrar of parties well ahead of the deadline
  • they have resigned from their public offices as per the new constitution
  • they do not use tribal cards in their campaigns

In line with this,may our prayer as a nation be, that “may God once again show us as country that HIS power is supreme and that if he can use the stones to praise Him,he can also in the political sphere use the weak to shame the strong politically.”

Kenya politics: Our naked eyes cannot claim to know the power of the “weak candidates”

We ought to realize that it is only God who has the best interests of Kenya at heart.

As such we need to allow him to mold the next presidential candidate who will be used to fulfill God’s purpose for our country.

This i saw today morning through a clip of one of the many  the talent shows…. and i was amazed at how God has put treasures in each of us that can only be manifest  if we learn to Let God do HIS will  through every opportunity availed to us

To the judges this boy seemed like a nobody,they even wanted to judge him on the basis of him not having a family identity. But you know what,one doesn’t need to belong to a certain tribe of family for God to manifest his greatness.

In closing:May God Use the candidate who looks weak to shame the strong

I call upon each of you to seek God for his intervention in the coming polls.That Kenyans will not vote in leaders based on the genealogy,but rather according to their vision for this land

May we all remember that  maybe the next president might come from one of the marginalized areas.Who Knows?

Remember the “race is not for the swift,nor the battle for the strong….”

God ,our prayer is, “may you indeed use the weak to shame the strong in this land,for the glory and honor of your name”
