John 1:46 (KJV); And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
Greatness is not birthed out of the most obvious places or people.
In fact, God always moulds greatness out of the least expected places and people.
The life of Jesus is a testimony of this.
Nazareth was not a great city, with great men.
This prompts Nathanael in our theme scripture to ask, “Can any good come out of Nazareth?”
You may be living in a place where people ask, “Can any good come out of that district?”
You may come from a family of which people say, “Can any good come out of that household?”
The answer is yes! That very limitation is the reason God wants to use you. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:27 that God chose the foolish things of this world to shame the wise and the weak things to shame the mighty.
Don’t look at your background or history and disqualify yourself. Every time you identify the weakness in you, remember that it is God’s opportunity to prove His greatness through you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Greatness is not birthed out of the most obvious places and people. God always moulds greatness out of the least expected places and people.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for who You are to me. Thank You for choosing me and finding me worthy to be a part of Your plans and purposes. I refuse to look around me but look within me and understand that I will change the world, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
