About the Author
The wise, the mighty, and the noble, are those that the world calls to leadership. Yet it is more often the foolish, the weak, and the base that God calls. Moses told God that he had chosen the wrong man. Gideon and Jeremiah felt the same way. The leaders of Israel marveled that Jesus' apostles were ignorant and unlearned men. When I sensed that God was calling me to be a preacher, as a poor speaker, I felt weak and unqualified for that calling. I would later learn that I was weak, but still not weak enough to be used by God. After experiencing dependency upon God and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit, I have seen the transforming power of the Word of God upon people's lives for the last forty-two years of ministry. What I discovered about preaching, I have discovered about writing. I am not a gifted, skilled, or trained writer, but God has given me a transforming message from His Word. It is the Word of God and its application that builds faith, produces fruit, and conforms us to the ultimate purpose of God the image of Christ. While the world looks for great people that stand head and shoulders above their peers, "God's eyes run to and fro throughout the entire earth to find a heart that is yielded to God". We can impact the world. We have an amazing God who chooses the barren to bring forth fruitfulness. When you discover God's secret of the barren womb, you will discover true fruitfulness just as Hannah did.
