GOD CHOOSES THE LITTLE TO DO GREAT THINGS

GOD CHOOSES THE LITTLE TO DO GREAT THINGS

Micah 5:2 (NKJV) But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.

I am always amazed how God chooses the small things to make such an impact in our world.  He chose Bethlehem, one of the smallest cities, to bring the Messiah into the world.  He chose Israel, one of the smallest nations, to bring the message of the Gospel to the world.  And He chooses us, little nobodies, to share His message of salvation to the world.

Sometimes I am blown away when I think of who we are, “nobodies,” and yet God uses us to do big things for people.  You might say, “Well Pastor, God might be using you, but He is not using me.”  No, every one of us are used by God.  We just need to see the field that God wants us to plant in, and start sowing!

Too often, we think that we have to reach everyone, but to reach the world we need to reach one.  I always wonder, who was the person that shared the message of salvation with Billy Graham?  Did that person ever think that God would use him to bring one to Christ that would reach so many?

Many times, we look at our few loaves and fishes, but it is when we put these loaves and fishes in the Master’s hand that we see the multitude of blessings that they make.  So do not look at your lack; look at God’s ability!  Look at how God can take a hand like yours to bring a cold cup of water to someone in need.  Look at how God can take that dollar, and use it to reach way beyond what you ever thought or imagined.

Today, look to Jesus, the One born in little Bethlehem, and see what He accomplished!  Then see that through Him, you can do great things for His Kingdom.  Together, with Him at the wheel, He will take you into places that you never thought you would go.  God and you; what a team!

Confession: My Jesus was born into one of the smallest cities that there is, and I believe, today, that God can take little me, and use me to be a true blessing to others.
