Little Things

If it’s bigger, it must be better. If it’s expensive, it also must be better. The entire manufacturing process thinks bigger is better and more desirable. It doesn’t make any difference, whether it’s housing, cars, toys, or jewels. This is man’s thinking, but what does God think about it? Is a bigger ego better than humility? Not what I can see from God’s Word.

God seems to be interested in the unseen little things. Usually, things proceeding from the heart. Not as it appears in the eyes of others, but in His eyes. The ones that have X-Ray vision and the penetrating discernment that get to the real motive behind the actions.

  • God sees when a sparrow falls to the ground (Matthew 10:29). 
  • Elijah’s servant saw one cloud the size of a man’s fist in the sky, and the Prophet knew the three-year famine was over. It was about to rain.
  • David used one of five small stones to defeat the giant, Goliath ( I Samuel 17:40 ff).
  • Our Lord was born in the little town of Bethlehem, predicted in Micah 5:2.

God observes those little thoughts and the intents of man’s heart. No one knows those dreams but God. If a man has faith the size of a mustard seed (smaller than a pinhead), he can move mountains. 

It’s the little things that fascinate God. The Lord is interested in our faith. What do we believe God could do through us if we had the confidence? The Lord asked Jeremiah if anything was too hard for God (32:27). The answer is always no. But the Lord needs a willing servant to accomplish the impossible. He needs us to show those who are weaker in the faith that He can and will work through ordinary people.

This is where you and I come into the picture. God wants to use us. Whatever His mission is, He needs a human instrument to accomplish it. However, it must be an individual who trusts God. He uses people who are close to Him to do big things. Those who hear His small, quiet voice and follow directions. It is those He will use. Are we willing and ready? God is.
