“……. For he who is least among you all is the one who is great.” Luke 9:48
Far too many people are striving to be “bigger” in ministry. They lean to the misconception that greatness is measured by the multitude and not magnitude. However when we search the scriptures, they will reveal that when God decrees to use someone to make an impact; nothing can hinder His decision.
Therefore, for those of you who are overly concerned about the size of your ministry; or the seemingly lack of opportunities to be used of God – fret not! Remember: • The Minor Prophetical Books in the Bible are just as relevant as the Major Books. • Gideon’s army was reduced from 32,000 to 300. • The thief on the cross was a famous “no name” (so was “the woman at the well”). • Jabez – was only mentioned in one book of the Bible – but rendered a well-known prayer. • Ehud - was used greatly by the Lord (Judges 3)
And this list could continue on for a few pages.
Whatever the Lord has given to you to say or to do is vital to the success of someone. Think not that your message, your testimony, your words of encouragement or your past experiences are irrelevant. Everything that you have encountered is of significance to someone and has not happened to you by circumstance or coincidence.
One little light, in a darken room, will illuminate the entire room. Never permit the enemy to convince you that you or your ministry is immaterial or unimportant. Our adversary is very strategic and doesn’t waste time attempting to interfere with nonessentials! Therefore, if he is hounding you with discouragement, disappointment and the like – it’s only because he knows that you are “standing on the tip of an iceberg”. Therefore, YOU must realize your potential – and view his “nonsense” as a sure confirmation of God’s intended plans and purposes for your future.
So whatever message that the Lord has given unto you – speak it boldly. God’s Word is not validated by the amount of people who hear it. His Word has the ability to impact 100 or 1000… or 10. Your message… if it is from the Lord … is vital…. So boldly speak it regardless!
