YOU ARE NOT INSIGNIFICANT – GOD HAS A GRANDIOSE PLAN FOR YOU!
Sometimes we think only the movie star personalities, the five star preachers and the likes, could be used in a grand manner. But no! No my friend!! Could you possibly be smaller than the mustard seed? Could you be smaller than the mustard seed? Could you imagine yourself being smaller than the mustard seed? It doesn’t get any smaller than the mustard seed. Yet, even for the minutest of seeds, God had a grandiose plan. For the most insignificant of creation, God has a big plan!
“If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?” Matt. 6:30
Ladies and gentlemen if God will have such a beautiful, magnificent and grandiose plan for the most insignificant of seeds? What do you expect him to think about you? You don’t tell me you are insignificant. You don’t tell me you are a nonentity. You don’t tell me of your triviality. You don’t tell me you are inconsequential. You don’t tell me you are irrelevant. You don’t tell me you are a meager. You don’t tell me you are worthless. You don’t tell me you are rather minute. You don’t tell me you are none essential.
If God despite all the other big creations, will think not just of the rather small things like the bird, or of the lily. But if he would go out of his way, to have such a magnificent plan for a seed, tell me what he is thinking about you. Meanwhile, bear in mind there are much bigger seeds around. The Bible tells us that the mustard seed is the smallest of all seeds. Yet, even for the smallest, he had a plan, not just a plan, but a beautiful plan. BRETHREN, WHEN YOU ARE A MUSTARD SEED – YOU WIN!
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” 1 Jn. 4:4
Now let me ask you, even if you view yourself as the most insignificant, the smallest, the most nonessential, just as with the mustard seed, will it be easier for you now to know that you are not counted out? Could it be that his plans for your life are just as equally beautiful as those that he has for the mustard seed?
To be continued tomorrow with the following points:
- What is your view of yourself?
- The power of self-admiration
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CHURCH AND NATION
