JOYFUL BLESSINGS 04
God delights much in smallness. Time and time again we read these stories in Scripture, don't we? He uses the least of these, the sick, the outcast, the small, a stable-born baby, all for His greater plan. Even so today. You do not need the most social influence, political power, or simply the loudest voice in the room to make the biggest difference. Wherever you are here and now, look around for a moment. Your corner matters and you are there for purpose! God is always at work, especially beyond what we might see in the present. I remind myself of this daily - now let's encourage and remember together!
"But you, O Bethlehem, are only a small village among the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel, whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf." Micah 5:2
Let's pray together.
Dear God, You delight much in smallness. Your wonder working is on full display. Thank You for this Old Testament prophecy, pointing to the coming of Jesus. Every promise is fulfilled in Him, even so today. May I always keep this precious truth close at heart and mind. Amen.
Blessing for little ones:
Dear God, I may be little here today, but You are big in every way! Jesus was born a small baby in a stable, but through Him alone my salvation is able! Amen.
