Scripture at Sunrise 2.21.2017

“He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.” -Psalm 115:13

This is a word of cheer to those who are of humble station and mean estate. Our God has a very gracious consideration for those of small property, small talent, small influence, small weight. God careth for the small things in creation and even regards sparrows in their lighting upon the ground. Nothing is small to God, for He makes use of insignificant agents for the accomplishment of His purposes. Let the least among men seek of God a blessing upon his littleness, and he shall find his contracted sphere to be a happy one.

Among those who fear the Lord there are little and great. Some are babes, and others are giants. But these are all blessed. Little faith is blessed faith. Trembling hope is blessed hope. Every grace of the Holy Spirit, even though it be only in the bud, bears a blessing within it. Moreover, the Lord Jesus bought both the small and the great with the same precious blood, and He has engaged to preserve the lambs as well as the full-grown sheep. No mother overlooks her child because it is little; nay, the smaller it is, the more tenderly does she nurse it. If there be any preference with the Lord, He does not arrange them as “great and small” but as “small and great.”

Scripture at Sunrise 10.29.2012

Sunday, October 28| Pastor Steve Wainright
Morning Audio: Jesus Shows Mercy (Luke 8:26-39)
Evening Audio: Feeling Insignificant? (Judges 3:31)

“After him was Shamgar the son of Anath, who killed 600 of the Philistines with an oxgoad, and he also saved Israel.” Judges 3:31

Have you ever felt insignificant? God uses insignificant people to accomplish His purposes for His glory. Shamgar fought the good fight of faith with what he had–an oxgoad. Use what God has given you and be faithful right where you are. As you serve and give, God will give you more opportunities to serve and give. Leave the results in His hands.

If God can use Shamgar the ox farmer, He can use you as well.
