“Behold also the ships which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.” James 3:4.
What a great truth and encouragement this is for us all, we may at times feel very small and insignificant, but God see’s us as a rudder that He can use to guide His church.
Our Lord still uses His twelve disciples to reach entire nations, even today, for the words that He put into their mouths is still heard throughout the whole world, and although sometimes His church seems to go off course, yet these words which were given to His disciples soon puts His church back on course, praise the Lord.
Do you remember how Jesus used a little boy’s basket which contained two fish and five loaves of bread, which He gave to His disciples, who then gave them to the multitudes for they had multiplied? Yes, through His disciples even today He feeds His church, how wonderful our God is.
Now, you may feel very small and insignificant, but if you could only see yourself as God sees you, then you would indeed see that you to can be a rudder on God’s great cruise liner, or you could see yourself with that basket which can feed multitudes.
I am also reminded of a small seed which when it falls to the ground it soon germinates and comes alive and grows up into a mighty oak. So, let us never feel that we are too small for God, for our Lord has always done great things with people who were in this world eyes, as nothing and made them something, praise the Lord.
Just see who our Lord has used in the Bible to touch nations and kingdoms from those who came from such humble beginnings. Moses, a son of a Hebrew slave, King David, from a shepherd boy, St Peter, a fisherman, and St Paul, a humble tent maker, and many more the list just goes on and on. So, you see, we must never feel that we are insignificant, for God see’s us as magnificent, praise the Lord
“For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.” 1Corinthians 1:26,27.
