One Small Stone


David had faith that God could use a small thing to conquer a big enemy.

He believed that God could use a small stone placed in the hand of a young boy to change the momentum of a critical battle.

“Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground.” 1 Samuel 17:49 NIV

It is not the size of what is in your hand but the size of the God in your heart.

God has chosen you.
He walks with you.

You can fearlessly face the giant before you because the God within you can change the momentum of the battle with one small stone.

You already have what you need, step out and use it.

Don’t place your faith in what you have. Place your faith in God.

He will use the small thing in your hand to do the big thing you have been praying for.

What small thing has God placed in your hand?

What is God asking you to do with it?

What is stopping you from being obedient?

Everyday Endeavors 

  
One of the most beautiful things you can do for yourself and for those around you is to strip down your relationship with God to daily offerings of worship in your everyday endeavors. 

Making the small mundane things that you do every day like making breakfast, doing the dishes, driving to school, being at work and offering them to God as moments of gratitude.

Doing homework , housework, or career work and offering it to God to bless, fills your silent moments with joy and purpose.

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1 MSG‬‬

You often ask God:
“How do you want to use my life?” 
And He answers: 

“Today.”I want to use your today.  


“I want to use your today to have heaven break through to earth and to infuse My presence into the smallest of things.”

The very best of offerings to God can be the very smallest of them. 

Moments of monotony.

Offerings of  unseen simplicity. 

Little altars of normal and boring and
nonimportant can become a precious gifts to an in-the-moment relationship building God. 

Don’t get caught up in the world’s view of important because God’s definition of important is a daily relationship with you. 

You. 

Your life and all it’s nonapplause worthy moments. 

When you make your everyday endeavors an offering to God, you will find yourself enjoying the abundant life He has promised you. 

Friday’s Faithfulness

“The one who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and the one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.” (Luke 16:10 NET)

Stay faithful in the small things.

Do what you do.

Don’t worry about others are doing.

Don’t wonder about where others are going.

Be faithful to what God has given you to do where you are.

Do your best.

Love faithfully.

Finish what you start.

It is the small things that build a good life.

Stay faithful.

Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. (1 Samuel 17:49 NIV)

David did not have faith in the small stone he got from his pouch.

He had faith that God could use a small thing to conquer the giant before him.

He believed that God could use a small stone placed in the hand of a young boy to change the momentum of a critical battle.

He believed in God.
He fought with faith.

What small thing has God already placed in your hand?

Place your faith in God then fight.

He will use the small thing he has placed in your hand to do the big thing you have been praying for.

Small Things

It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. (Mark 4:31 NIV)

What is like the smallest of seeds?

Jesus said the Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed.

You may underestimate small things, but God never does.

He knows the all big things come from small things.

He knows that it is the little things that sabotage our faith or feed it, seal our joy or steal it.

He knows that a seed, even the smallest of all seeds, has within it the potential to grow hundreds of times it’s original size. He also knows that the seed can replicate itself and make more seeds that will grow hundreds of times their original size.

Don’t despise the small things.
God doesn’t.

In fact, when you begin to see the small things in your life the way God does, you begin to see why he always comes back to them: they are important.

Small things are the seeds of life.

They are also the seeds of death.

Which will you sow today?
