In the eyes of God, there’s nothing called, ‘Just-a’! 🙂
Too often we are attacked by the enemy with his famous, ‘Just-a’ lines of discouragement. ‘You are just a nothing’, ‘you are just a weakling’, ‘you are just a house wife’ , ‘you are just a worthless old man’ , and frankly his list is truly endless!
But it’s amazing how God picks up the seemingly simple ‘Just a’ things and uses it marvelously for his glory!
Look at the Star. In the book of Genesis chapter 1, it seems almost like God created the star, just as a final touch up!
“He made the stars also.” Genesis 1:16
Nothing significant about this hanging in the skies. Yet, it had amazing purposes in the plan of God.
When God spoke to Abraham, he showed him the stars in the sky and said, “look at the stars….so shall your descendants be.” I almost visualise every star in the sky jumping for joy as it had a purpose in reminding God’s divine plan to Abraham!
Again, we see the seemingly insignificant star rise up and shine ever so brightly at the birth of our Lord Jesus! It was the Star that led the wise men to Christ our Lord! Isn’t it amazing how God has a plan for every little thing he has created?
In God’s dictionary there’s nothing called ‘Just-a’. Every little thing has a purpose to fulfill.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
