Summary: Did you ever notice what the word impossible starts with, that’s right you guessed it, I’m? If we want to get to all that God has possible for us, we have to remove the I’m, the I part of the equation. And realize, a little can turn into a lot
Let Go of the "Little" you have!
As I was going through the week, this week. I came upon the old hymn, called “Little is much when God is in it.”
1. In the harvest field now ripened
There’s a work for all to do;
Hark! the voice of God is calling
To the harvest calling you.
3. Does the place you’re called to labor
Seem too small and little known?
It is great if God is in it,
And He’ll not forget His own.
5. When the conflict here is ended
And our race on earth is run,
He will say, if we are faithful,
"Welcome home, My child well done!"
Little is much when God is in it!
Labor not for wealth or fame.
There’s a crown and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus’ Name.
As I listen to it over many times, it really got me thinking. About how little time, we as Christians, Gods Sons and Daughters really give to God.
Is it just me, or have you noticed how little time there is now a days.
I’m sure you’ve heard more than one person say, boy, where has this year gone?
And that’s the truth of it , isn’t it?
Where has the time gone, so much to do, so little time to do it in.
Technology has gone totally crazy, new gadgets come on the market before we have even figured out the stuff, the old ones can do.
The phone companies let you do early upgrades on your 2 yr. agreements, because they can’t wait, to get to your next 2 yr agreement.
Next thing you know, you’ve had a cell phone for 20 yrs. And never fully fulfilled one agreement.
Everything is affected by the amount of time we have and give, to our families and friends and especially to the Lord.
On most of our calling packages, we want the bells and whistles and most importantly unlimited minutes.
With God, we have unlimited access, but choose to limit the time we give and spend with Him,
We come to church, or maybe give God 2-3 hrs. out of a 168 hr. week, but yet expect amazing results and blessings for the time we do spend.
If there ever was a minimum investment, with maximum results, that would be it!
God gives so much to us, and in comparison we give so little in return!
Makes you think twice, about the saying, the more you give, the more you get!
As we think about what lies ahead for us, the trials, testing, and tasks we face, both in our church and personal lives,
often we become enamored with the daily things, and that’s just what they are, things!
They come and they go and sooner or later, everyone comes to the realization that, this to shall soon pass and the sooner you give it over to God and get out of the way, the sooner it does!
Call it what you want, I call it drama and Gods people, really shouldn’t have so much drama, but you see
The accuser will use whatever He can, to keep you occupied with life, so you will forget what matters the most,
Do you notice the key word here, you become occupied, you will this, you can do that, you, you, you.
Enough already, with what were capable of, for most of us, what were capable of has got us where we are in life.
And if that was where everyone wanted to be, more people would walk around saying, “it’s a Wonderful Life”
Thing of it is, did you ever notice how many unhappy people there are in the world.
They don’t like the way they look, or the clothes they have, or the car they drive, etc. etc. etc.
Happiness, is not found in things.
We become disheartened, because sometimes feeling we have little to offer and what lies ahead is too great.
But God will use our little in a great way if we will let Him.
If we are willing to put our little into Gods hands, its not limited to our capabilities anymore,
Its not limited at all, when we place what we have into the hands of the one who doesn’t even have the word impossible, in His vocabulary!
Did you ever notice what the word impossible starts with, that’s right you guessed it, I’m?
If we want to get to all that God has possible for us, we have to remove the I’m, the I part of the equation.
And realize, a little can turn into a lot, when God is in the mix!
2 Kings 4:1&2 Msg.
1. One day the wife of a man from the guild of prophets called out to Elisha, "Your servant my husband is dead. You well know what a good man he was, devoted to God. And now the man to whom he was in debt is on his way to collect by taking my two children as slaves."
