YOU ARE PRECIOUS. ONLY BE AVAILABLE

Can you imagine yourself as a super-hero, and you are now being compassed by more than a thousand of men who are coming against only you in battle?! What will you do? What weapon will you employ?

Let me suggest- a hand grenade; a rocket launcher, a machine gun, any other weapons of mass destruction (WMD). So was Samson- a bible hero- faced with more than a thousand of men in battle against only him. See the story in Judges 15 vs. 9-16. What weapon did he use? The jawbone of an ass. Incredible! How many men did he kill? A thousand men! Absolutely incredible! The jawbone of an ass! What can it do against ten men let alone a thousand men?! In fact, what can it do against even two men? So, what happened to this jawbone? How come it achieved this great fit of a killing a thousand men?

Let me state for you a great fact in life that you must note- THE MIGHTINESS OF ANY WEAPON TO MAKE AN IMPACT DOES NOT DEPEND ON THE BIGNESS OF THE WEAPON, BUT ON THE GREATNESS OF THE HAND THAT HOLDS THE WEAPON!

Did you get that?

In every endeavor you are pursuing in life, picture yourself as an ordinary vessel in the hands of a great God. Your success and fruitfulness will not depend on how big you are, but on the greatness of He that holds you in his hands. Even though you look like a mere jawbone of an ass-a mere skeleton, He will use you to slay a thousand men.

So, your greatest duty in life is not to try to be big, but to be available for God to use. What He will do with you is dependent on His spirit and His grace, not on your intellect, academic attainments, or business acumen.

So, my word to you is- you are precious in God’s hands. Only be continually available to Him
