Do you feel small and insignificant today? Well be encouraged!

Reading Psalm 68 and verses 24-27 struck me
……Verse 27 “There is the little tribe of Benjamin, leading them….

What struck me this morning in the great assembly of Israel, in the great congregation, the Little tribe of Benjamin led them.   It hit me how it was a little tribe that led the great congregation.

Straight away I got other pictures that came to mind, that of a small tug boat that leads a huge ship safely into harbour, and of the story of the Lion and Mouse where the lion was caught in ropes but the mouse ate the lions ropes around him, setting him free.
“God chose the weak things of the world to shame the wise”

You may feel you are little, you may feel you are small and what effect could you have, but like that of Gideon with only a small number of warriors, came up again defeated thousands in the Lord.
Like David in the eyes of Goliath and yet David overcame Goliath.  Like yeast in a loaf of bread and how it infiltrates everything, so too can the little things in God work its way through effecting those around you.

So it was an encouragement to me as God can use small things to lead many, God can use the little things and the weak things of this world to change a nation.  So don’t think you are small and can be of little or no effect, its not the truth.
