What a powerful reminder that God uses small and seemingly insignificant things to accomplish His plans and purposes. John the Baptist may have been seen as a vagabond, but God chose him to introduce the Messiah and to declare the coming of the Holy Spirit.
It’s easy to feel small and inadequate in the face of big challenges, but this passage reminds us that God can use anyone who is willing to serve Him. We don’t need to be influential or gifted in order to make a difference. All we need is a willingness to obey and a desire to follow God’s plan for our lives.
As the passage from 1 Corinthians reminds us, God chooses the foolish and the weak things of the world to confound the wise and the strong. This is a humbling thought, but it’s also a hopeful one. No matter how small or insignificant we may feel, we can trust that God has a plan for us and that He can use us in a powerful way.
So if you’re feeling small or insignificant today, take heart. God can use you to do great things if you’re willing to follow Him. Don’t be afraid to step out in faith and trust that He will guide you every step of the way.
