Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Do You Feel Insignificant?

This came for me this morning and it was good for my soul. I do feel that I'm not worthy of God so many times. Wondering if he could ever use me for his Kingdom or even if I'll be that better person etc. So this came the right time.

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him- the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD- – Isaiah 11:1-2
Notice the imagery that starts this passage. There is a stump that is assumed to be dead, but a shoot comes up from it. The Scripture gives us a pattern: Sarah gives birth when she is past child bearing age, Joseph goes from the obscurity of slavery to the Egyptian Secretary of State, and an unwed teen gives birth to the Messiah in the small town of Bethlehem. Do you feel insignificant? Rejoice, for you fit the profile of the way that God blesses the earth!
