Big or little?
January 25, 2014

Do you sometimes feel your work for God is big? Do you sometimes feel your work for God is small? Do you also realize that God is working out his larger purposes around us and through us, and that our analysis of big or small is not the main point?

Mother Teresa once wrote: I am just a little stub of a pencil in the hand of God, who is sending a love letter to the whole world.

How simple – how beautiful. You can be that stub of a pencil. God can send his love letter through you. Every day can be a day of holy living.

On one accasion when Mother Teresa was entering Israel, the authorities asked the usual question, “Do you have any weapons to declare?” She replied, “Only my prayer books.”
What a great way to regard prayer! Not talking to ourselves, not just a quiet devotional exercise to enrich my personal relatioship with God, but war. We are engaging with God in a life-and-death battle with enemy spirit powers.
Pray fervently and boldly. It is a weapon that is effective in knocking down enemy strongholds.
