Foolish things…

Jesus glorified

Just as Moses lifted up the tree with a snake on it in the desert, and there was healing

So was the Son of Man lifted on the cross and there was healing

Healing for our infirmities

Healing for the hurting  and for the nations

As Jesus is lifted up He will draw men to himself

People from all nations and from all races

People from all walks of life

Jesus we lift your name

 

Foolish things…

Gideon – a great man of war?

David – a shephard boy as a king?

Moses – a fugitive as a great leader and a brillant administrator

Elijah – and after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. A still small voice?

Nehemiah – “What they are building—even a fox climbing up on it would break down their wall of stones!”

Gideon – “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their Hand… ” too many?

 

Small beginnings…

Do not despise the day of small beginnings

Seemingly weak people

Seemingly insignificant people

God often shows His power by using the small and insignificant things

Not big numbers

He uses what others consider “sily” or “simple”

The wooden cross

Where our saviour was hung

Now a symbol of salvation and redemption

Blood shed , souls saved

From destruction

His blood santifies

Praise be to God our Lord

Psalms 9:9

The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in the times of trouble

 

Simple things… foolish things…

Psalm 8:2 (ESV)

 Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.

 

The praises from the mouths of babes

Nursing babies as it were

Their sound causing meyhem in the enemies camp!

No wonder He wants to destroy the unborn

Their praises raise as incense to the most high God

As war rages on against the righteous in Christ

Yet

The praises of nursing babies raise to our God

Cause confusion in the enemy’s camp

Simple and powerful praise

Victory in Jesus

Amen
