The "Little People" Rule!

I am so positively, passionately, excited about this little discovery!

Almighty God is so awesome! He works in such mysterious, wonderful, awesome ways! Did you realize that a bunch of insignificant, relatively small in numbers "Little People" took on all the remaining giants in the earth, and wiped them out? Yeah that's right, the "little guy" took on the "big guy" and won! What's even better is that God authorized it!

If you'll take the time to read the first 3 or 4 chapters of Deuteronomy, you'll find the beginning of Moses' last few speeches.

In them he recounts Israel's coming and goings for 40 years in a harsh wilderness. He seems to be really rubbing in the fact that the previous generation made it to the promise land, then due to lack of faith, trust and obedience in Almighty God, and a desperate fear of the "local giants", the Anakims.

So in Chapter 2 of Deuteronomy Moses reminds the new generation of Israel that they were not allowed to go to a couple countries because they where related being descendants of Esau and Lot. Then he interjects that both of these nations who had settled years ago had to kick out giants in order to set down their roots! Lots two kids Moab and Ammon both had to kick out the Emmims and Zamzummims.

When God makes a promise He keeps it! God didn't call the greatest, most populated or strongest nation, but He called the least! The "Little People" rule! All through the Bible you can read stories of Great people, who started out as the "little person", but God used them to bring great victory!

Here are a few: Moses, Joshua, Gideon, Sampson, Samuel, David, and the list goes on and on!

So when you feel down and out, beaten and bruised, trampled and downtrodden just remember that God loves to use the "little guy", and make something great out of him!

The "Little People" Rule!

Yours for the Little Guy,
Pastor Fred
