God Uses The Lives Of Individuals...


God works those that stay close to God


God works through persons,
Through individual souls.

We might feel a sense of awe when we see the large committees.
The great organizations; Huge armies and big corporations.
Huge Churches and large families...

As we see these huge big majorities,
we can be made to become small. Insignificant.

I want to share a dynamic that has always humbled my heart;
God always works through the individual soul.
When men or women drift away from the Lord,
Then the individual man counts, but little
 and confidence
Is placed in big majorities and large majorities.

Remember the tower of Babel;
It was built by a huge national committee.
Who Said
"Let US build US a city and a tower"

Men are always depending on large!
But our history shows that God always uses the lives
of individuals!


We are in a good place as we seek strength and refuge under
His everlasting arms!

We can awake with His fresh dew upon our faces!
Take this time and season to restore what was lost.
Mobility that is confined, physical activity.
 And creativity that needs a jump start! 

God has and will continue to use you!
God secretly inspires some soul who will outwit the wise.

God will bring to pass and carry out all He has purposed.
In your life and the lives of those around you.
We are all living the dreams of the seed beds of those
Generations who have gone before us!
But each seed must grow and produce its own fruit!
Dear ones you are all a part of a divine plan...

God works through individual persons...

The body is made up of many different parts.

So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and individually members of one another.
Romans 12:5

  1. Oh, sweet Roxy, this is just what I needed today. Our church is growing by leaps and bounds and I feel lost in it. Sometimes I isolate myself but in the bigness it's easy to feel isolated and insignificant. Thank you for reminding me that God has purpose for all of us and it is found in the secret place where He restores our soul.

  5. Such great truth, Roxy! God uses the small and the insignificant among us.
    Makes me think of this: "For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are,…" ~1 Corinthians 1: 26-28
    Thank you for being such an encouragement!
    God bless you richly, sweet friend!
