Good morning, Mighty Woman of God.  I pray that today's message will be a blessing to you.  And that you are blessed and highly favored by our Lord Jesus Christ and that you prosper in all that you do, as you seek after Him.

Well, we're still in the Book of Proverbs but I'm going to post something that was a blessing to me, from Our Daily Bread, reading that I do daily.

Solomon, who wrote Psalm 72, asked God for "an abundance of grain  . . . on the top of the mountains," to characterize his reign as King.  If grain on the mountain is so unusual, what is Solomon suggesting?  That God's power can produce results in even the most unpromising soil?

Perhaps you think of yourself as a little person, with very little to bring to the kingdom.  Take courage: God can produce an abundant harvest through you.  This is one of the ironies of faith:  God uses the insignificant to accomplish the great.  Not many of us are wise or noble; most of us are anonymous and far from extraordinary.  Yet all of us can be used.  And contrary to what we might think, it is because of our weakness that we can be used by God (1 Cor. 1:27-29; 2Cor. 12:10).

It is possible to be too big or proud for God to use, but we can never be too little.  "Out of weakness" we are "made strong" (Heb. 11:34).  By God's great power, we can do all that He has called us to do.

Pray:  Lord, You work through such common things, those of us with flaws and weaknesses.  We are in awe of Your power and humbled by Your choice of us.  Our hearts long to be faithful to You.
