To small a thing….

Over the past week or so, God has really gripped my heart with the Scripture from Isaiah 49. Our Pastor spoke about it last Wednesday at our youth group, but it ad come up in my quiet time before. It is such a beautiful passage of Scripture that I decided I absolutely must share it with all of you… So here it is:

 

Before I was born, the LORD called me… He said to me “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will display my splendor. It is to small a thing for you to be my servant to restore the tribes of Jacob, and bring back those of Israel I have kept. I will also make you a light for the Gentiles, that you  may bring My salvation to the ends of the earth. I will keep you and make you to be a covenant for the people, to say to the captives: ‘Come out’ and to those in the darkness ‘Be FREE!!!”. Isaiah 49:1,3,6,8-9

 

Isn’t that awesome! There God is telling us that it is too small a thing to keep His message bottled up and to ourselves. He is commanding us to GO and spread the Good News of the Gospel! I feel like the same thing applies here with SOS. We can’t just keep our passion stuck here to our friends and family, rather we must go to share with our city, state, and possibly nation!

 

God has shown us that we cannot limit ourselves to “too small a thing”. Rather we must dream in a God-sized way. The Lord has shown us this truth over and over again. He can take the smallest spark and burst it into a wild fire of fervor that no one can contain!!!

 

And as for the last part of those verses, I love where it says: “say to the captives come out and to those in the darkness be free”!!! That is exactly was God has called us to do. To beckon our sisters out of darkness and allow them to truly be free in the hope of the Gospel!!!! Please join us in our fight for freedom!
