Pleasant Stone Devotional Meditation: May 8

"A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time" ~ Isaiah 60:22

We have already said there are no little things with God. He cares about every little thing as though it were not small. And if there are no small things with God, surely there are no small, insignificant people with Him.

Not long ago, I [Eugenia Price, the author] was with an outstandingly capable and successful woman just minutes before she walked like a trusting child into a personal relationship with her new Saviour, Jesus Christ. But before she made the glorious transaction, she looked at me and asked: "How do you expect me to believe God cares about one bit of protoplasm like me?"

Just one or two words about Jesus as He hung on the Cross and her heart melted. She already wanted Him. Her need was great. As was mine. But when one is for the first time aware of God as a Person who loves, one is at the same moment struck with the appalling thought that a God who could create the macrocosm and the microcosm could possibly care about one "little one."

Only a look inside the heart that broke on Calvary can convince our hearts. But one look does convince us. And here is a "blue stone" whose every facet holds a promise that He not only cares, but cares enough to make good, creative use of each one of us. Especially the "little ones" among us.

God has had a marvelous plan for your life from the moment He conceived you in His mind. A plan especially for you. One no-one else can complete. Only you. here is a promise to lay hold of with great expectation. "... I the Lord will hasten it in his time." Knowing Him, we know He is never late or early. And He does have a plan for each one of our lives, if those lives are in Christ.

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
