The Power Of Little Things

grenepages_Olufemi Babalola FRESH BREAD_The Power Of Little Things

“Let me watch it a little more.” “Let me eat it a little more.” “Let me sleep a little more.” “It is just a little time.” “It won’t cost too much; just a little money.” “I am not earning so much, the salary is little.”

These and many more are the kinds of statements that we often use to underestimate little things.

Consequently, our lives today are reflections of how we have managed little things. We are either victims or victors depending on our disposition to little things. The little time, the little money, the little space, the little prayer, the little kindness, the little idea and all other little things can influence our lives in a big way.

Little things make men little. Little things also make men great. It is all a matter of disposition.

Think about this. The seconds is the smallest unit of time but that little seconds is what has added up to you current age. By implication, your life currently is a reflection of how you have used those little seconds of your life. Your life tomorrow will also reflect how you will use the little seconds henceforth.

The Scriptures speak copiously about the power of little things.

Proverbs 6:10-11 and 24:33-34 tells us the impact of “a little sleep, a little slumber and a little folding of the arms to rest; so shall your poverty come like a prowler, and your need like an armed man.”

Paul tells us that a little yeast is what is required to raise the whole dough just as a little salt sweetens our food (1 Corinthians 5:6; Galatians 5:9). Bakers can confirm this.

Also, “dead flies putrefy the perfumer’s ointment, and cause it to give off a foul odor; so does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor” (Ecclesiastics 10:1).

This sounds like a prayer that every one of us ought to pray every day. We ought to continually ask God to “catch us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes” (Songs 2:15).

We all can point to those deleterious little habits in our lives that can destroy us. Most singles are technical virgins. They are serial rapists in the heart though they have never undressed a girl in reality. Won’t you ask God to catch for you that little fox before it destroys the tender grapes of your destiny?

It does not have to be so much; just a little can destroy. Every act of sexual immorality begins with a little thought that was not arrested immediately.

The Bible further tells us that our tongue is a little member but it can set our whole life on fire if misused (James 3:5).

Someone said, “A little thing is a little thing but a little faithfulness in a little thing is a great thing.”

Jesus said a similar thing in Luke 16:10, “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities” (NLT).

What more can I say or write of the power of little things and how we have mismanaged the little resources God brought our way. No wonder God has not answered our cry for more resources.

Andrew despised the five loaves of bread and two fishes. “But what are they among so many?” he said with disdain (John 6:9). Yet Jesus used the same little lunch pack to feed five thousand men with twelve baskets left over.

A little cake and a little water given to Elijah the prophet by the widow of Zarephath led to the miraculous refilling of the jar of oil and the jug of wheat until the famine was over.

May the Lord give us a revelation of the power of little things. May we be given fresh understanding that big things starts small and that little things can affect our lives in a big way. Amen.
