THE GLORY IN THE ORDINARY
God’s most powerful tools are the simplest. Consider the rod of Moses. God made a stick become a snake, then become a stick again. Perhaps he can do something with stubborn hearts and stiff-necked people.
Consider five smooth stones and an ordinary leather sling. The soldiers gasped. Goliath jeered. David swung. And God made his point. Anyone who underestimates what God can do with the ordinary has rocks in his head.
Consider the saliva and mud that became a balm for the blind. Once again, the mundane became majestic.
We can learn a lesson from the rod, the rock, and the saliva. They didn’t question God’s wisdom. God’s power is seen not through the ability of the instrument, but through its availability.
