Why God used a small plant when he talked to Moses
Our food were in small portions. Our shoes were small because my mother has to stretched the months of usage, for she has eight children to buy one after the other.
We have a small sets of clothes. Most of those were hand me downs. So when I went to school I felt I was the smallest of all, not because of my physical being but because I have nothing compared to my classmates. In those times, the classrooms were ranked as to section 1 to n, 1 being the students with most high in grades.
My mother was happy because I was in section 1 from grades 1 to 6. My father was not surprised. He had expected that from me, his eldest daughter second only to his favorite son.
And so, when my career was in bloom, I started to accumulate big stuff. My house was big for a family of four.
My line of clothes were large enough that for months I don’t have to repeat the same set of clothes. The same with my bags and shoes. And the same went for my whole family.
At the height of my career, my pride went high too. My thoughts were, I did all these: I studied hard, worked hard and these are my rewards from God.
But God has a different path for me to take. Gone is my career, and so with my lines of clothes, bags and shoes.
God introduced me to small things again. God wanted me to see the glory in being small.
24By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
When Jesus Christ stripped himself of His Godliness, and became man, He set the example of the humblest act of all.
6Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
God wanted Moses to act small when Moses delivered God’s message to His people.
30And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sinai an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
Being small is reachable. Approachable too.
In fact even Satan recognized this. He picked the smallest fruit bearing tree to tempt for easy access to Eve.
6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
In my lifetime, God uses Brother Eliseo Soriano, Presiding Minister Member – Church of God International to make me understand the wisdom of being small as exemplified by him and Brother Daniel Razon.
Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.
