Bright and shining star
“No matter how small you think you are, it’s never too late for Jesus to make you into a bright and shining star and an amazing vessel for his power. So let God surprise you!” – Feb 1 – The Word Among Us (Daily Meditations)
Out of the entire meditation those were the words that stood out to me the most. Quite interesting really that you can feel you are small and don’t have anything to offer or are unable to do great things for God, but yet still Jesus can can make you into an amazing vessel. He can use you in ways you never dreamed of.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. – 2 Corinthians 4:7
Jars of Clay were definitely not the most beautiful containers of that day and that is what made them so good at storing precious things. No one would think they had anything good in them, but little did they know inside they held very precious and wonderful things. At times we can feel as though we are those jars of clay, on the outside we don’t look the best (by the way you are all beautiful people!), but inside we have a treasure stored up from God that is just waiting to be released. When God is ready he will let that treasure come to life and shine brightly.
14 You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:14-16
In God so much can be done. You can be a light to the world. Let your light shine in all that you do and bring light to everyone around you. Bring glory, honour and praise to the Lord. Put your trust in God and believe in Him.
“Father, I don’t want to place limits on your power—either in my life or in the people around me. Open my heart to see the endless possibilities that we all have as temples of your Spirit!” – Feb 1 – The Word Among Us (Daily Meditations)
Blessings on you all!
