God uses the simple things!

“And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast {it} in thither; and the iron did swim.” II Kings 6:6 (KJV)

Some translations of the bible says a peace of Wood instead of a stick, and according to the laws of physic, we know that iron doesn’t float and stick doesn’t sink. Elisha could have commanded the ax to float, he could have commanded it in God’s name, but he didn’t, he only cut a stick and threw it where the ax fell.

What do I understand with this?

Well, it shows me that when God wants to use something or someone, He doesn’t need great or big ones either; He uses the simple things to show that the power it is not in the instrument used but in God Himself.

What do I want to say with that?

What I means is that many of us, evangelicals, we want to preach, we feel like evangelizing but then we think we can’t because we don’t have enough wisdom, or that maybe we don’t know as much as other preachers and pastors. But God wants to use you in the way you are, because the power isn’t in you but in Him.

Open your mouth; preaching doesn’t consist in citing the whole bible from the top of your memory, neither being so theological, eschatological.
There are many people among us who needs to hear a simple “Jesus loves you”, “He didn’t leave you.”

Hey! Don’t be ashamed! Don’t be shy, leave shyness on the side, as you open your mouth to speak about Jesus, the Holy Spirit will fill and enable you to do so, but you got to open your mouth!

He counts on you, you who says “that you can’t, that you aren’t able”… It’s you who He wants to use.
