The Small And The Great



Today me and my husband were praying and I heard these words: "The Little Ones Will Be Great And The Great Will Disappear".

These words reminded me of the humble and the proud and also the ones who are simple, have no name, are not recognized, are not famous and are despised and put aside, the Lord will lift them up and make them known, make them great in His kingdom. The ones who think they are great, famous, wise, recognized and important will be brought down low by the Lord's hands, for He is the Greatest of us all!

Matthew 23:12 - And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.

James 4:10 - Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

Proverbs 29:23 - A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor.

Matthew 18:4 - Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

1 Corinthians 1:27-29 - But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.

I believe the Lord is already preparing the little ones for the great harvest. He is equipping them with His love, power, authority and grace for the harvest of a multitude of people that He chose for salvation.

That is why we should be accounted with the humble for the humble will be exalted by God in this age and in the age to come!

May this word bless you,

In Christ,
