A Minority With God
Is A Majority

"There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them." [Jos. 1:5-6]

How important are you? Can you really make a difference in your world? Just how many people does it take to make an impact anyway?

Bible in Forest With Sunlight
A minority with God is a majority.

Perhaps you have heard the old saying, "One person with God is a majority." There is a lot of overlooked truth in that simple statement. Often we have bought into the deception that we need a lot of people, a lot of support, a majority opinion, or whatever, in order to do something great and have an impact. Nonsense. God often delights in taking the unimportant [in the eyes of the world] or the minority and winning major victories.

Moses and Aaron stood up to the greatest empire in the world at that time [and they often didn't have the support of their own people]. Joshua led a comparatively small ex-slave, ill-trained nation against the most advanced military machines of his time. Gideon took 300 men against over 100,000. Adino the Eznite when 800 to 1 - and he was the one standing at the end of the day. Go ahead, search your Bible. Look for how many times God used the minority to shake the earth [don't forget the many times the line of Christ when through the second born son instead of the first born;)]. A minority with God can do anything.

So what is it that God wants you to do? The will of God actually isn't that difficult. Read Eph. 6 and especially note verse 6. The will of God is doing everything He puts in front of you with your whole heart knowing that in it you are serving Christ. It is never compromising the Truth/Standards of God's Word in our lives and doing what we can to teach and see those standards upheld in our sphere of influence. [This takes wisdom and doesn't mean attacking other people. I suspect many enemies of Christ would be won to Him if we as Christian people treated them with respect - without compromise - instead of condemning.]

For those of you who like the bottom line, here it is:

"He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?" [Micah 6:8]

Follow this with your whole heart and you will have a greater impact that you may ever know this side of eternity.
