Sticks and Stones

Use what you have. Stop worrying about what you don’t have.

If God can use sticks and stones, he can use you, right now.

Stones:

David faced Goliath with 5 smooth stones in 1Samuel 17. Can you throw a stone?

Reject the false belief that dramatic results require unusual skills and resources. There’s nothing special about picking up and throwing rocks. David used simple skills and meager resources to get a big job done.

What’s special about the David/Goliath story is the faith David exhibited.

Faith isn’t about resources or guaranteed results.

Sticks:

Moses told God, “Suppose they say, ‘The Lord has not appeared to him?’”

God asked, “What’s in your hand?”

Moses was holding a walking stick in Exodus 4. God said, “Throw it on the ground.” It turned into a snake. How hard is it to throw a stick on the ground?

Our issue is trusting God to use what we have.

You’re too worried about what you don’t have. I wonder what God could do with what you have?

One Comment on “Sticks and Stones”


  1. I appreciate these thoughts very much .. consumerism constantly focuses us toward something we don’t yet have (usually in order to sell us that missing thing) While God asks us to use what we have and allow the results amplification to be His..
