As I surround myself with high profile Christians, I can't help to feel small and unimportant. Reaching virtually 1-5 people a year for Christ. (yes counting might be my first mistake) I make it my heart to teach my boys and be a helper to my husband, and I many times feel like an utter failure at even that. Funny, isn't it, what we will consider about ourselves when we don't have high profile positions.
But tell me...how many people have high profile verses ordinary or even under average lives like me? My guess is that the world is filled by amazing low profile, riding under every radar, heart full of passion for a God that saved them, people - than the handful of high profiles that get their spot on TV.
First let me give God the Glory for moving these high profile Christians on their platforms. God bless them and speak to them to share Your word and touch millions for You. Give them gifting, encourage and spur them on and fill their lives with Your annointing. Continue to be with them and their families and allow their generations to continue for years and years, sharing Your Word and Your Truth.
Next, let me give God Glory for all the Pastors running all our churches around the world. Give them strength and gifting to continue to stand in the gap for those that have not yet come to YOU. Give them resources and open doors to touch all Your children, to share truth, to close the gap on worldly division and unite us with Your oneness and word!
Finally, let me give the Glory to God for all the millions of us Lord, that do not have high profile positions and yet have a heart of passion to continue to share Your word, Your heart and Your plan with others like us that have lost hope, lost heart and lost passion. God let us understand that platforms have no merit on your calling and that favor is often given to the ones that are alone and forgotten like David who was tending sheep when the Kings servants came calling, completely forgotten by his family...God reminded them to ask for the one, they had all forgotten...
Remember, God sees you... He is drawing and calling you to be faithful in all the small things, to prepare you for even greater things...“Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.
1 Samuel 16:8-11
8 Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass in front of Samuel. But Samuel said, “The Lord has not chosen this one either.” 9 Jesse then had Shammah pass by, but Samuel said, “Nor has the Lord chosen this one.”10 Jesse had seven of his sons pass before Samuel, but Samuel said to him, “The Lord has not chosen these.” 11 So he asked Jesse, “Are these all the sons you have?”
“There is still the youngest,” Jesse answered. “He is tending the sheep.”
Samuel said, “Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives.”
