When the little things are used by God

There is a little object lesson in the simple reality that Psalm 117 is in the Bible. Only five lines long, this Psalm faded into insignificance compared to two Psalms later. Psalm 117 doesn’t have the poetic mastery of Psalm 119’s alphabetical arrangement of 176 verses.

Psalm 117 affirms simple truths in stunning simplicity and brevity.

Praise the LORD, all nations!
Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever.
Praise the LORD!

Some OT saint penned this simple song with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to be God’s very words to His people. So praise the LORD, all readers of this Psalm, for it is one more evidence of God’s great steadfast love and faithfulness to us that will never end.

God is famous for using the little things to accomplish his grand purposes. Be it the shortest Psalm to incite praise (Psalm 117), or the lowliest of men and women to be Gospel recipients (1 Corinthians 1:26-29). Therefore, make your boast today in the Lord (1 Corinthians 1:31). Perhaps the Lord will use the little acts of faith in your life to bring the power of the Gospel to another (example: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5).
