After creation Adam was incompatible with other animals, so he couldn’t have a suitable helper. When God set out to make for him a helper, He made Eve out of Adam’s rib. Adam called her woman because she was taken out of man. This is the secret for your success; you have what it takes to do what God requires of you. In every endeavor, before you can receive success there must first be a conception of the ideas, materials and opportunities for this success in your heart. Everything that will ever come to you is from you; from your recreated spirit; it is that which you have seen, meditated upon and believed inwardly that you attract.
The bible says; “So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: ‘This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.'” Genesis 2:20-23.
You have enough resources and what it takes to succeed. With the right perception, even the seemingly insignificant tools in your hands will bring great success. It was a shepherd’s bag that carried fives stones which David used with his sling to slay a well armed, well drilled and well protected giant (1 Samuel 17:40). A boy’s lunch feed five thousand men, besides women and children. Probably the five loaves and two fish were distributed to approximately fifteen thousand people; if you add on the women and children (John 6:9-10). When Moses felt insecure and was intimidated by the task ahead, God asked him;“What is that in your hand?” Exodus 4:2. This was a question about potential. Moses had just complained about his inadequacy; that he didn’t know how to speak and that he was unbelievable, so God showed him that he had all he ever needed for the task ahead. The rod in Moses’ hand turned into a snake, as sign that God was with him. It was the same rod that parted the red sea, struck a rock and water gushed out, with it the ten plagues that broke the back of the enemy were performed. Small and insignificant as Moses thought, this Shepherd’s rod worked wonders after it was released to God.
What do you have in your hands? It might seem small, but God wants to use it. What do you know? What do you do best? What is your potential? What difference do you make in your world? Don’t diminish your potential, give it to God and He will magnify it. Goliath was felled by a young Shepherd boy who ran to him with his pouch filled with five stones and a sling, and a young boy’s lunch fed five thousands. What do you have? Release it to God and you will be amazed at what you will supernaturally accomplish. Do not despise days of small beginnings. Do not despise your tools however small they might seem, once in the hands of God they will accomplish great exploits. A smile, a song or even a call, can be the difference between life and death in a life of a long lost friend. Recognize every good thing in you, and use it for God’ s glory. This will also make your faith effectual; “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” Philemon 6 KJV.
