Ordinary to amazing
A friend sent me a text containing the list of common items that become extraordinary in the hands of the right people:
• A baseball in most of our hands is worth about $6. A baseball in Justin Verlander’s hand with the Houston Astros is worth millions. It depends on whose hand it is in.
• A basketball in my hands is worth about $19. A basketball in the hands of LeBron James is worth $35 million. It depends on whose hands it is in.
• A tennis racket is useless in my hands. A tennis racket in Roger Federer’s hands in a Wimbledon championship is worth millions. It depends on whose hands it is in.
• A sling shot in my hands is a child’s toy. A sling shot in David’s hands is a mighty weapon. It depends on whose hands it is in.
• A rod in my hands will keep wild animals away. A rod in Mose’s hands will part the mighty Red Sea. It depends on whose hands it is in.
• Two fish and five loaves of bread in my hands are a couple of fish sandwiches. Two fish and five loaves in Jesus’s hands will feed thousands. It depend on whose hands it is in.
• Nails in my hands might produce a birdhouse. Nails in Jesus Christ’s hands will produce salvation for the entire world. It depends on whose hands it is in.
Jesus is the master of transforming the ordinary. One day he met a man who was born without sight. He had been born blind. There was no human help for him. The Bible tells us in John 9:5-6, “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When He had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the yes of the blind man with clay.” He told the man to wash off the clay. When he washed off the mud he gained his sight.
Would you give the ordinary things in your hands to God today? There is no telling what God will do with it. Just give it to Him and watch out.
