Weather Report From Heaven: Sunny and bright, with an abundance of light and lots of singing and rejoicing.
Scripture- “So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace.”- Romans 11:5
Insight: Throughout the Bible, God always uses a remnant, a small group of His people, to save the day. God delights in those followers of His who do not shy away from impossible odds, but step up and agree to be used by God in ways that glorify God’s power through their courage and willingness to be used by Him. David fighting Goliath when everyone else was cowering was a good example as was Gideon, when God kept pairing his army down in size, until only a remnant remained in order to gain an unlikely military victory.
But probably my favorite story is of Joseph, whose brothers had sold him into slavery, thinking they had gotten rid of him once and for all. But God certainly had a much bigger plan for Joseph’s life than anyone, including himself. could have imagined. Joseph succinctly communicates this in Genesis 45:7 when he says: “But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance.” God used Joseph as His remnant to feed His people in Egypt and keep His plan alive from their eventual exodus out of Egypt. Our Country and our World are going through difficult times and God may be preparing His people again to be the remnant, the ones who will save the day because of their faithfulness and trust in Him. Will you be ready if God calls you to be remnant?
