No One Too Small To Make A Difference
by Gilly Mathiesen

“If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria! He would cure him of his leprosy”. 2 Kings 5:3, NIV

Seeds of the Kingdom 25 September 2022 MESSAGE

The following African proverb is humorous but communicates succinctly a very important point – “If you think you are too small to make a difference, you haven’t spent the night with a mosquito.”

In the day to day run of the mill, we may feel we are not making a difference, and yet, just one sentence of faith can bring about a lot of change.

The story of Naaman is an interesting one. He is the commander of the Aramean army, but has contracted leprosy. A young girl from Israel is taken captive and becomes a servant to Naaman’s wife. She probably can’t see what a difference she can make, being far from home, in a foreign land, and most likely sold as a servant by the raiders who took her. She did not have the most ideal of circumstances, yet she did not lose her faith.

At the right moment, her one sentence of faith ultimately changed Naaman’s world, not just physically but also spiritually. What is interesting to note is that the servant girl only spoke to Naaman’s wife, who then communicated what was said to Naaman. Naaman then communicated what the servant girl said to the King of Aram. Her one sentence had a ripple effect.

The king gives Naaman permission to go to Israel to be healed, all based on the servant girl’s one sentence of faith. We are not even told her name, but we can glean from the story, that after Naaman’s trip to Israel, the servant girl no longer was the only believer in Naaman’s household, as Naaman comes to faith in the Lord while in Israel.

This would almost certainly have impacted Naaman’s household spiritually, with all members most likely becoming believers in the Lord. And the restoration of Naaman’s health meant that he was no longer having to keep a physical distance from family and friends. Many lives were impacted because of one girl’s simple sentence spoken with faith. Seeds of the Kingdom 25 September 2022

Jesus said in Matthew 17:20, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain ´Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you”. The servant girl in this story had a mustard seed of faith, and that is all that is needed according to scripture.

May you be encouraged today to speak out, knowing that just a simple statement of faith can cause a ripple effect, which may not just change one person’s world, but many.

Seeds of the Kingdom 25 September 2022 PRAYER

Dear Lord, thank You for the encouragement that Your word brings. Help me avail of every opportunity to speak a word of hope and faith to others. Thank You that I can make a difference where I am, regardless of my circumstances. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
