Sunday Stillness – What is very small with no king but great power?

Sunday Stillness – What is very small with no king but has great power?

In order to answer that question we need to read Proverbs 30:24-27

Sketch from Adam’s Animals by Kimberley Payne. Sketch by Janis Cox.

Four things on earth are small,
    yet they are extremely wise:
 Ants are creatures of little strength,
    yet they store up their food in the summer;
hyraxes are creatures of little power,
    yet they make their home in the crags;
locusts have no king,
    yet they advance together in ranks;

They may be small without a king but locusts have great power.  Joel 2 is called an Army of locusts.

With a noise like that of chariots, they leap over the mountaintops. Like a crackling fire consuming stubble, like a mighty army draw up for battle (Joel 2:5, NIV).

That is a mighty army – and we, as God’s army, could work like that; small feeble people working together for the glory of God. The only difference I can see is that we serve a mighty God – our Lord and King – Jesus.
