God is in the Little Things

Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land. (Exodus 23:30, NIV)

Napoleon Bonaparte was the greatest general of his day and one of the greatest of all time. He was also an astute politician with an unconquerable will to win. His goal was to rule the world and he seemed well on his way to achieving that goal.

History records how he boasted, "Russia next, then Britain, and Napoleon shall rule the world."

When leading his army enroute to conquer Russia, one tiny snowflake fell on Napoleon, "Then another, and another, and another, and they kept on falling until
Napoleon's proud army was reeling back, broken and defeated" not by an enemy's army nor even a single shot, but by a mass of tiny snowflakes. Napoleon's response? " God almighty was too much for me."

God doesn’t need to work via earthquakes and pyrotechnics. Sometimes it is a still small voice. Sometimes it is just a snowflake.
