Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

Your fathers went down to Egypt with seventy persons, and now the Lord your God has made you as the stars of heaven in multitude. – Deut 10:22

Do not despise humble beginnings. God specializes in small starts. Jacob and his family were seventy in number when they came down to Egypt; but God made them “as the stars of heaven in multitude.”

What’s more, he caused them to prosper through the worst of times. When the rest of the world experienced a drought, they ate and were full. When their enemies were overrun by disease, they were protected. Even as Pharaoh enslaved and abused them, they prospered!

Take whatever you have, and give it as an offering to God. God can take whatever you have, and bless it beyond your wildest dreams. Do not lose hope. Though you be but little, He will make you great!


Father, I give you everything I have. I ask that You would take it and cause it to prosper. Take me as I am, and make me a Kingdom messenger for Your glory!
