God Cares for the Little Ones

In a dream vision, the Holy Spirit took me to a store. The place was not any big box store, but a smaller mom and pop style general store, similar to a large house with many rooms on the first floor. I wasn’t shopping for any item in particular, but just browsing room by room to see what was for sale and what the Holy Spirit wanted to show me.

When I went into one of the rooms further from the entrance, to my complete surprise, I saw a baby lying motionless on the floor. No parent seemed to be around and the baby appeared abandoned. When I bent over to check the baby, I realized that it was newly dead. Its flesh was only starting to stiffen in rigor mortis. The other customers in the store had no concern for the baby and walked right by.

I wondered what kind of world the Holy Spirit was showing me, one that abandoned babies and walked right by deceased ones without a qualm. Perhaps the dead baby was for sale, but I did not see a price tag on it. But then the Holy Spirit reminded me of the signs I had seen recently. New laws had been passed by state legislatures to allow for termination of a baby’s life while not only still in the womb but also during delivery and even up to 28 days after delivery. And other laws had been passed to enable very young children to receive the risky, experimental, and DNA-altering Covid vaccine. Such ungodly laws created a world in which the abominable scene that the Holy Spirit showed me could easily exist.

No one grieved for this child that lay at my feet on the store’s floor. So I took it upon myself to love and grieve for this child and to give it the respect due to a human life that had recently ended. In the depth of my mourning, I felt God’s mourning too.

And then suddenly, I felt God direct me to lay my hands on the baby’s body. He guided me to speak life into the body in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. I did so, yet at first, I felt doubt and questioned the directive I knew was from God. But then I put my own misgivings and feelings of inadequacy aside. I obeyed again and let God do His work. With my hands on the child’s flesh, I repeated the command to live in the name of Jesus a second time and then a third time.

Suddenly the baby stirred, and its flesh regained color. Not only did the baby breathe again, but it was healed of whatever condition had taken its life. I rejoiced! God had cared enough to raise this dead child whom no one had cared for. And He had used a sinner, yet a simple woman of faith, like me—who had noticed, stopped, grieved, prayed, and made herself a willing vessel of the Holy Spirit—to accomplish this miracle.

GOD CARES FOR THE LITTLE ONES! AND GOD IS CALLING HIS PEOPLE OF FAITH TO STEP UP AND DO WHAT THE WORLD MAY DEEM IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WHAT IS POSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO WALK IN ACTS 2 DISCIPLESHIP WITH THEIR EYES ON JESUS.

Scripture:

1 Kings 17:17-24 (NIV)

17 Sometime later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing. 18 She said to Elijah, “What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?”

19 “Give me your son,” Elijah replied. He took him from her arms, carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his bed. 20 Then he cried out to the Lord, “Lord my God, have you brought tragedy even on this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?” 21 Then he stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried out to the Lord, “Lord my God, let this boy’s life return to him!”

22 The Lord heard Elijah’s cry, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived. 23 Elijah picked up the child and carried him down from the room into the house. He gave him to his mother and said, “Look, your son is alive!”

24 Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know that you are a man of God and that the word of the Lord from your mouth is the truth.”

Psalm 127:3-5 (NIV)

3 Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.

Isaiah 26:9 (NIV)

9 But your dead will live, Lord;
their bodies will rise—
let those who dwell in the dust
wake up and shout for joy—
your dew is like the dew of the morning;
the earth will give birth to her dead.

Ezekiel 37:1-14 (NIV)

1 The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2 He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3 He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”

I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”

4 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. 6 I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

9 Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’” 10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.

11 Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’ 12 Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13 Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them. 14 I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’”

Matthew 10:7 (NIV)

7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Mark 9:36-37 (NIV)

36 He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

Acts 9:36-42 (NIV)

36 In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (in Greek her name is Dorcas); she was always doing good and helping the poor. 37 About that time she became sick and died, and her body was washed and placed in an upstairs room. 38 Lydda was near Joppa; so when the disciples heard that Peter was in Lydda, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Please come at once!”

39 Peter went with them, and when he arrived, he was taken upstairs to the room. All the widows stood around him, crying and showing him the robes and other clothing that Dorcas had made while she was still with them.

40 Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter she sat up. 41 He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called for the believers, especially the widows, and presented her to them alive. 42 This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.

Acts 26:8 (NIV)

8 Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead?
