A Child shall lead Them

And a Child shall lead them

Isaiah 11:6c … “And a little child shall lead them.”(kjv)

These words came ever so clearly to my mind, Sunday morning during our worship service. While the Worship team sang their praises to God, a Brother the size of the Incredible Hulk (with a tender, teddy-bear heart of equal size) came and knelt at the altar.

The Pastor was debating whether or not He should go pray with Sam; wanting to be certain that he was following the leading of the Lord. He then sensed that another brother was to go and pray with this soul in need. As he waited to hear God’s voice, His little five-year-old daughter tapped him on the shoulder. He looked up into those innocent blue eyes as she pointed with just one teensy finger to the big teddy bear kneeling alone at the altar.

The Pastor rose to his feet and humbly went to join this man in prayer. Within seconds, another man left his pew and joined the other two men at the altar. The three prayed and wept together as the Lord ministered comfort and peace.

After the service had ended, the Pastor thanked the brother who had joined him in prayer. His reply, “ I was feeling led to go and pray with Sam, I just wasn’t sure if it was God prompting me to go, so I told the Lord that if you went, then I would go also."

The little finger pointer, went to this larger than life man with the gentle face, and with sparkling eyes and her child like smile, she stretched two little arms upward…he lovingly received her embrace! Later the Pastor had admitted to me that without that little finger from God he doubts if he would have been obedient.

Isn’t it amazing how we adults can complicate things with our constant questioning!
The heart of a child simply sees the need and expects it to be met. Oh, that we would be as little children. When that still small voice speaks… we would simply follow!

This article really touched my heart. Now, I am even more amazed at your critique of my work. This is so well done. Thank you for writing it.

It's a great message, but I was a little confused when you switched names Sam and teddy bear. At first I thought the little girl was pointing to her own brother at the altar, I thought Teddy Bear was a nickname for her sibling and the child was the first to go pray with the big man. But other than that confusion with the names, you have a great message that could be turned into a devotion with Bible reading and a prayer.
