“Fear not, thou worm, I will make thee a threshing instrument with teeth.” Could any two things be in greater contrast than a “worm” and an “instrument with teeth” ?
The “worm” is delicate, bruised by a stone, crushed beneath the passing wheel ; an “instrument with teeth” can break and not be broken; it can engrave its mark upon the rock. The Mighty God can convert the one into the other.
He can take a man or a nation, who has all the “impotence” of the “worm”, and by the invigoration of His own Spirit, He can endow with “strength” by which a noble mark is left upon the history of the time.
