And the remnant who have escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward and and bear fruit upward.
2 Kings 19:30
remnant stores are almost a thing of the past. These are shops that specialize in bits of cloth helpful to those who make their own clothes or need patchwork pieces for quilts. The word REMNANT has to do with bits, pieces and fragments that are left over. A good seamstress can do a lot with remnants.
God can do a lot with remnants, too. In the Bible, the word REMNANT often referred to what was left of a community following a catastrophe. After the Babylonian captivity,a remnant of Jewish people returned to the Promised Land. There by God's grace, they took root downward and bore fruit upward.
In our world today, Christians often feel they represent the remnants of godliness in our communities. But by God's grace we can take root downward and bear fruit upward. Wherever there is a remnant that serves the Lord, there is hope.
Remnant stores may be few and far between,but remnant stores are abundant among God's people. Don't worry if you're in the majority or minority. If you're popular or alone Just take root downward and God will make fruitful where you are.
No mater how wicked the world scene may appear, God always has a remnant that is faithful to Him. Sometimes that remnant is small, but God is always great.
