Big Impact through Obedience

It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world. -Chaos Theory

The phrase “The Butterfly Effect” refers to the idea that the single flap of a butterfly’s wings change the initial conditions of the system enough to cause large-scale phenomena (hurricanes and such) since any variation in the initial conditions is vastly magnified with each repetition of a wing flap. And every flap of every butterfly wing in the world continually changes those conditions.

I find this as an encouraging example in nature of how small influences of the world can eventually greatly impact the world. If a single flap of a butterfly wing can possibly cause a hurricane on the other side of the world; then how much more of an impact on the world would one obedient man of God make. God just needs one man to stand in the gap. This is encouraging to me, hope it is for you.

“The people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy and mistreat the alien, denying them justice. “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none. So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign LORD.” – Ezekiel 22:29-31
