As unusual as it is to hear a piano "play itself," I was listening now for a spiritual connection. A single sound...only one...unmistakenly singular...my heart began to speak to my mind about the power in single circumstances, the impact of the number one: one sunrise after a storm, one phone call that changes your world, one smile that scatters your insignificance, one son that bears your name, one daughter that has your eyes, one vow that changes your destiny, one light that shatters the darkness, one song that lifts your heart, one voice that excites your inner-being, one sermon that brings eternity near, one friend that knows your tears, one dog that sleeps at your feet, one bird that sings the morning into day, one shooting star that responds to a dream, one prayer that releases heaven, one snake that brought the curse...one encounter with Christ.
One encounter with Christ: one woman caught in the very act of adultery, heard one sentence "...neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more." One dead friend responded to One loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth." One distraught mother received freedom for her demonized daughter. One night time seeker asked how to be born again. One healed leper out of 10 returned to thank the One who had made him whole. One felon on a cross asked the innocent crucified for mercy and was granted paradise. One empty tomb that has the power to forever change every one.
There is no insignificance in the power of one, it is in the "One" that many have come to salvation. The call of God on your life is the power of your soul to participate in His grand design; do not ignore it, become the one that loudly declares, "Here I am, I am only one, but send me Lord. I am one."....you may be only one, but you are one...never underestimate the power of one.
