This verse stood out for me:
Micah 5:7 Then the remnant left in Israel[c]
will take their place among the nations.
They will be like dew sent by the Lord
or like rain falling on the grass,
which no one can hold back
and no one can restrain.
A "remnant" means: a small remaining quantity of something.
When we think of a remnant we think of something leftover or that is not really worth anything because it's so small. Bethlehem was the tiny village and became the birthplace of our Saviour.
Then in Psalm 135:8
He destroyed the firstborn in each Egyptian home,
both people and animals.
Moses should have been destroyed but he was a "remnant" left behind and God used him in remarkable ways.
When we are thinking that we are too insignificant to be used, we need to remember that God uses all the remnants and no "scrap" is ever wasted.
