Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin… Zechariah 4:10 NLT
God knows how to ready us to do great things. As we learn to trust in Him, He arms us with what we need to discover His plans for the future.
Sometimes, we become weary when life shifts from normal routines and we're required to move toward unfamiliar places. But God handles the fear of new beginnings. He helps us recognize what needs to be known and manages steps as we learn to persevere.
As we prayerfully seek Him, He gives wisdom and direction for our lives. He opens our eyes in truth. He speaks when we take time to listen and readies our hearts for His guiding.
God helps us focus on His presence and remember His timing is not our own. He reveals His will when He’s ready to move us ahead. He prepares us to step in faith and remember better days are coming…
The Bible says, “Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.”
We must focus on how far we've come and find reason to remember; even the smallest footsteps will lead us toward greater things, if we keep on going and allow God to complete His good work in us.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love. Help us focus on what’s to come and continue to trust in You. We’re so grateful You have plans for our days. We will remain faithful and patiently wait to be grown by You. Help us remember why “little things will make big things happen“, if we take small steps and remain on the path that leads to YOU. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
