The seemingly small and insignificant thing, the work God has called you to do behind the scenes, that doesn’t seem to be of any worth, the Lord watches and rejoices to see the work begin.
Nothing is too small, for a tiny seed can produce a great harvest. Your step of obedience brings joy to the heart of God who watches and searches for those who will follow His will.
A small tribe of Israelites routed mighty armies and nations. For those who step out in faith, who follow God’s leading, they step out in the power of God. A small boy brought a small meal to Jesus and that small meal fed thousands.
A widow tithed two small coins and her story has been told for generations. Small faith leads to great growth and amazing accomplishments.
Do not despise the small beginnings. What seems trivial to the world, may be the mighty move that sets in motion amazing changes in your life and in those around you.
No matter how small or insignificant it may seem, be diligent to complete the task God has called you to do, for small beginnings are the beginning of remarkable things.
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin …” ~ Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)
What task do you feel God has given you? When you think of God rejoicing at your work, how does that make you feel?
“Be willing to be only a voice, heard but not seen; a mirror whose surface is lost to view, because it reflects the dazzling glory of the sun; a breeze that springs up just before daylight, and says, ‘The dawn! the dawn!’ and then dies away. Do the commonest and smallest things as beneath His eye.” — George Matheson
“…Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you… That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything.” (Mark 11:22-24, MSG).
