It’s amazing what can be birth from a small seed: apple trees, oak trees, and beautiful willows. What about the babies that are born prematurely? Perhaps at one point they could fit into the palm of your hand because they were born early, but now they are taller than you and eating enough for two. The first page of a book can turn into a masterpiece.
It’s amazing what God can do with the small things and we cannot despise small beginnings:
It all begins with one step. We can complete a 5K with one step. We finish the website by simply starting. When we honor and complete to the small things, God can turn them into major things. It’s the consistency to the blog, that turns into a devotional. It’s the prayer call with one person that turns into the revival. It’s preaching to the one that can lead to the salvation of the 99.
Look at what David accomplished with simply a sling and five smooth stones. David was able to kill Goliath with a slingshot and a stone. That small weapon, that one moment in time led David to the throne and set the stage for Christ the Savior. Christ came through the line of David by way of the Holy Spirit.
As you launch out, as you start the journey: no matter what it may be: school, weight loss, or a relationship with the Lord, stay the course and keep pressing forward. And while you are managing the small, you can hold tight to this promise:
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much...” Matthew 25:23
It’s in the small things that greatness is born.
Peace and Blessings
