Don’t Despise Small Beginnings

by Lesley Cartwright


“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin” (Zech. 4:10, NLT).

Everyone of us has a dream to leave behind a legacy of sorts for those who follow us. To achieve this we need to be dedicated and committed to a set goal. Putting pen to paper we need to work out a plan of action and move towards getting it done. Be prepared to put in the sweat and tears required to harvest the success. It’s amazing how you can achieve the impossible when you refuse to quit! Anyone can start something but can you stick with it until it is done? When we are faithful in little, God will give us the more (Luke 16:10).

Become a Risk-taker!
God wants to give us the desires of our heart, but we need to realise what it is first and then call it to account. I heard someone say that “if you don’t build your dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs”. Don’t let fear cripple you and keep you bound – become a risk taker! “A ship can only be turned once it has left the harbour.” 

Success is Certain
So I want to encourage you today to make your move and get busy with releasing your potential! Let God direct your steps! (Prov 19:21.) He will always lead you in triumph (2 Cor 2:14). Don’t despise the day of small beginnings, start with what you have in your hand and watch God turn it into plenty. He loves to see the work begin… but He also likes to see you run your full course! So stay with it! Don’t Quit!

PRAYER: Father God, thank you for your Word that says that you give me the desires of my heart, and also that you will lead me in the right plans. Today I commit these plans to you and ask that you direct me and that your favour goes with me. Help me not to fail in the day of adversity. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
