Small beginnings

Small Beginnings
Zechariah 4:10 ……………who despises the day of small things?
You are probably believing God for something to come to pass in your life. If you look, you will find evidence of a small beginning. God gives you seed – perhaps only a little, tiny seed – something that causes you to hope. Rejoice over that seed. It is a sign of greater things to come.

When you despise something, you regard it lightly. You count it as nothing and do not take care of it. But if you do not take care of what God gives you, you will lose it. You need to be content during the small things. You know the Lord is the Author and the Finisher (see Hebrews 12:2). What He begins, He completes (see Philippians 1:6). Do not curse your seed by complaining or proclaiming negative things over it. Instead say, "Lord, this is only a little thing, but thank You for giving me some hope, something to hold on to. Thank You, Lord for a beginning."
