MFM Daily Devotional 13 February 2023 MESSAGE
There is power in starting small. This principle is valuable in both physical and spiritual areas of life. Starting small and growing big is a journey of self-discovery, perseverance and commitment to break out of your comfort zone and commit to fulfilling your personal purpose.
The truth is that big things always come from small beginnings. Your ability to handle the small things will determine your ability to handle the big things. The Bible enjoins us not to despise the days of little beginnings (Zechariah 4:10). Also, in Luke 16: 10, the Bible says, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.”
For small things to grow big in your hand, you must conquer the spirit of inertia and procrastination. You must move from talking about an idea and just planning to taking concrete steps and tangible action. Take the step in faith and get started. No matter how small your beginning may be, start and believe God for growth, development and expansion. The journey of a million miles begins with a single step.
The seed in your hand may be small today. your talent, position, opportunities, finances may all be insignificant. Remember that a seed will produce a fruit. A fruit will produce a tree and a tree will produce a forest. I encourage you to dedicate that small thing God has placed in your hand to Him. Whatever you dedicate to Him will enjoy His blessings. Also, use what He has given you to serve Hirn and humanity.
When you use them wisely like that, they will grow big and significant. In the Parable of Faithful Servants, all the servants who traded with their talents and made profits got the blessing and commendation of the master. Only the one who kept and failed to use his talent was rebuked and condemned. Do not let the fear of taking risks or of failure rob you of your divine blessings.
Beloved, do not let that idea die. Do not wait to have everything before you start that project or business. The winning formula is to start small now and grow big.
