“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…Zechariah 4:10 “
This post was going to be about being chosen by the Lord in spite of the mess in our lives. The topic was changed once God repeated the above verse to me more than once. For when God brings a verse to remembrance it is because He wants you to pay attention to what He is saying.
I looked up what the book of Zechariah was about and bible.org gave me the best explanation. Although I have read it before I needed to clear it up for myself and anyone reading todays post what this book was centered around. Zechariah was to comfort the people who had returned from exile and were uncertain about their future. This brought me to the thought that every future has a beginning.
My small beginning was accepting Jesus Christ. It is difficult to begin anything , especially when you are uncertain about your future or how your decision will affect it. Let me remind you today that God knows what is ahead. He wants to comfort you today and tell you not to worry. If He has placed a dream in your heart then go for it!He wants you to know that a small start can lead to something bigger. So what are you thinking of starting? I cannot begin to imagine what God has placed in your heart to start this season, but whatever it is I am sure you will be okay.
