Your Quiet In The Storm Today
Start Big with Small Things
“But Jesus said, “There is no need to dismiss them. You give them supper.” “All we have are five loaves of bread and two fish,” they said. Jesus said, “Bring them here”. – Matthew 14:16-18 (MSG)
We all want to do great things this Year. One of the things that we must do as we pursue greatness is to offer up whatever skill, ability, talent or gift we have to the Lord and trust Him to bless and multiply it.
Stop waiting for “everything to fall in place”. What do you have right now? Offer it to God. Use whatever ‘little’ ability you have immediately.
The Year has a way of running away from us. So we must all decide now to bring out our abilities no matter how ‘ordinary’ they seem.
Consider Job 8:7-Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase…
There is nothing wrong with starting small, but there is a lot wrong with not starting at all. Stop giving yourself reasons to justify laziness, procrastination, weaknesses, lethargy and complacency.
Get up and get going with the little in your hand. Take that job, write that exam, start that business, write that book, make those plans now, submit that proposal, record that song…don’t wait till every resource is available.
Trust God and step out in faith and see what God will do in 2016 with your 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. Take time and study this story in detail.
Do not forget that the ‘little’ you have was given by God and He knows how to increase it…1 Corinthians 3:6-I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
In Jesus Name I declare I trust God for great increase and advance this year. I renounce all lethargy, procrastination and complacency. I plant my gift in faith and I will experience great increase in all my endeavours this year. Amen.
