Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”
(The seven lamps represent the eyes of the Lord that search all around the world.)
Zachariah 4:10 NLT
I feel in my spirit to encourage someone who is having the humble beginnings. It can be the beginning of a family, relationship, work, business or even ministry. Things in the beginning seem to be difficult and sometimes so disappointing.
When God gives you vision, you will be the first one to believe in it before anyone else. When you take a step to exercise your vision, then God will start giving you directions on how you are supposed to live that you may fulfill your vision.
Most of us desire the crowd and support from people before we fully understand the vision that God gave us. God sometimes let us to be alone for a while; that He may prepare us and give us all important information we need to operate fully in our vision. Here is where many get disappointed, and think as if God has forgotten what He promised them at the first place.
This morning, I want to encourage you to continue walking in the vision that God has given you. The Bible says, "Where there is no vision, the people are unrestrained, But happy is he who keeps the law, Proverbs 29:18. Sometimes vision causes you to live a certain life style that will be so different from everyone else. When God start doing this in your life, you need to know that it won't be easy to live some custom of yours; but at the end of the day it will be worth the struggle.
I want to encourage you not be discouraged, focus in your vision. If you will be forced to save a lot and reduce some of your spending that you may expand your business; or save that you may build or buy a house, then do that. If you will find yourself having no friends because you have to live your life for the Lord; then do that. God will give you better friends and opportunities ahead of you if you will trust Him.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to focus in my vision in this small beginnings of mine that I may one day be where You want me to be in life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
