“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin …” __ Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)
The word despise means dislike, hate, look down on, or undervalue (Dictionary.com). When we despise something, we are regarding it lightly.
Do not despise the day of small beginnings! Don’t despise small things. You maybe believing God for a large business, ministry, house, or a higher position on your job, but don’t despise where you are right now. Remember, every big business, large ministry, or organization started small. As far as a higher position, no one starts at the top. Also, are you taking care of the small house while you are waiting for God to give you a bigger one? Big things usually start as small things. So it is very important for each of us to be faithful over little things.
If we do what we are expected to do, and if we are grateful for the small things and treat them as if they were big, they will grow. If we are faithful in small things, God will be able to trust us with bigger ones.
Prayer: Father God, I ask you to help me to be faithful in what You have called me to do. Help me to not despise the day of small beginnings, but to wait on You for the bigger things in Your timing. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
