And though your beginning was small, yet your latter end would greatly increase
Everything that God does starts small. The entire Kingdom of God works by seed, which grows up to yield a harvest. Even Jesus, when He came into the Earth, had to start as a tiny baby. The day of small beginnings is the thing that sets you up for increase.
Don’t try and start big or increase all at once. Don’t expect to go from the ghetto to the mansion in one step, or from the bottom to the top all at once. Of course this can happen, but the usual way is that God will increase you step at a time, and you will see victory over your enemies little by little (Deuteronomy 7:22)
There is great power concealed in the small things in life, because before we know it, they become big. It’s the small things that you do every day that build your success and your achievement.
What are you doing today to build the dream that you see?
Or maybe you are stalling because it seems too distant and unreachable?
If you will have respect for the small things that are within your power to do immediately, you will be surprised at how much progress you can make.
Your decision to eat vegetables and exercise only ten minutes a day will be powerful in building your healthy body and lifestyle.
Your discipline to pray and speak the Word over your life each day will mean that one day you will find yourself standing in the midst of your confession.
Your investment of love and attention into your spouse today, will build the happy relationship and family that you dream of.
People believe that their success is in the hands of another. That it is all about achieving popularity, or getting a “lucky break.”
But popularity always has an expiration date and waiting for another to recognize and validate you is soul-destroying.
Neither is it about the quality of your education, or where you came from and who you know.
It’s all about your excellence in the little things.
It’s time to build your life on purpose. It’s time to stop playing around trying to get a quick fix, a magical answer, and a feel-good experience, and to realize that your excellence in building is what will set you up for lasting fulfilment and success.
People complain that there are no jobs; yet that cannot be true since others are, at the same moment, receiving calls head hunting them for lucrative roles.
Some conclude that all men are dogs; but other women have been diligent and careful to use all their womanly skills to make a king out of their man.
Some parents complain that their kids are wild; but others train theirs with consistency and are blessed by peace in their home.
How excellent are you with what you have in your hands right now?
I know that these are tough questions, and today I am being your coach. You may think these questions are hard, but when you make adjustments in your approach and start to reap the rewards of your excellence, you will be grateful that someone laid it out plainly for you.
Whatever it is that you want to own, achieve and enjoy, start to move towards it by building your excellence in that area.
Work out what it is that they are looking for at your job in order for you to be promoted, and become that. Then celebrate every encouraging sign along the way.
Study and understand your spouse. Work with their weaknesses and invest in them. Build them up – encourage and notice them – admire and respect them.
Study the market concerning your business idea. Add a little knowledge to your overall understanding of what it will take every day.
Start to save a little every time you receive your pay and forego the coffee and the Frappuccino. Buy shares and invest and build your financial future.
Don’t let people despise your small breakthroughs that show up as you move towards your goal. You are on your way to your great latter end!
