This week I have heard this statement or something similar in different ways from different voices. God has my attention. And I am obeying His voice.

You see, God has put a few things in my heart to do that seem impossible. Yet I know, they only seem that way. Nothing is impossible with God. Therefore, He encourages me to take the first step. To start where I am, to do what I can, with what I have.

The day of small beginnings. That’s how God refers to it. No one really likes the days of small beginnings. They are hard work. It is often without help. At times it is with no encouragement and little budget. Nevertheless, we must take that first step.

Zechariah 4:10 says; Do not despise the day of small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin.

Do you remember when your child took their first step? How exciting was that! You cheered them on, that is what God does for us when we take that first step, when we do not despise the day of small beginnings.

First steps are often frightening but they are always without fail, necessary.

A glorious journey begins with one step
