Don't Despise Small Beginnings

Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.
— Zechariah 4:10

By Nina Roach

God has given born again believers the measure of faith. Anything that we need to accomplish in the earth will be with the amount of faith that we have stored up in our hearts. The moment you and I were born again we all started with the same amount of faith.

The more we hear the Word of God our faith comes and increases within our spirits. The God kind of faith is needed for the “things” that we hope for, the “things” that we can not see—the impossible things. We were all born with natural faith that causes us to believe the things that we see. Not so with the God kind of faith. With God’s faith our natural senses are not needed. Only our beliefs in His Word—His ability to get the job done.

We stand upon the Word of God only no matter what it looks or sounds like naturally.

When there are deficits in our health, emotions, finances, opportunities, marriages, and families faith is required. We can not resolve spiritual problems with natural resources. This is why we continually see so many unresolved issues all around us. Believe it not or the issues are spiritual too. All humanity is broken without God. And the more we leave Him out of our lives the problems that we face will exist and increase.

Do not ever despise small measures of faith—your trust and belief in God’s promises and abilities to get His results to the problems that you may be challenged with or the problems that others are facing.

Use your measure of faith today, for the Lord rejoices to see His work of faith begin in and through you.

Decree It: I will not despise small beginnings of my faith. I have the measure of faith—a personal trust and belief in God’s promises and abilities to get His results to every problem that I will face throughout my life. My Father and I rejoice to see His work of faith begin in and through me. Together we will accomplish great and mighty things in the earth.
