“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 NLT)
If you sense God calling to do something, but based on current circumstances the situation seems impossible, first look around at all the ‘impossible’ miracles in God’s creation. Then turn to His word and remind yourself of the impossible miracles He performed throughout the ages while remembering that He is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Then ask yourself if anyone today has ever done anything similar before? It doesn’t matter if you know them or not because access to information today is as easy as your computer or phone.
Our life is not meant to be lived alone; relationships are the foundation from which we build on the Word. Often people will say they are too old, too young, too broke, too tired, or too busy to do something they really want or need to do. Look harder, if you think you can you will, if you think you can’t, you won’t. Are you limiting what God wants to do through your life because your mind is saying ‘can’t’. Maybe there are other ways of accomplishing the task at hand besides the ones you have already tried or heard of.
History has proven over and over again that God working through men and women of faith who believe in His word and not necessarily in what they can see in the natural are key components to creating anything new. If you want something different or have a burn in your heart for a particular cause, find successful Godly people to learn from. They don’t necessarily have to have done exactly what you’re expecting to do, but they will have had experiences and can speak wisdom into your situation to assist your journey.
Creating new associations is like making new friends: you don’t have to lose the old friends, you just have to be willing to go places, and do things where you are likely to at least hear the conversations of people who are already experiencing the sort of lifestyle God is calling you into. If getting out is an issue based on your current situation, then you can find books and recorded teachings as a way to start learning new ways of approaching situations you haven’t previously been through – always keep God’s Word in first place for your ‘mentoring’ though. Our life is not meant to be lived alone; relationships are the foundation from which we build on the Word and it’s these small things repeated consistently that produce the biggest return in the shortest amount of time. Miracles happen when we take action, no matter how small!
