the day of small beginnings

Do not despise the day of small beginnings. For is it not like the grain of a mustard seed, the tiniest seed you can sow? But after that seed is planted, grow it not into the largest plant in the garden; a plant SO BIG that birds build their nests in the shade of its branches?

I bless your small beginnings, friend. I bless you with the ammo you need to fight off the birds of prey. Safe guard your seed and consider your calling. For is it not the despised God has chosen? Has he not said that through children and infants he will establish a stronghold against your enemies to silence the foe and the avenger?

I bless you spirit, with the infilling of God’s word to water and cultivate your garden. I bless you to know when and where and what to plant. To have eyes to see what piece of land has your name on it so that your investment might be a sure thing.

Celebrate this friend- God selected the foolish to bring shame upon those who think they are wise; likewise he selected the world’s weak to bring disgrace upon those who think they are strong. God selected the common and the cast off, whatever lacks status, so he could invalidate the claims of those who think those things are insignificant.

                                 I bless your small beginnings

I bless you dear brothers and sisters with heaven’s choice of you who are; poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith. I bless you to inherit the kingdom he promised to those love him.

            ~ Fear not little flock for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom ~

Listen to the tender endearment with which he speaks. Spirit, has he not called you servant but friend? I bless you with the intimacy of his called friendship to you. Cherish it, nurture it and watch it grow. Christ is your shepherd encircling you with his eternal love and pleasure. Settle it then. Who he is and whose you are.

I bless you spirit, with the rhema of God’s word to take root as you cultivate and meditate on it. I bless you with courage to overshadow your fears. With your sowing, a reaping will come. I bless those who sow in tears with a reaping of songs of joy. I bless you with reverberating songs so loud and full of gusto!

Do not despise small beginnings. Sing over the work of your hands. Establish them in the fear and admonition of the Lord.

             ~ And may God richly bless you, spirit, in his mighty name, amen ~

(zech 4:10, mark 4:31, psalm 8:2, 1 cor 1:27, james 2:5, luke 12:32, john 15:15, psalm 126:5)

if something lands for you as it did for me, let me know, ok?
