“For who has despised the day of small things? For these seven rejoice to see The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.””
Zerubbabel was the man God had called to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem. But this wasn’t done in a night.
Zerubbabel rebuilding the temple.
I think we can all relate to Zerubbabel. God calls us to do something and we wonder how will it ever be done? Sometimes things can seem so big to us. But temples are not built in a night, and neither are disciples, or families, or careers or callings.
Today I was listening to Mark Zeeman tell his testimony on how the Lord called him to be a missionary in Hungary, Budapest. The main point he wanted to bring up is how God used many small days and seemingly small things to guide and lead him to the point of being a missionary. I was inspired to recall and record for my readers how God did the same thing in my life. I would like to start off as Mark did, with an apologia for the abundance of details. It may seem like some of these details don’t matter, but God used a ton of small things to bring me to the current big thing of my life. So, even though it might seem like this post is going to drag on I want you to understand how God worked in my life and hopefully you will be encouraged to see God working in your life. You may not even see it, but God is working every day in your life through small things. I also want to point out though, that small bad choices eventually have big bad consequences. You can make a bunch of small good choices for God, or you can make a bunch of small bad choices for yourself… and you will reap what you sow of both of them.
