Have you ever had to start something from scratch?
Have you started something new and it doesn’t seem to be as exciting as you thought it was going to be? Maybe you thought you would see change much faster than you have been.
Zechariah experienced this when he was instructed by the Lord to rebuild the temple. Before the temple could be rebuilt all the rubble and debris needed to be removed. They would have spent a lot of time moving dirt from one place to another and re-establishing the foundations.
God encourages Zechariah not to despise small beginnings, Zechariah 4:10. In fact, God said He rejoices in seeing the work begin.
Despite how you may be feeling, God loves it when we listen to Him and obey especially when we don’t know how things are going to turn out.
When we embrace the small seemingly insignificant things we open ourselves up to bigger opportunities in the future.
