Don’t Be Afraid to Start Small!
“Though your beginning was small, yet your latter end shall greatly increase.” Job 8:7
Don’t be afraid to start small or start over again because small beginnings with faith and humility will always lead to success. Remember, a task is not complete or accomplished until the end is seen. There is something attached to the end of a thing. The ending is very important. We should understand that the Lord sees the end from the beginning, and until we see in God’s perspective, we will not live life to its fullest capacity. Lacking a clear vision of the end from the beginning may lead to being disappointed.
Job, a rare man in the scriptures, was met with sudden destruction and degradation, but he confessed’ “though my beginning was small, my latter end would greatly increase.” He never limits himself to his immediate situation but holds on firmly to what the Lord Brings out in the latter scene. A small beginning never means a small ending. Do not accept the lie and deception of the devil and what your situation poses to you.
Zechariah 14:7 says, “But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.”
Can you see a small beginning of life in business, academics, and your endeavors? Or are you seeing a proportionate small ending? Then you do not see well, shine your eyes. The eyes of your understanding need to be enlightened by the Spirit of the Lord. Because your small beginning might seem like trouble, but great deliverance shall come at the end. Proverbs 4:18 says, “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more unto the perfect day.”
The Lord is the beginning and the ending; never see a small ending in Him even though your beginning is small. Be like the man Job. It was further testified in the same book of Job that the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning. He first believed his latter end should greatly increase. Believe this for your life too. Amen. Job 42:12 says, “And the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning. And he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 yokes of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.”
1. Oh Lord, I thank you because you have overcome the world on my behalf.
2. Lord, I receive your plans and perspective for my life, and I live by them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
