Greater Is Coming
It is important for us to remember it is not where we start that makes the biggest difference, but it is where we end up that counts the most. If we all had a choice to start at the top or at the bottom, many of us would choose to start at the top, because it looks more prestigious, and it just seems to make more sense to start at the top. The truth of the matter is we learn more and can make better decisions when we start at the bottom, and work our way to the top. When people start at the top they cannot fully appreciate the journey because they have not really been on one. It can feel the same way with God at times, when we feel like we are at the bottom, and there is no movement in our lives at all.
The Scripture reminds us that, even though our beginning is small our latter end shall greatly increase. I encourage you today to appreciate the place that God has you right now, and to enjoy the journey He has placed you on in your life. You may be starting off small, but learn from where you are and soak in all you can from the position God has you in, because if you really trust God, He will continually lift you up. You should always be steadfast in your thinking that even when you see people seemingly passing you in life do not fret or fear, but remember you are right where God wants you to be.
Do not give up and do not give in, although your beginning is small your latter end will be great. God has great things in store for you, but you cannot give up now because you do not like where you are. I know The Lord has great things for me, and although I may be small right now, watch out I am about to greatly increase in God.
Since I know my latter end will be greater than my beginning I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for the journey that you have me on, and you have done great things for me, and I also know that greater is coming. In Jesus Name Amen.
