You know God's timing is not ours. I often like things done yesterday. When God gives me a promise or vision I think it will happen by the next day.
I've learnt that sometimes between the promise and the fulfillment there is something called the wilderness.
I seriously thought in Radical by now I would have churches planted in Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft, enterprises, businesses, houses for the homeless and one hundred sons and daughters and be in Revival.
But if you're not careful I can, you can miss the things God is doing right now.
If we can only have a mindset to be thankful to not despise the little things. You see miracles often start with a small miracle, that gets bigger, or a series of little things that are just God.
Elijah said go back and tell me what you see. The servant said I see a cloud the size of a man's hand.
He could have been disappointed because that wasn't revival. But he wasn't and he got in position.
It might be something small. Might be a small cloud but it's still a cloud. Never despise the seemingly small answers to pray. The seemingly small touches of God in a meeting.
I am here to tell someone that you laid the foundation and you will finish what God's commissioned you to finish.
Don't be your worse enemy. God is going to do great things ahead through you. Don't despise only believe.
Father thank You for the small things. I am so grateful for every answer to prayer, every miracle, every cloud. And I choose to get in position today to finish what You called me to do in Jesus' name, Amen.
