In the last few years we had come into covenant with God and each other for unity in all areas of our lives. Of course the trials of life do not end…so we weary at times and waiver. I’ve learned not to nag, I think, you’d have to ask Don, 😀
I just pray…and for many months now I have learned only to pray the Word of God. In my turmoil I cannot get His Word wrong, and He tells me that His Word does not return void…so there I am!
The Little Things
On June 23, several people sent me an email from The Elijah List with a prophetic word and teaching by Mark Chironna.
For several days I have read and re-read this article and there is one part that I feel impressed of the Lord to share with you. I will put the complete prophetic word in the next section of the motivation but I want to point out this one part, if I may.
“Pay attention to the signposts, for they are the meaningful coincidences that I bring you through to let you know that this is Me. This is Me. This is Me. These are the things I will do,” saith the Lord, “and I will not leave them undone for this is a season of the acceleration of momentum and the beginning of small that leads to large miracles.
“Despise not the small miracles. If you will celebrate them, they will get bigger. Begin where you are. Take the next easiest step of faith and discover that what is being stirred up in you is about to be manifest in the events of your life,” saith the Spirit of Grace.
A signpost is defined as a guide, a beacon, an indication. God is saying to look for the little things – little miracles, little provisions, little improvements in your marriage, little improvement in your health.
He is saying to look for these little things because they are a guide to the big things, they are an indication that you have stepped into a new place of blessing and it is the little things that lead to the big things.
You know, it is like a dam that holds back tons of water – the breaking of that dam will begin will a small hole in the dam, the size of a pin, with just a little water trickling through – however, before long more and more water pushes its way through and before you know it all the water has broken through.
God is saying this is how it is going to be in this season – it will begin with little things. But we have to pay attention to the little things. We have to recognize the little things because it is only when we celebrate the little things that God will cause them to get bigger and bigger until the fullness of the blessing of this season is released upon us.
As we celebrate the little things – we will see an acceleration of things and they will become bigger and bigger. If we don’t recognize and celebrate the little things – we will not see the big things.
Have you seen the evidence of small things in your life lately? Have there been MOMENTS when you could see the hand of God at work in your marriage? Did it seem better just for a moment? Did your health appear improved, just for a moment? Did you receive a small financial increase? Did you experience a moment of hope that you haven’t felt in a long time?
If you have experienced any of these ‘small’ things – I encourage you today to celebrate them – make a big deal over them. Appreciate them as you would if they were really big miracles – tell God how very grateful you are for these little things. These little things are your indication that the bigger things are here too – but first, we must be thankful for the little things.
If you are faithful over little – God will make you ruler over much. Are you being faithful to praise Him for the little things?
I had never really thought about it like this until last night – but I can assure you that from now on I will be as thankful for the little things as I am for the big things – they are my signpost – leading me to the fullness of my blessing – they are my indication that the fullness of my inheritance and my promise in God is here.
‘Father, today, I thank YOU for the little things!!!’ ‘I take today and celebrate the little things!’
