Isaiah 28:9-10 Whom will he teach knowledge? and to whom will he make to understand the message? them that are weaned from milk and drawn from the breast. v:10 for it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line, here a little and there a little.
Exodus 23:29 -30 I will not drive them out from before thee in one year, unless the ground should become desolate, and the beast of the field should multiply against you. v:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until you have increased and you are ready to inherit the land.
Have you ever looked at the impossibility of something in your life and thought; ” No way would I ever be able to do that?” Have you ever seen yourself accomplishing something bigger than yourself but were held back by the fear of failure? Is there anything in your life that you believe God wants you to do but you just do not know how to get it started? We all have and in fact, today’s readings are just for you!
The Bible is a book of God’s truth, and within its pages there are principles. These principles are the foundations of God’s truths and for those who choose to live according to them, God promises that our lives will reflect the fruit of our choices and beliefs. Among the many principles found in the Bible one of the most important is the principle of ‘being faithful’, because upon learning this principle the others begin to fall like standing dominoes. In fact, before the children of Israel entered into the Promise Land, God specifically told them that He would drive out their enemies a little at a time. Isaiah prophesied this same thing regarding the message of the Messiah and those who would be chosen to carry His message. In both instances God is telling us that He only gives instruction as well as insight a little at a time. The reason for this is to insure that we are learning to be faithful in the smallest of matters. In other words God wants us to live in the light we are given before more is given. God comes to us in increments as the Holy Spirit trains us to recognize the voice of Christ. The more we recognize and obey, the more revelation we receive from above.
So how does this principle transfer to the dreams and desires to build or accomplish what seems impossible? Because the same way we learn to live for God, one day and one moment at a time, is the same way we put our hands to what seems far fetched and beyond our ability. Living for God is the hardest thing in the world and if He can teach us how to do that, is there really anything too hard for Him? We simply pray and ask Him where to start and before it is all over with, He is leading us one step at a time to accomplish the impossible. It is His will that victory does not come all at once as we learn to be ever depending on Him while ridding our lives of self reliance. That is a process that demands a faithful disciple, and one who is willing to trust God for things bigger than the mind of the person dreaming of them! Impossible is a word God loves to nullify one faithful step at a time!
Quote of the day: ”It is not to be inferred from hence that I am, or shall be disposed to quit the ground I have taken, unless circumstances more imperious than have yet to come to my knowledge should compel it; for there is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and to pursue it steadily”. George Washington speaking on the possibility of the impossibility of The American Revolution! Many great things are accomplished one faithful minute at a time! In the Spirit of that statement we are happy to tell you that today’s post is our One Hundredth Devotional as we only started this outreach earlier this year. We are indebted to the God we serve and all of those who faithfully uplift this ministry with your prayers. God bless you!
