“Do not despise these small beginnings…” Zechariah 4:10


The Bible is full of stories of people who started out nowhere, but ended up going somewhere because God was directing and guiding their path. Time and time again God uses people who seem unusable, people whom society sees as nothing, and He turns them into something as they seek Him and His will.

Maybe you’re in a position right now that seems to be going nowhere. Maybe you look at your past and have convinced yourself that God can’t use you because of where you come from or what you’ve done. Don’t believe those lies. God wants to use you right where you are to do great things for Him. Simply rely on His strength and His plan for your life. And discover how your small beginning can lead to amazing purpose!


Thank God for where He has placed you. Ask Him to give you the right perspective on where you are, and pray for the discipline and discernment to follow Him as He directs your path.


Read the story of how David was anointed king of Israel in 1 Samuel 16. And remember that the greatest king in Israel’s history began as a boy whom no one thought would amount to anything!
