God Sees the Small Things
For who scorns the day of small things? These seven eyes of the LORD, which scan throughout the whole earth, will rejoice when they see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.
Though many enemies threatened the rebuilding of God’s temple after the Babylonian exile, God’s plan for the rebuilding prevailed. Those who rebuilt faced many obstacles, and God’s Spirit enabled them to succeed. While their progress may have seemed small at times, God delighted to see His kingdom advancing through the rebuilding.
Sometimes mountains we face seem unsurmountable, and our efforts appear small in comparison to the work that needs to be done. God’s eyes, however, scan throughout the whole earth looking for someone willing to advance His kingdom and actually engaging in the work of ministry. We do what we can and rely upon Him to do what we can’t. In this process, we see those great mountains move.
God sees your efforts. He knows even the small details you attend that keep His house running smoothly. He knows how you have put Him first and each sacrifice you have made. He rejoices over you and delights in your desire to serve Him. Trust His Spirit to take you where your own strength and might never will. Great things are accomplished through many days of small things.
Have a blessed day!
