Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much... (Luke 16:10, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
In scripture, the prophet Elisha told a man named Naaman to go wash in the Jordan River and he would be cured of his leprosy. Naaman was the Captain of an army, a very influential man. He didnt want to go wash in the dirty Jordan River. His attitude was, Thats absurd. Thats little. Thats insignificant. Thats not going to make any difference. His assistant said, Naaman, if he would have asked you to do something hard, something big, you would do it. Why dont you do this small thing? Naaman finally went and washed in the Jordan, and he was totally healed.
I wonder how many of us would see our breakthrough, our healing, our promotion, or a dream come to pass if we would just do the small thing that God is asking us to do. People think, Oh, it doesnt really matter. Ill do it one day. But realize today, those little things mean a lot. They are keeping you from the fullness of your destiny. It may be something small, but your act of obedience will cause God to release the big thing that He has in store.
A Prayer for Today
Father, I turn my heart and mind toward You right now. Search me; know me. Show me any areas of my life where I have not been obedient to You. I commit to follow You in the big things and the little things so that I can live the blessed life You have prepared for me in Jesus name. Amen.
