Remaining faithful in the days of small and slow beginnings

In faithfulness I will certainly learn and absorb all I need to learn and absorb. I will experience everything according to God’s perfect timing in my life, and while I may not know it in the moment, I may not fully appreciate or understand it when it is happening, I will learn every single thing I need to learn. So I don’t have to worry about what I will do or how I will do it. I will not fear the unknown, or what is yet to be revealed, for as I endeavor forward I will acquire the valuable and necessary experience I will need. I will not worry, as if this is an oversight God has forgotten. I will not be afraid, as if God will permit me to blunder from one phase to the next omitting the very purpose of my experience to begin with.

I rest in the assurance of God’s plans for me, for He is more than well acquainted with who I am. I rest in His plans for He is more than well acquainted with the call upon my life, as well as how to develop my skills and talents in response to the call. God is more than well acquainted with me in every way, so I will not fear when I see uncertainty on my horizon. I will no fear when I perceive turmoil, difficulty, and contradiction, but rest in God, in who He is, and in His great plans for me, for He is the one who put all things together, and He is the one holding them together.

As I continue in my faithfulness, slow as it may seem, He will certainly advance me. I will certainly move forward, even though in the moment I may not perceive any movement, or any value to my present experience. I share all I have with Him, for in doing so I will not only bond my heart to Him in a permanent and meaningful fashion, but I will also give myself the capacity to clearly form my ideas, motives, and questions, and in this crystallization I will begin to see gaps in my knowledge and experience.

With this awareness of the gaps I presently possess I will be more prepared to understand them and receive the answers and corrections as they are presented to me. The awareness alone will not be my remedy, however it will prepare me to receive my remedy effectively. I will be poised to adopt what God is implying in a subtle manner, and do so with not only accurate discernment, but also eager joy and anticipation.

So I will remain faithful in the days of small and slow beginnings, as I make myself ready and share all these with Him, day after day, season after season.
