The Day of Small Things

There are some of you that see your life as HIDEOUS. You cannot see the BEAUTY in your life. You cannot see the WONDER of your life. Because all YOU see is DARKNESS. All you see is your BROKENNESS. All you see is your INADEQUACY. All you see are your FAILURES. …

How is it that when Jesus says that, “All you need is FAITH [the size] of a mustard seed,” we end up talking about HOW MUCH faith we need? Right? Because if your life isn’t where it “SHOULD” be, you “need to have MORE faith.” If anyone has ever told you that you need to have more faith, they’re saying the exact OPPOSITE of Jesus. … You may need more COURAGE, but you don’t need more FAITH. … because God can actually just SQUEEZE into that SMALL THING and create the BIG thing out of it. It’s not how much faith you HAVE, it’s WHAT you have faith in that matters. …

What He’s saying is, there are OBSTACLES that are in front of you that YOU will not be able to remove … not by MIGHT, nor by POWER, but when you’re moving by the SPIRIT of God, you’ll have VICTORY over the things that have held you CAPTIVE. …

I think we put too much emphasis on the FINISHED product and not enough emphasis on the raw BEAUTY of the PROCESS. … What’s the SMALL THING you need to step into right now?
