The Restored Orchard

Encouragement for Today

Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.” (The seven lamps represent the eyes of the Lord that search all around the world.)

Zechariah 4:10 NLT

Have you ever tried to break a bad habit or change a routine? The first steps are some of the hardest. There’s a certain type of momentum that has to be built up before the newness becomes second nature. You may even wonder if those small beginning steps are even making a difference.

God rejoices in the small steps.

Today, I want to encourage you to keep going! Your steps are seen by God. Though small, they are not insignificant. Just like the people of Israel rebuilding the temple, it is a step by step by step process. God is proud of the progress that you’ve made in following His will. Don’t grow weary in the early stages. Your actions impact the world for His glory.
