All great things always start small and insignificant

Good morning, dear friends! Praise God for the wonderful day He has given us! Thank God for one more opportunity to be filled with His living Word!

Yesterday we began talking about how all great things always start small and insignificant. In order to enter the fullness of your calling and ministry, we need to do what is revealed to us today whatever that would be. Your knowledge, your experience and your mind – these are all gifts from God which we can use in serving people. When you serve people with your gifts, then these gifts make room for you. «A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men» (Proverbs, 18: 16).

Studying the church history, we see that all of God’s generals didn’t start big. These people used what they had and did whatever they could. They began using the abilities they had. Eventually, their gifts found their place in the Body of Christ and grew into large ministries.

For example, Dr. T.L. Osborn saw that people needed salvation, so he started meeting this need to the best of his ability: he started printing little tracts on his printing machine and went door to door leaving them in their post boxes. At the time he couldn’t even imagine that it will lead him to huge international evangelistic ministry that he has today.

Today T.L Osborn is one of the veterans and apostles of world evangelism of his generation. He has preached in more than 95 countries of the world; he encouraged many and lit the fire of the Holy Spirit in many people that are the leading ministers of this generation. We can name others such as Archbishop Idahosa, Moris Cerullo, John Osteen, R.W. Schambach and many others.

But the ministry of T.L. Osborn began small; he did what he could. Afterwards his gift made room for him in the Body of Christ.

I once heard a story of a sister in the Lord who was paralyzed. Notwithstanding, this sister wanted to find her ministry in the Body of Christ. So she started to pray for every house and every family in her street. The result was that most of the people who lived in this street got saved. When it was done, she started praying for the families that lived in the neighbourhood – with the same result. Through this she found her gift, – it was the ministry of intercessor, – and she found her place in the Body of Christ. All of this happened because she just did what she could to promote the work of God’s Kingdom. It says in the Bible: «Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might…» (Ecclesiastes, 9:10).

I think that in the beginning it was very hard for this lady. She needed to invest time and to be patient and diligent. She did all of it and found her place. This lady was consistent in prayer; she prayed all the time without taking any breaks. Besides, she prayed fervently and with all of her might. She did her best and consequently she discovered her ministry area. Her circumstances and her condition did not hinder her from bringing fruit to God.

Reasons of barrenness of many believers are not found in their circumstances; most often it is their laziness, passivity and inconsistency.

If you will do what your hands find to do and you will do it with all of your heart then you will receive your inheritance – the ministry and the blessing that follows it. «And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ» (Colossians, 3: 23-24).

Do whatever you can wholeheartedly, as unto the Lord, and you will receive the great reward from Him!

May the Lord bless you!Till tomorrow!

Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
