Small Things (Chinese/English)

Small Things


“For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth-Zechariah 4:10.”

“谁藐视这日的事为小呢?这七眼乃是耶和华的眼睛,遍察全地。见所罗巴伯手拿线铊就欢喜……撒加利亚书 4:10

Big things usually start small, and the temple was to be rebuilt by Ezra and Zechariah. Jesus said that if you have faith, the size of a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed, it will move mountains.


You don’t have to have a large ministry to have an impact; it is not the size of the ministry or of the church that counts. Your church can have 20 members and can greatly influence its community.   Because, if those members are filled with God’s power and a church of 300 is largely dead or lifeless, which one does God bless and use?


Look back in the chapter to verse 6, the Lord says the work, any work for Him, is not by man’s might but by His Spirit.   He will bless the work. I worry about numbers, believe me, I am a numbers person, but God will bless the work however small it is.


 Do not worry that your work is small.   Do not despise it.   You are working in your area of the vineyard and you are doing all you can.   Watch God bless you, although you may be few and weak.


God bless you,
