little by little, day by day…

Posted August 27th, 2012 by Leah and filed in Word of Encouragement

Living on a farm is such good training ground for me. Maybe you can relate to this…  My personality is one that prefers all to be beautiful, orderly and complete so I can be about my life. To be about my life- concentrating on the things that bring purpose and meaning. But God works in our lives in stages, little by little, day by day, in the midst of the mundane.

Exodus 17:1…  All the congregation of the people of Israel moved on from the wilderness of sin in stages, according to the commandments of the Lord…

Life on The Farm is a continuous cycle. As soon as I finish weeding the last bed in the garden, the first bed needs weeding again. As soon as Jim and his John Deer finish cutting the back part of the grove, it’s time to cut the front again.

God moved the Israelites in stages. Life is a process of taking the next right step, which supernaturally imparts meaning and purpose to the everyday mundane.

God moves us through life in stages, seasons, and gives us victories one step at a time.

Dueteronomy 7:22…The Lord your God will clear away these nations before you little by little.

Exodus 16:4…Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day…”

Lord, please help us not to be impatient as you produce Christ-likeness is us, day by day, little by little. Each new day brings a new season to stand under Heaven and receive, to gather, our daily bread. Prompt us not to run ahead or gather more, but hunger for daily bread, the perfect portion to sustain us each and every day.

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life…”

He will give you exactly what you need today.

    amen and amen! exactly what I need today. I was making the bed yesterday morning and lamenting why things weren’t happening faster for me. The Lord said,’all good things take time…”

    wonderful post.
