Faithfulness In The Small Things
As I look back at my own life, I’m amazed to think about what God has done. Today I lead the international evangelistic ministry of Christ for all Nations. In that role I have had the extraordinary honor of leading more than 15-million people to Jesus in our massive open-air evangelistic campaigns around the world. People are often eager to find out how I landed such a position and they are often perplexed when they discover the reality. I actually started out in this ministry, not as a preacher, but working in the warehouse! That was the lowest and humblest position possible. Sometimes I felt invisible but God knew exactly where I was and He was watching. As I was faithful in the little things He was faithful in the big things.
Jesus laid out a principle in Luke 16:10 that is absolutely essential in the quest to fulfill God’s will for our lives. Jesus said, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.” You see, God calls us to small things before He calls us to great things. If you aren’t being faithful in the small things, He will not entrust you with more important things? So be faithful today wherever you find yourself and do everything as unto the Lord. As it says in Galatians 6:9 “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.”
