LITTLE BY LITTLE
By Ken Blue
“By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased, and inherit the land.” Exodus 23:30
It’s difficult to be patient when you have promises like those in this chapter. You would think forty years was long enough to wait, but it wasn’t, there was still a need for protection and growth.
If we fail to grow, we fail to receive that which God has for us. Each person believes he is more mature than he really is. If only we could get the breaks others get; if we were in a different location or had different people we would do much, much better. However, the truth may be that we have all we are able to minister to.
Little by little we grow, and as we do are given greater responsibly. It may be a year or two, but most likely, it will take decades. If you apply yourself by learning all you can about the ministry, you too will increase and “little by little” inherit that which God has for you.
