Message From Our Pastor
During a time of year in which most everyone we know is reflecting on the year we have just completed while looking forward to what is to come, my mind has been stirred by the prophet Zechariah. He wrote in the beginning of verse 4:10 “For who hath despised the day of small things?”
I don’t think I’m alone in looking for the monumental, the profound, or the landmark moments in life more often than the daily blessings that our faithful Father gives us. I certainly experienced the monumental when Jesus saved my soul, when I got married, when my children were born, and many other moments of course. Yet as I write, I’m reminded of what the prophet wrote-the small things that contribute to our daily walk with Christ, the whisper of God to encourage us, the friend who called when we needed to talk, the text of gratitude when we thought we were forgotten. All of these small things and more should help us realize that our Savior is guiding our steps and He has, as the song says, the whole world in His hands.
It excites me as I reflect and as I look forward that God is not only the God of the big, but He is the God of the small. He is the Lord of all, and He alone is worthy!
This coming year may contain some of the most profound moments for you, and I’m certain that God desires our praise in the landmark times, and in the times of life when everything just seems small. Remember, the psalmist says in 118:24 “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” Since we know this is the day the Lord hath made, we shouldn’t despise today, regardless if today seems filled with small things.
