From Series ” God In Your Business” by Samuel Kwame Boadu – Page 1 of Chapter 1
I earlier shared an article and I quoted a verse concerning small beginning. Yes Starting small and not despising it. I will therefore begin this Series with a verse in the Good book.
“If you would seek God and implore the Compassion of the Almighty, if you are pure and upright, surely now He would rouse Himself for you, and restore your righteous estate. Though your beginning was insignificant, yet your end will increase.” – Job 8:5-7
This should tell you God loves small and humble beginnings because it from this beginning that greatness grows. Everything great you see around you started small even any great company you can think about now. Some will argue that they know of a great company that started big but I can also argue my point that that great company that started big as you think, were nowhere like what they are today at the time you thought they started Big. Many great companies you listed have gone through phases & stages before arriving to this stage that you admire soo much.
Every nation, individual on this planet has an exodus and that exodus was humble and small. Anyone great, famous etc had an exodus and surely it never took them a day to get to where they are now.Many entrepreneurs do not appreciate their smallness to be greatness hence give up on it and throw it all away pursuing a mirage of Great (BIG)Start.
To Plant and and to raise goes through processes (Check my earlier Article on The Problem & The Process).That business you have started small is a process just as life is and no matter how small it is now God wants me to tell you you must appreciate and enjoy it and you must not in any way despise it.God said i should make you aware it’s a seed of Greatness.
It looks like a long road to go but it takes just a second for God to turn things around but GOD needs a seed to water it and that is your seed.
Grow pass people who laugh at your smallness, Grow pass people who put you down ,Grow pass negative views and utterances and Grab –hold that vision,that dream and set your soul on Fire till you arrive.
“There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven..a time to plant, and a time to uproot what is planted..a time to tear down and a time to build up” – Eccles 3:1-3
