The Next Big Thing

Big thing

The Jews returned to the land of God’s promise after 70 years of slavery in Babylon. Their hopes ran high as they expected God to work miraculously on their behalf.

They set out to rebuild the glorious temple constructed by Solomon, but it wasn’t long before discouragement set in. It wasn’t going the way they had expected, planned, or hoped (Haggai 2:1-3). The Jews were ready to give up. Their BIG thing wasn’t happening.

Their leader, a man named Zerubbabel, received a word of encouragement from the prophet Zechariah:

The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands shall also finish it. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. For who has despised the day of small things?  (Zechariah 4:9, 10).

While we wait for the next BIG thing … thinking that it’s where God is, we miss Him in the abundance of the small things. What a foolish shame, for life is filled over-abundantly with the small things He’s doing every day.
