I trust that you are well and that this post meets you in great spirits.
Some time ago, I had a task at work that seemed very convoluted. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, but as I started, it became clearer what I needed to do and how I needed to go about it. I have come to realise that one of the most significant milestones one could ever deal with is starting and because the enemy knows this, he tries to keep us from starting. Keeps us from starting to obey God or cultivating the right attitude or association.
This and other similar occurrences made me begin meditating on the power of starting. Often we are faced with so many undaunted decisions and uncertainties and get conflicted about the aftermath of a decision even before we begin. Frankly, we will never know what lies ahead if we never start. So the best way to know what lies ahead is to start. Start from where you are. Clarity comes from doing.
My pastor usually buttresses this point using the analogy of a car. He would say no matter how fast or luxurious a vehicle is, its headlamp cannot see the entire distance to be covered. But as the car moves, the headlamp sees farther, and the route gets clearer.
Reading through scriptures, I observed that many miracles manifested 'as they went.
Sis, what is God calling you to? What has He told you to do? You wouldn't fully have a grasp of it until you start.
The principle of as they went for me underscores the essence of faith because it takes faith to move and get started – moving from what you see into the unseen with the hope that it would get clearer as you move. (2Corithians 4:18)
Whatever instruction we have received a call from my from God is enough for us to get started, and as we start, we gain clarity – again, clarity comes from doing. So even when you don't understand where you are headed, the assurance that you started what God has asked you to do will make your path clearer.
"And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns."
