Day 35: The Longest Lever

Today’s Reading:
Day 35 / The Longest Lever (pages 194-198)

My ah-ha from today’s reading:

“If we do little things, God will do the big things. But we have to do the little things like they are the big things.”

I probably referenced this same quote during our last 40 day challenge. It is one of my absolute favorites.

I think I’m drawn to this because I’m a big things kinda girl. I want to see God move in BIG ways. And I’m guilty of being caught up in asking God for the big things.

All the while, God is simply wanting me to be faithful in the little things.

That’s so easy to miss sometimes.

Pray. Listen. Humble myself.

If I can worry less about striving to do the BIG – there is more of me to devote to what matters most.

I want to be one of the 6 people who show up for prayer that end up turning an entire city upside down for God. I want to see that. But right now, I need to be faithful in the little things.

Do you struggle with the little things? I’ll be praying for both of us.

  1. And the quote that stood out to me was right below that and it is a quote from Oswald Chambers. “It is inbred in us that we have to do exceptional thing for God; but we have not. We have to be exceptional in the ordinary things.” Page 196

    Lord, help me to focus on the everyday tasks and do them exceptionally well and you take care of the BIG things.

  2. Both of those were good quotes. my spirit is willing, my flesh is weak. Lord, I pray that my flesh and spirit would match so I could do the ordinary things that need to be done and watch you put the extra in it. Praying for you too Starr.
