There Is No Substitute For The Plans I Have Set Before You

In these days of small beginnings, do not allow yourself to feel overwhelmed. For as you begin to behold and comprehend the magnitude of what has been set before you it is logical and normal to see it as too much. In fact, it would be too much if you were by yourself, but remember you are not. You are not by yourself, but you have been grafted into the vine, and have become members of my household. So as you see the vision I’ve given you, know it is bigger than you can accomplish by yourself, and this is ok. It is ok because you are not alone. You never have been, and you never will be. (1)

As you see the small beginnings understand this is the context from which all great things have started, and with you it will be the same. Do not despise these days for it is a good place to start. And though you will desire to seek shortcuts, and attempt alternate options that will seem to save time, and cut costs, know these shortcuts will not work, for there is no substitute for the plans I have set before you.

Do not run away from the magnitude of labor set before you. Do not avoid the massive amount of hours required. Do not deny the sacrifice required of you. Instead, embrace all these things, and walk forward in courage and confidence knowing your God is with you, has prepared you, has equipped you, and is continuing to do so day by day, even hour by hour. Walk forward in the space of small beginnings, knowing as you continue to remain faithful these small things will grow, and will not remain small. All these things given to you, and set before you, will grow and continue to grow, over the course of time. (3)
