Zerubabbel laid the foundation of the temple. He started small and kept going until the building was complete. Zechariah says God rejoiced when the capstone was put in. If we are doing what God wants us to do, He will help us sustain the work through to the end. The first brick doesn’t look like very much, but the completed project is worth the wait.
1. What is a project that you regret not having seen through to the end?
2. What is a project, spiritual or otherwise, that gave you great satisfaction when you complete it?
Challenge: Take a moment to move mentally through the steps listed for a project/habit/journey you are currently working on: start small, expect big things, take a break and finish strong. Pray for God’s help in specific ways for each step.
