God is in the business of beginning Good works. Don’t be afraid to allow God to begin a good work in you- to save, deliver, take you higher, revive, or do something special, unique, and awesome in your life. And regardless of what you are going through, or the problems you are dealing with, God is able to begin a good work in you. But you first have to initiate the start. Without question, finishing is better than starting. And the end of a thing is better than its beginning (Ecclesiastes 7:8). But in order to finish, you first have to start. And to complete a work, one must first begin. So let’s get it started.
God is the energy source behind gifts that begin good works. James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” I have been blessed to start a few things in my life: From my educational goals, my family, my business, my ministry along with several other projects. And I have come to realize that starting something is never easy. Allow me to make three brief observations about starting:
1. Don't start none won't be none. Excuse my slang, but if you don't start the project or business, it will never happen. The world needs your contribution. Otherwise, you will be left saying "woulda, shoulda, coulda" as time passes and the world will never have the pleasure of experiencing the thing you were supposed to start.
2. Despise not the day of small beginning (Zechariah 4:10): Don't look down on the situation just because you are small, and have little resources. Don’t be embarrassed because of where you are right now. Keep working at it. Everybody had to start somewhere. Be glad for what you have and the ability and resources God has given you. And move forward to initialize your start. Little becomes much when placed in the Master's hand. .
3. Remember, It’s not how you start but how you finish: It might be a small start or a slow start but at least it’s a start. Everybody had to start somewhere. Many are afraid to start small so they fail to start at all. And the finished product is never reached. The quickest way to the finish line is the start.
So let’s get it started. Where would the world be if ordinary individuals cease to start their great things. What if Alexander Bell never started his invention of the telephone or Thomas Edison never started his improvements on the light bulb. God begins good works by showing individuals a better way something can be done, or by revealing a new idea, a fresh approach, or an innovative technique. So don’t allow the barrier of the "Three Ds" (distractions, delays and discouragement) to hinder you from beginning the good work God has placed in your heart.
So let's get it started. Step out on faith and go forth in your destiny. The key is to trust God and lean on his word knowing that he is able to perform the good works he has placed in you to accomplish. The time is now to write your book, produce your music CD, launch your business, start your ministry, pursue your educational goals, begin your new career. And as you start and seek God, He will perform it. God has a performance measurement that is unmatched and a record that is undefeated. For with God nothing shall be impossible. So in the words of the famous Boxing Announcer Micheal Buffer, "Let's Get Ready to Rumble." Put simply, Let's get it started.
