Greater Things

“God knows how He can use your life to exert the maximum impact for His Kingdom. He may not immediately give you a large, international assignment. But you can expect that He will have something for you to do. It may be a very ordinary task. It may not carry much prestige.
However, if you faithfully do all God asks, then don’t be surprised if God gives you something new that has greater ramifications. Always remember, though, that any assignment from God is more than we deserve. Don’t be anxious to have larger and larger roles. Don’t keep pushing and asking for greater tasks from God or lobbying others for positions. Trust that when God is pleased with your faithful service, He will trust you with more in His perfect timing.” –from Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby, p. 312
