I was still on campus when I wrote my first book several years ago. I put my best into that small book. As God would have it, one of my professors on campus got to see the book. He so much appreciated the content and quality of the book that he bought fifty copies. He gave them to his son, who was travelling to the US for study, to help distribute over there. I learnt that greatness speaks.

Friend, greatness speaks. It is not about size. It is about mentality. We don’t get organised because we are big, we get organised to be big (Proverbs 6:6-11). When you wait until you are big before you live a life of excellence, you may never become big. If you always use your smallness as an excuse for mediocrity, greatness would elude you.

There are no small assignments. We only have people with small minds (1 Samuel 17:34). It is not the office that makes the man. It is the man that makes the office. You are the one to give value to what you do. Never allow anyone to talk you down. Raise your game. Be a role model of excellence where you are and with what you do (1 Timothy 4:12).

God specializes in hiding Himself in small people to do big things. Most of the parables of Jesus glorified the least, the lost and the last (Matthew 13:32, 20:16, Luke 15:32). God wants to use you to do great things despite your smallness so that His name can be glorified (1 Corinthians 1:27-29). The life of God in you cannot be limited (1 Samuel 17:42-58).

Greatness is a function of what is in you. What is in you would always show whether you own a small shop down the street or you own a shopping mall in a major city. It does not matter if you are speaking to a crowd of 5,000 or just 5 people; pour excellence into it (1 Samuel 17:28).

God can either spread what you do or stop it. When you represent God well with your life and enterprise, God becomes your publicity agent; but when you are a poor representation of Him in mediocrity, He stops or limits what you are doing. There is greatness on your inside. Partner with God and work your way into manifesting it (Psalms 78:70-72). You will succeed.
