I remember when we were to start our Church ministry in the city of Akure. Everything looked empty and the vision seemed impossible. The only thing I had in my spirit was a sense of direction and a strong faith to start. We started by taking little steps and we have seen God amplify the steps day by day.

Friend, God orders the steps of a good man, not the sleeps of a good man (Psalms 37:23). What steps are you taking that God can amplify? For some people, too much of analysis is bringing paralysis to their initiative and productivity. You need to stop analysing and step into the waters of your destiny (Matthew 14:28-29).

Excellence is a journey, not a destination. Like every other journey, it must begin with a step. No matter how perfect you think your vision or strategy is, until you step out you would not know how to make it better. You start that business for a few weeks, observe the outcomes, get back to the drawing board and fine tune it for better output.

Perhaps, the reason the miraculous seems far from most people is because they are not taking any step (2 Kings 7:3). Like the story of the four lepers, it is better to take baby steps than to stay in idleness waiting for the conditions to be perfect. In reality, the conditions will not always be perfect; successful people have learnt to make their conditions perfect for them by taking steps.

What are those excuses that have been hindering you from taking steps (Proverbs 26:13)? Do you perceive that “there is a lion out there?” Don’t forget that you belong to the tribe of the Lion of Judah; lions don’t eat Lion (Revelation 5:5). Do you perceive that there are giants on your promised land? Remember that they are bread for you (Numbers 13:33, 14:9).

Are you scared of the financial implications of your vision? Don’t forget that God is the owner of the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalms 50:10). He has more than enough provisions for the visions He has given you (Philippians 4:19). When you take little steps; you would experience unusual results. Amen!
