You are a glorious true witness to this.
YOU are a keeper of this principle you may not know it but you are. In less than five minutes the light bulb will turn on.
Why am I certain?
You are here in this moment reading me. You are a living raving breathing soul. Enough good to show me you have ever failed and fallen at some point.
Earth is filled with heroes who still are or are not.
But still you are the Michelangelo of your life. The David you are sculpting is YOU.
Despise not yourself.
The bible says despise not the day of little things (Zechariah 4:10)
There are all kinds of species in botany life; all kinds of species in marine life: from the little fish in the bowl, to the big gigantic whales in the ocean. God carefully designed each one – nanotechnology.
Inside a little ant has such microcosmic components. And Solomon said, “consider the way of the ant” (Proverbs 6:6) how he prepares his food in his colony. He knows the seasons; he knows winter is coming. He knows how to plan with foreknowledge, so in the winter time he is in his colony; and how they could work together in harmony.
The kind of courage God put in the ant; you are a human being billions of times bigger than an ant; yet you walk into his territory, you step on his house, the ants are not going to run and take off and say, “look a monster!” they will be all over you, you will be running because they have courage. They’re going to defend their territory; they’re going to stand there. They have administration, they know how to plan; prepare for the future. Man has to go to university, take a course in Business Administration how to plan and do things. Yet this little creature is designed with all of this, until Solomon said, “consider the way of the ant.” (Proverbs 6:6).
You will learn a lot of things in YOU.
God put a lot of His great Mysteries in little things. Then He cautions us. “DO not despise the day of little things.” (Zechariah 4:10)
But why do we have to fail or fall in life?
I pondered much on this. Then I went on a mini research.
We all pass through all these seasons in our personal life’s winter, summer, autumn and spring.
But then why is autumn also referred to as fall?
Why is one season referred to with two names autumn or fall?
Here’s the magic:
The root meaning of the word autumn came from the Latin “autumnus”, also meaning “autumn”. “autumnus” came from an Etruscan word and is related to the Latin “augere” meaning “to increase”.
That’s the catch! – to increase or to accelerate.
Okay chew on that.
“fall” on the other hand comes from the idea of leaves falling from trees and many plants.
So why is falling and increase mixed together in one season?
IT’S IN FALLING THAT WE INCREASE.
Let me explain.
The leaves fall from the trees because the life of the tree (sap) goes down to the roots to hide from winter (death), yet in this fall the fallen leaves provides further nutrients via decomposition to boost the tree nutritional supply. After winter the tree sap comes back online offering the tree growth and maturity in spring time.
That is why in all victories, successes, heroic acts and achievements there is growth-pains or birth-pains.
You cannot be a victor without overcoming.
That’s the magic in the fall. Magic in FALLING. Magic in failure.
The tree fails. It can’t produce or bear fruits or offer fragrance or nectar to the bees or shade to the passer byes.
Yet the mystery-of-how-kicks-in in spring time. Coming with power and glory
Despise not the day of YOUR little things.
You have more gumption than you ever thought.
Let nothing retard you. Go forth and profit!
In winter go into your colony like the ant until it passes.
Defend your territory. You have in-built magic
I love you
