Topic: Be Progressive
The account in Genesis chapter 1 gives a vivid explanation of progression. God moved from one level to another. He did not create all things in one day. This same approach is applicable in business. Your success in business is evident when you move from one level to the other. You should not remain at the beginning where you started; there should be advancement. Think big from the beginning but start with what is available and then keep making progress.
Job 8:7 (KJV) Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
To neglect the law of progression may keep you from going forward. Start with what is available; it is not evidence of doubt but evidence of planning. Faith will not take the place of planning. The Almighty God had to plan and if He, to whom all things are possible moved from one step to another, then you are not exempted. One step at a time is the surest way to get to the top. Every long journey starts with a step. Failure to take the first step is also failure to arrive at your destination.
If you do not believe in the principle of progression, you will not go far in business. When you move from one stage to another in progression, you will be more stable. If you despise an orange seed you will not get an orange tree. No child is born as an adult; he grows to become an adult. Whatever you have now is enough to start your next miracle.
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Jesus never considered the shame and chastisement as a barrier to His vision but as a bridge through which He will achieve His vision.
Always have a vision of the future by setting a picture before you and begin to feature in it and see it. When you are starting small, you can see where you are going; so what is happening does not upset you. Do not be ashamed, just be focused.
Every stage is a stage of stability because progression gives you stability. It gives you opportunities to face challenges and develop your mental capacity. When you are in business, challenges stretch you. The good side of challenges is that it helps to provoke your capacity to perform. It makes you face giants and come out victorious.
A man that progresses should never be proud. If you want to go into business you must be humble.
John 6:12 (KJV) When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
Progression guarantees future discipline. You will never waste resources. If you can see where you are going, challenges you encounter now will not intimidate or stop you.
As you start from where you are and continue to seek positive means to make progress, the desire of your heart shall be delivered into your hands, in Jesus name-Amen!
God bless you.
