“Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and inherit the land.”

Exodus 23:30 

In this passage of scriptures, God was instructing the children of Israel on how they would defeat their enemies to possess and take over the promise land in Canaan. God says, yesterday we saw God promising to send an Angel to go before them to fight against their enemies, and now He says “Little by Little, I will drive them out from before thee, until thou be increased and inherit the land.” In other words as God leads us He would want us to realise the benefit of taking one day at a time.

if you are planning to lose weight like losing 10, 15, or 20 pounds this year, you won’t be able to lose it all in one day, one week, or in one month. But if you work hard at losing your weight, that is, if you exercise, and eat right, little by little, those pounds will fall off and decrease little by little. This means if you are planning to do anything don’t get into the habit of losing hope when it is not coming the way you thought but with discipline and patient working it out and praying along as you hold on in faith, little by little you will reap the harvest.

Not only does the little by little principle apply in the physical, but it also applies in the spiritual. You may not know the bible real well right now. You may feel like you are spiritually weak, and you feel like you are not where you should be with your walk with Christ. But little by little, if you start praying on a daily basis, if you start reading God’s word, start attending Sunday school, and Bible study, start taking notes when the pastor is preaching, or get involved in the ministry of the church, little by little , you will start growing in your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ. You must understand that Rome was not built in a day. It was built little by little. And likewise, you are not going to grow up spiritually all in one day. You can only grow up in the Lord spiritually, little by little.

You will get there in Jesus name; you will not grow weary or faint nor drop by the way side in Jesus mighty name. You will reach your goal and fulfill destiny in Jesus name.
