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

Exodus 23:30

God is saying to the children of Israel that they would not defeat their enemies and take pos- session of the promise land all in one day, all in one week, in one month, nor all in one year. But little by little, in due time by the power of God, the children of Israel would prevail over their enemies, and posses the promise land in Canaan because He would bless them to increase in strength. And because God would bless the children of Israel to increase in strength to overcome their enemies, they would have the power to inherit the land of Canaan.

Not only does the little by little principle applies in the physical, but it also applies in the spir- itual. 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.

There is a story about a little boy with a small shovel. He was trying to clear a pathway through deep, new-fallen snow in front of his house. A man paused to observe the child’s enormous task. “Little boy,” he inquired, “how can someone as small as you expect to finish a task as big as this?” The boy looked up and replied confidently, “Little by little, that’s how!” And he continued shov- eling.

And because what Jesus Christ has done, and because of whom He is, God keeps blessing us little by little because His mercy is new every morning. Trust God to move your mountain, but keep on digging.
