This reminds me of my school days. The teacher announces at the beginning of the year that a paper will be due at the end of 1st semester...just to get you thinking about it. Throughout the semester, there are assignments required and due that will be incorporated into the the final paper - which consistently keeps the assignment in the forefront of your mind. At the end, all the work done along the way is pulled together into a term paper.
Another example is signing up for swimming lessons. When you sign up, you don't know how to swim. But along the way, you receive instructions and the concept becomes clearer and clearer.
If you can see examples of "getting more along the way" after making a decision to start something new in the natural, how much more will God give you in the supernatural.
This is an encouragement to me and Father, I just want to say,
"Thank You Lord"!
