I walked by the walnut tree in our backyard and noticed this little limb with leaves growing out from the base of the tree trunk. This is not the normal place for new growth. New growth happens up in the branches and limbs. As I looked at the miniature limb, the Lord spoke, “There will be unexpected growth in unexpected places.”
While appearing small and vulnerable, the little limb carries all the DNA of the large walnut tree and a potential as thick and strong as the trunk from which it grew.
Today, do not measure the potential of what God has asked you to do by the first signs of life. Those first signs can appear small and fragile. Measure potential with the eyes of faith. Faith will help you see what was not expected.
