It’s helpful to remember that God has His own timing as it relates to our inner healing. For some, breakthroughs are quick and dramatic. For others, the anticipated healing is much slower in coming and much less spectacular. So whether you find yourself progressing rapidly or slowly, it’s good to embrace this quotation from an unknown source: To hurry God is to find fault with Him, for God is never late.

When God spoke to the Old Testament governor of Persia, Zerubbabel, about the important task of rebuilding the Temple, He told him that the people should not think that small beginnings are unimportant.1. The inner healing process is as though God is rebuilding you into a beautiful temple for His Spirit to dwell in.2. Even the seemingly slowest and smallest steps in your healing process are hugely important. So embrace the healing process (spectacular or unimpressive) as well as the pace (rapid or slow) as it unfolds in your life.

It’s best to not be in a hurry or on some kind of a timetable when it comes to our inner healing. The truth is it takes as long as it takes. Remember, as this video proclaims, when it comes to the healing of your broken hearted, nothing is ever wasted. 

Where do you find yourself in your healing journey? I'd love to hear from you!

1. “The people should not think that small beginnings are unimportant. They will be happy when they see Zerubbabel with tools, building the Temple.” Zechariah 4:10, New Century Version.
2. “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 NASB.


  1. Thanks for the reminders! "small things" make up most of my life. Love also the song by Jason Gray. Got to see it live and was deeply impacted.

  2. Glad "small things" ministered to you, Scott. With God nothing is ever wasted!
