I am sure you have often heard there is no time like the present. Well, it is true. Did you move a step closer to your goal today? Maybe you didn’t jump the Grand Canyon kind of step, but something right?
As the Bible says, if a neighbor comes to you for help don’t say come back tomorrow and I’ll see what I can do. They are coming to you for a reason. You have the tools, the resources, God’s anointing. Don’t overlook the power in that. Know there is something about you that God is lifting up. Just keep at the small things. I have always heard Rome was not built in a day. Just do something, anything. Procrastination is such a killer of ideas and progress. Even chapter one of proverbs tells us that “fools are destroyed by their own complacency.”
Just imagine where we would be if we had just started yesterday, last week, last month, or last year. And I can hear the excuses. “But I don’t know what God wants me to do?” Well, have you even tried anything that was Christ Like? I don’t know, picked up the Bible, went to Church (at a time other than Sunday morning?) served in church, visited an assisted living home, fed the hungry, anything? Anything at all that God might recognize as benefiting others and his Kingdom? Don’t misunderstand this is not from judgement, this is just me asking what did you today?
In closing I will leave you with a quote I just came across yesterday in some of my reading. It comes from a gentleman by the name of Howard Thurman. He said, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
Don’t you think God would want you to be alive today? Don’t you think he would love it if other people could see his light shining in you? I know God reveals things to you in his own timing. But what if we enthusiastically pursued anything that was Christ like because he wants you to stop being just luke warm and be on fire for him? Maybe you just need to show God you are ready for his big reveal.
