Last night, while in Lille, I was talking about spiritual procrastination, and the danger of not taking God-given opportunities, and not using our spiritual gifts. God will never ask you to do something without giving you the ability to do it. You may get passive or complacent and think, â€œyes, I know I need to do that. Maybe next week.â€ Well, before you know it next week turns into next month. Next month turns into next year.
Remember, when you put off what God has told us to do, you miss that season of grace. But if youâ€™ll deal with things as soon as God brings them to light, youâ€™ll have a special grace, a special empowerment. Youâ€™ll feel Godâ€™s enabling power helping you to do it, and you will avoid many trials and pitfalls.
Today, is there something youâ€™re putting off? Something you know in your heart that you are supposed to do? Donâ€™t let the season pass. Donâ€™t let complacency destroy you. Your destiny stands before you. God has something amazing for your future. Be bold; be strong. Step out in faith, be obedient, and embrace the good things God has in store for you!
“For the turning away of the simple will slay them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them.”(Proverbs 1:32, NKJV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for the grace to do and enjoy exactly what Youâ€™ve called me to do. Father, I will step out in faith and not procrastinate and miss out on my God-given opportunity. God, I will follow Your commands. Help me to be faithful like You are faithful. I love You and bless You today and always, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
