Salutations to the Saints of God!
Today’s “WORD” on Wednesday focuses on everyone who is plagued by procrastination and at a virtual “stand-still” of stagnation! There is a question that is simplistic, yet thought provoking. The question is: “What are you waiting on?” Famous author and writer, Napoleon Hill shared these powerful words: “Don’t Wait. The Time will NEVER be just right!” Certainly, one would agree that life is filled with uncertainties, twists and turns. But, if you’re a person that is waiting on every single thing to line up perfectly and for the stars to align with the stratosphere and for the moon to move in conjunction with your mindset, then guess what?...You’re sadly mistaken.
Let me help you today. Many people spend their entire lives waiting on just that perfect moment to “launch” their lives. Unfortunately, they quickly find out that by waiting too long, time has passed them by. If you’re reading this message and you’re a year older than the last time you said you would start your business, “What are you waiting on?” How long have you talked about cleaning that room, starting that project, updating your resume’, looking for a better job, joining church, living for the Lord, quitting smoking, losing weight, starting a relationship, buying a house, getting your credit repaired and a host of other things that have apparently collected dust and have become a distant memory?
Listen, there is no time like the present! King Solomon, who is the writer of Ecclesiastes profoundly states that there are seasons for everything. In essence, you’re in a season right now! But, here’s the good news. Whatever season you’re in, God desires for us to make the most of our season. This means, we can no longer wait on someone else to do it for us. We can no longer sit at the crossroads of procrastination in hopes that one day things will get better. We can no longer afford to settle for a stagnated way of life. Mediocrity is no longer acceptable and the “Status-Quo,” is not an option! We must raise the standard!
I challenge each us today to soar to higher heights. Get up and do something you’ve never done before! Take a leap of faith and learn how to launch into the depth of your destiny! (Don’t miss this)…In Luke Chapter 5, Peter was complaining that he had been finishing all night and had not caught anything. Jesus said to Peter, “Launch out into deeper water, then let down your nets and you will catch more fish than you can handle!” Guess what, Peter did as the Lord, Christ instructed him and he had more fish than he could handle!”
Saints of God, what I’m simply sharing with you is that many of you have been fishing in “shallow water!” You will not get the promotion sitting on the “banks of your life.” You will not gain what you want if you’re not ready to stretch further than you are. We will not be a great church on accident, we will become GREAT on Purpose! If you want more from God. If you desire more in your life, then start today by launching into the deep waters of life. Now, brothers and sisters, I ask you again, “What are you waiting on?” Now, think on these things…..
Love you lots,
“IMPACTING LIVES FOR THE CAUSE OF CHRIST!”
