There Is No Hurry. Really?

In all labour there is profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. Proverbs 14:23

Procastination the thief of time

Charles Seindoll introduced him thus: A formidable giant, quick as a laser, silent as a moonbeam, very slick and can pick any lock. Once inside, His winsome ways will captivate your attention such that you world treat him as your best friend; but watch out, he is a professional thief. He will strip you without a blink of remorse. His name is Procrastination.

He specializes in stealing priceless valuables of time and incentives and leaving cheap substitutes in their place like excuses, rationalizations, empty promises, embarrassment and guilt.

The greatest weapon of this con-artist is not a bold face instruction of don’t do it but a subtle suggestion of there’s no hurry and with this, he hardly loses. He can outtalk any student when it comes to homework. He can outthink any executive when it comes to correspondence. He can out work any housemaker when it comes to doing dishes. He can outlast any parent when it comes to discipline.

Why not purpose to defeat this thief of time now. Surprisingly, as powerful and cunning this guy is, he cannot stand one word. NOW! It immediately sends him fleeing in frustration each time you say it and muster discipline to mean it. For starters, today, why not list two projects you’ve put off previously and get one done as we begin this new month.

Enjoy Grace!

Never put till tomorrow what you can do today.

Be Hot For God

Today on the daily discovery.

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were either cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Rev. 3:15-16

Many people give up on the word of God when they do not see the manifestation of what has been promised in the word of God immediately. Unlike the woman with the issue of blood as recorded in the word of God, instead of holding on; believing what they were promised in the word, they become covered by the reality of facts which are still not as potent as the truth- the word of God. God would rather have us hot. That is believing in Him.

The woman with the issue of blood went against her senses. She cast down all the reasoning that said to her that her case of twelve years should by now be deemed impossible to resolve. The reasoning that she should settle into a lifestyle that would accommodate her condition rather than fight the good fight of faith by taking corresponding actions in line with her belief to enforce her healing. Guess What! She was healed despite her previous failed attempts. Mary, the virgin, remained hot by believing God. She said, “nevertheless (i.e. despite the fact that what God said did not make natural sense), at they word…”, and the miracle child, the saviour Jesus Christ was born through her.

The widow of Zarephath was also hot in her belief of God’s word. She took the faith action of getting the jars as instructed by the prophet and she alongside her children were saved from death by starvation because she was hot in her belief of God.

N:B be hot in believing God for whatever He has promised you from His word!
