Do you have a fresh start with God? Have you united with God and accepted His help? Have you been waiting patiently and in faith for your breakthrough? If these are seasons you experienced, then I have good news for you: It is the season to do something about your situation (Eccl. 3:1-8).
IT IS TIME TO ACT!
Our biblical heroes stepped out after hearing from God, and actually did something to change their circumstances. Noah built the Ark, Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees, Moses led the Israelites through the desert, Joshua led the battles that won the Promised Land, David engaged Goliath in battle, and a young Jeremiah answered the call to a prophetic ministry! Each of these men embraced their time to act, and became successful.
There is a time to pray, to wait patiently, and then ……to execute. Have we gotten so spiritual that we have forgotten that faith without works is dead? (James 2:17).
If God is with us, why do we fear and procrastinate? We have to get up; quit hesitating and giving ourselves seemingly plausible reasons for not acting, and get going!
God gives victory to those who add action to prayers, and works to faith.
It indeed is our time to act; we must not delay!
Lesson of the Week
1. Do not be afraid (Isaiah 41:10).
2. Step out in faith (1 Samuel 17:45-51).
The Creator of the Universe commands us not to be afraid because He stands with us against our adversity. Fear often works against faith, and stops us from summoning our inner strength. We must put away fear, especially the fear of failure and ridicule!
Past heroes of faith show us the virtue in following up our prayers with planned action. Each hero planned and executed obediently and flawlessly. When it is time to act, we must learn to act decisively and quickly, and seize victory while it is yet within reach.
Remember that success comes to those who dare; if you do not try, you have no chance of winning!
It is your time to act; just do it, and give God all the glory for your victory.
May God empower you this week to strive, and to overcome.
Blessings from Him who desires to give you all things!
