Catch us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines…
– Song of Solomon 2:15
- Not Taking A Step of Faith
Even after we have done all we possibly could, some of us still short-change ourselves by not taking the necessary steps required to get our desire. Rather than take sustained action, we procrastinate by crying, whining, and bemoaning our lot to whoever cares to listen, lamenting all we had done in the past without any result.
God is not impressed by tears and complaints. He doesn’t dig pity party either. He is only moved by faith. The Bible says ‘without faith, it is impossible to please God’. Because we are yet to grasp the import of Bible’s definition of faith as “the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen” (Heb 11:1 NLT), we wait (you call it tarry?) for the time when it is going to look like it before we take a step, and by so doing languish in abjection for as long as that may be.
Listen brethren, the best time to do anything is NOW. Don’t wait until it looks like it before you act, otherwise it may be too late by then. The Bible says “He who observes the wind will not sow. And he who regards the clouds will not reap” (Ecclesiastes 11:4). The New Living Translation (NLT) puts it simpler, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done!”
So take a step of faith now; cast your net into the deep right away; do that thing you have been putting off for so long TODAY! You will be amazed to see that YOU are the one who has been delaying God from releasing His blessing to you all along, not that He doesn’t care nor is slow in hearing, as you probably thought.
When you do the possible, God will do the impossible. Nothing moves until you move. A tortoise cannot make progress unless it puts out its head and legs out of its shell. So get out of your own shell and break through into your blessing.
You will succeed in Jesus Name!
