Make Your Move Now
Solomon in Ecclesiastes commented that, “He who observes the wind will not sow” (Eccl. 11: 4). In other words, stop waiting for perfect conditions before making a move.
Most of us sit around in conviction that we’re waiting on God, when in fact He’s rather waiting on you. From my TCT (Totally Christian Television) “Just for Today: A daily Approach to Prayer & Scripture” writes the editor, “Too many of us stand on the dock waiting.
We want the ship in place, the gangplank perfectly positioned, the weather right, & an engraved invitation before we’re willing to launch out. It will never happen! Dreams don’t move toward us, we have to move toward them. One author writes: ‘It’s time to quit waiting for perfection, inspiration, permission, reassurance, someone to change, the right person to come along, the kids to leave home, the new administration to take over, an absence of risk, someone to discover you, a clear set of instructions, more self-confidence, or the pain to go away.
Instead of saying, ‘We’ve never done it before’, say, ‘We have the opportunity to be first.’ Instead of saying, ‘We don’t have the resources‘, say, ‘Necessity fuels invention.’ Instead of saying, ‘There’s not enough time’, say, ‘We’ll change how we work.’ Instead of saying, ‘We don’t have the expertise’, say, ‘Let’s network with those who do.’ Instead of saying, ‘Our vendors & customers won’t go for it’,say, ‘Let’s show them the opportunities.’ Instead of saying, ‘We don’t have enough money’, say, ‘Maybe there’s something we can cut.
Instead of saying,’We’re understaffed’, say,’We’re a lean, hungry team.’ Instead of saying, ‘It’ll never get any better’, say, ‘We’ll try one more time.’ Instead of saying, ‘Let somebody else deal with it’, say, ‘I’m ready to learn something new.’ Instead of saying, ‘It’s not my job’, say, ‘I’ll be glad to take the responsibility.’ Instead of saying, ‘I can’t', say, ‘By God’s grace I can!’ . It’s time to get on & move on. Like the lepers in 2 Kings 7:1-14, you can either sit around till the famine kills you, or you can get up & take a chance & match into the enemies camp.
The day you decide to move, God will magnify the sound of your steps & put your fears into flight. Make your move…”NOW” is the time!
