Why do I need to wait until 2015 to get serious about dropping 5lbs? Why wait to be a better friend, a better student, a better praying woman? It seems silly to me that I have to wait18 days to be a better me..Why can’t we start things NOW? I mean, if we’re going to be so powerful, let’s start today why wait? If we are going to start a business that’s going to be so jumpin’, why wait?
I was in the book of Acts this week, and Saul whose name was later turned into Paul was one of the churches biggest threat. In the beginning of Acts chapter 8, it describes how Saul approved of killings of Christians and basically how he would do anything to make sure the gospel was not preached. Chapter 9 rolls around and we see a “come to Jesus moment” for Saul. God basically goes and get Saul and ask him “Saul, why do you persecute me?” (vs4). Saul was blind for three days and he did not eat or drink anything at that time. God seen something valuable in Saul and sent someone to restore his sight physically and in the spiritual realm. The word says (vs18). “IMMEDIATELY, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, (vs19) and after taking some food, he regained his strength”. Pause. Saul went from killing Christians in chapter 8 to being restored in chapter 9 and we are waiting for 2015 to get it right? No IMMEDIATELY his blindness went away so IMMEDIATELY we need to get moving on our God given assignments.
My favorite portion of the story comes in chapter 9 vs. 20 when it says “AT ONCE he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God”. Saul didn’t wait until he got two more meals in him. He didn’t wait until he went shopping, found a partner to do it with, or until the season changed his got on his mission AT ONCE, so what are we waiting for? Not only did God come get Paul, he restored him and gave him strength. You don’t need to wait until 2015 to make things happen. If God called you to do something, then he has prepared you right now in this moment and you need to move.
Ill close by saying twice this week through two different sermons I heard God tell me basically he doesn’t need me to fulfill his assignment. You may be thinking dang that’s messed up God, but honestly it’s the truth. I’m not the only one that can blog and write daily prayers, he can call anyone on his bench to get in the game, BUT he loves me so much and wants it for me so bad he choose me like he choose Saul (Paul), and I would be doing myself a disservice if I wasted that opportunity because I thought the time wasn’t right. Plain and simple, dont wait until 2015 to move and do what God told you to, do it NOW and if you really want to be fresh I’ll give you until Monday, but for real it needs to happen with urgency!
