WORD FOCUS: IT’S TIME TO TAKE ACTION (1)
TEXT: Proverbs 28:1 “The wicked flee when no man pursueth:
but the righteous are bold as a lion…”
‘What we think, or what we know, or what we believe is, in the end, of little consequence. The only consequence is what we do.’ If you’re serious about succeeding at what you believe God called you to do, you must take three steps:
1) DO SOMETHING! ‘Nobody made a greater mistake, than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.’ Praying, planning and deliberating are all good, but there comes a point when you have to step out in faith and act. And if you’re naturally sedentary or easily discouraged, you’ll have to confront your fear and reluctance and take that first step. ‘All worthwhile men have good thoughts, good ideas and good intentions, but precious few of them ever translate those into action.’ God promised to part the waters of the Jordan River so that His people could go through and enter the Promised Land but the waters parted only after they stepped in.
The same principle applies to you. In the beginning you just need to get moving. Try different things. It’s easier to start doing something right if you’ve already started doing something. It’s easy to steer a car when it’s moving forward, but almost impossible when it’s standing still. In other words, if you don’t know exactly what to do, don’t let it keep you from doing something.
