Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest. (Ecclesiastes 11:4, NLT)
Are you waiting for perfect time, a time when everything is calm, before you act? From the little experience I have had on this planet, I have never seen anything like perfect time. All of us have needs to be met. Bill Gates has his needs, so is the poorest person. The difference between the rich and the poor is that the rich don’t wait for perfect weather to plant. They plant their seeds and pray to God for rain.
Dear friend, the right time to act is now. Don’t sit there watching the wind. Do your own work. Don’t stare at the clouds. Get on with your life. Don’t say “if this thing goes through, then I would do this or that”, if I can go to the university, then I can achieve this/that”, “If I could get this money, car, child, etc, then I could this or that”. God wants people who walk by faith.
Be encouraged to do the little you can today and God will bless the work of your hands. For we live by believing and not by seeing. (2 Corinthians 5:7, NLT)
Good Word! So many times we have the faith but never put the action behind it. That’s when our faith becomes dead. We shouldn’t let our faith become wishful thinking.
That’s very true Veronica. “We shouldn’t let our faith become wishful thinking”.
Jesus said “We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.” (John 9:4 NLT). The right time is Now.
God bless you.
