1 Samuel 14:6
Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”
The difference between where you are today and where you will be tomorrow is not just the thoughts you entertain, but the things that you act upon.
Nothing happens until you make a move. There is power in action. When you act you change the ingredients of the equation.
Don’t wait for stuff, you are supposed to take it by force. Your sole has to tread that piece of ground before it belongs to you. If you don’t move, God is limited. He will not violate your free will. He won’t even get born again on your behalf..
How you are acting today is a block on the construction site of your life.
It isn’t just about prayer, even though God never calls us to accomplish something that won’t force us to depend on Him, that why I have to pray, otherwise I might as well close shop now.
As well as prayer you will need to know how to activate the grace of God over your life. Find out what it will take to get to that place that you desire.
For example, the quickest way to develop any virtue is to act like you possess it.
And don’t say you want to be used by God is you aren’t willing to study the Word and spend time alone with God.
Don’t talk about living long if you aren’t doing the slightest thing to take care of your physical body.
Don’t talk abut financial freedom if you aren’t prepared to keep track of your spending.
Don’t think you will have a harmonious marriage if you still believe that you can act how you want and say what you want to your spouse.
My motto in life is EXECUTION! For without the discipline of getting things done, your future will look exactly like your present! If you want something different in life to what you have now, you have to be prepared to do something you have never done before.
Ideas are worthless without corresponding action. We can talk all we like about going to the North Pole, but if we continue to head south, we will never get there!
Act today in line with what you believe that God will do for you.
