We can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before we decide to be happy, to live life, to serve God.
Too many people are waiting for the right moment, the right situation to come along, before they take action or do something. Some are habitual waiters and not doers. It’s as if that before I act on the word of God, circumstances must be favorable to me! God’s word or acting on God’s word, doing God’s word, is not dependent on circumstances being favorable.
It’s the word of God that changes circumstances and can change the outcome. You’ve heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. I believe it. It is insane, but people keep doing it. When I have more, I’ll do something. Why are we waiting to receive God’s blessings?
Years ago, I was going into prisons and teaching the word. At the time, I would shrink back from teaching them to not really believing God for more than safety. As I was meditating one day, I believe God gave me a thought — If my word doesn’t work in there (prisons), then it doesn’t work anywhere. In other words, we can’t afford to wait for perfect circumstances to become doers of God’s word. It works anywhere and everywhere — where men will be bold enough to act on it.
Let’s not wait to live for God or be happy. Let’s live now — no more waiting.
Just a thought,
