Bible Reading: Proverbs 30:30, Number 25:2-8

Memory verse:     See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers-to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob-to give to them and their descendants after them. Deuteronomy 1:8(NKJV)

 It happened some time ago. I was in an audience listening to someone speak. The speaker got out his wallet & pulled out a 500 Naira note. Holding it up, he asked, “Who wants this 500 naira note?”

Lots of hands were raised. A slow chorus began to build as people began to shout, “Me!” “Me!” I began to wonder who the speaker would give the money. And I also secretly wondered (and I am sure others did too) why he would simply give away 500 naira.

Even as the shouts of “I want it” grew louder, I noticed a young woman running down the aisle. She ran up onto the stage, went up to the speaker, and grabbed the 500 naira note from his hand. “Well done, young lady,” said the speaker. The speaker simply says “Most of us just sit and wait for good things to happen. That’s of no use. You’ve got to make things happen. Make a move”. ‘Simply thinking about doing something is of no use and not good enough’. Our lives are like that. We all see opportunities around us. We all want the good things. But the problem is we don’t take action. Get up, and do something about that dream and vision God gave you. Don’t worry about what other people might think.

Action word:                  Desire is never enough. Take action!      

Prayer point:

  1. Holy Spirit, provoke me to always take action in the right direction, in the name of Jesus.
  2. Every power of Horeb that has held me on the same spot for too long, summersault and die, in the name of Jesus  (Deut.1:6).
