Spirit and Life Devotional: Take Action Now


I'm inspired by the story of Madison. At the age of 15, Madison Robinson has made sales of over a million Dollars! She came up with the idea for Fish Flops at the age of 8. At 8! You'll agree with me that many people have fantastic ideas, the difference between them and Madison is that she started at 8.

Statistics have shown that about 95% of people procrastinate occasionally. What it simply means is that many of us have delayed, and are delaying our successes. Listen, you won't spend much time praying and confessing for success and prosperity if you'll take action quickly.

For those of us who use God as excuse for inaction, here's what God said: "He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favourable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap." Ecclesiastes 11:4. The Message says, "Don't sit there watching the wind. Do your own work. Don't stare at the clouds. Get on with your life." Take action now!

Permit me to end this with a favourite quote: "Quit making excuses, putting it off, complaining about it, dreaming about it, whining about it, crying about it, believing you can't, worrying if you can, waiting until you're older, skinnier, richer, braver, or all around better...suck it up, hold on tight, say a prayer, make a plan and just do it!"
