Day 136

“I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.”  Psalms 119:60

The psalmist has prayed, reflected and acted in this section of Psalm 119.  His heart has been affected and he is making the needed changes without division of thought.  And he is doing it immediately.

We love to procrastinate don’t we?

We know what needs to be done and we have good intentions, but we lollygag around and leave off what needs to be done until tomorrow – or when we feel better – or when we have more money – or when we are not traveling – or when we are done with the school year – or when we have kids or don’t have kids – etc. etc. etc.

Did you know there will never be the perfect day to accomplish something?  The unexpected is ALWAYS going to happen.  It is inevitable.  So why not make right now the opportune moment and begin to obey God’s Word?

I commented to my daughter recently that our spiritual situations can change from one day to the next by simply deciding to get up and read the Bible, pray and obey.

But we put it off and a year will go by and we are no farther in our walk with God than we were last year.  And so many opportunities will be wasted.

Quit leaving your spiritual life on the back burner!  Make it a priority!  ACT!

Today is the day that could begin a true change if you will seize the moment and quit procrastinating.

Is there someone you need to call and make things right?  Dial their number and get at it!  Your prayers can’t be heard and answered if you harbor sin in your heart.

Is there something you need to remove from your life?  Get busy and erase it!  You can’t move forward if you are chained to sin.

Is there something God called you to do?  Don’t delay!  Do it!

Until Next Time, Lord willing,



One thought on “Day 136

    If I could take a knife, open the minds of all my teachers, this one thing I would pour into their brains. It just takes that first step to get to the other to get the job done, day in and day out. The result after many years is truly knowing Him better. When you walk into the day having visited God first, the journey for the rest of the day is more productive. We have His ear but first we must have His mouth as He speaks to us. Why would someone ignore Him? Makes no sense…..unless they are not born again and have no desire to know someone they don’t know.
