Cut to the Chase


"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot" (Eccl. 3:1-2, NIV).

God wants to do something extraordinary in your life. Are you ready to jump into action today? Maximize the day in front of you—stop procrastinating. Time is an asset you can never retrieve once it is gone. Your minutes, hours and days are essential commodities in your life. You can begin creating your tomorrow today. Whatever is in your future is decided in your present. The life that unfolds down the road is building with each day and every decision.

You pray today so tomorrow you will be ready to plan. You will prepare; you will jump into it, perform and produce. Today you get your praying on so tomorrow, it starts paying off in your life and the lives of others.

Move into action and watch someone get set free. Someone is going to get saved; there will be healing because of the work you are doing through prayer and practical service. Do not wait or hesitate in engaging the enemy on behalf of your dreams or someone's needs. Take him on with the confidence that is yours as a child of God. What you do today affects tomorrow and God will bless you in such a great and mighty way. It is time to chase after God's goodness for your life.
