ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 30 November 2019
There is a time and season for everything
Scripture Reference: “To everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for every purpose under the heaven. There is a time to be comfortable and there is a time to rise up and get things done. I really want to challenge you this morning and let you understand that there will be times where we have to fight in prayers, where we have to say ‘enough is enough’ to the enemy, where we have to take risks and do something that looks intimidating, and the like. There will also be times where we have to be quiet and ‘refrain from talking’, there will be times of isolation from friends in order to get our lives and destinies in line with God’s will and times of pain and sacrifice. We have to learn to read the seasons of our lives and seize the moment bravely.
How many opportunities have you lost because you were not willing to seize the moment? Maybe it has to do with forging ahead with that profession, business or career, even when it seems beyond your capacity or experience. There are so many opportunities we lose, not because we are unqualified but because of fear and lack of confidence. Boldness has genius in it. David seized the moment at a particular time and that led to his enthronement. His father had sent him to his brothers at the war front and on getting there, he overheard the arrogant threats of Goliath the Philistine, and that became an opportunity for him. Despite the intimidations of his brother, he seized the moment, in faith and complete trust in God and the rest is history.
Daily digest: Read 1 Samuel 17: 20-58
Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for Your unfailing love for me, Your blessings, and goodness. Thank You for Your faithfulness to guide me and see me through times of uncertainty, for lifting me up, and setting me on high. Help me be a good steward and to sow wisely. In Christ’s Name. Amen.
