Today’s exhortation – Carpe Diem!
Many of us have dreams, visions and aspirations but have been procrastinating. This may be due to reasons such as fear of failure, lack of funds, motivation or honestly speaking laziness! The Lord impressed on me that those ideas, dreams, visions or ideas are seeds and unless we plant them, they may remain a seed! The life of the plant is in the seed and unless it’s planted, it won’t bear fruit! Sometimes we want handouts when He wants to give us an abundance which is in the seed! And if we don’t plant these seeds, they will be given to someone else to plant them. How many times have we sat on our ideas until it’s too late? We had an idea to do something but put it off until one day we turned on the TV and saw someone had developed it and made it successful!
Before Abraham was called by God to leave his people and go to Canaan, his father Terah was called but he didn’t go (Genesis 11:32-33). So God called Abraham and he went and went on to become the father or many nations. It’s time to step out and make our dreams and ideas happen before someone else does! However, we’ve to remember that seed to harvest is a process! It may not be instant or easy, “But you must remain strong and not become discouraged. Your actions will be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7). Carpe Diem! Amen.
