Topic: BE TIMELY
“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” JOHN 9:4
Most believers do not understand the place of timing, mostly because they don’t really understand how much God values time.
Doing what God has told you to do at your own time could sometimes be detrimental. However this is the case with many Christians today.
Jesus, just before He was to be crucified decided to go and pray and He asked some of His disciples to accompany Him which they did. However when they got to the place, the disciples rather than pray, they were sleeping and Jesus came and woke them, asking them to pray so that they do not fall into temptation, but they went back to sleep. Jesus came the second time but the same thing happened, the third time when they were about to get up and pray Jesus said unto them, sleep on for the adversary is already here. (Luke 22:44-47).
Jesus was always timely, no wonder He said, “I must do the work of Him that sent me while it is still day, for the night cometh when no man can work again.” John 9:4. This topic stretches forth to those whom God has also delegated with assignments in His house. Some do not take responsibility of their assignment in Gods house, they trivialize it thinking there is time and before they know it they lose their place. This is what happened to Saul. 1 Samuel 16:1a “And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel?”
The Lord said to Samuel how long will thou mourn for Saul. This means Samuel had always been praying for Saul, standing in gap for mercy on him, but Saul refused to get it and before he knew it he had lost his place.
Choose to be timely today, understand the times and season we are in and the urgency. Work with Gods timing, handle your assignment in Gods house like the master is coming the next hour for the bible says happy is that man whose master shall find doing the work when He shall return.
SCRIPTURAL REF: MATTHEW 24: 45-51
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I thank you for your word. I walk with the consciousness of your time today. Thank you for high sensitivity to the move of your Spirit in our time and season that causes me not to miss my time of manifestation in Jesus name. Amen
