-Deuteronomy 20:5-7 NKJV
In this scripture the officials were preparing the Israelites for Holy war yet in doing so they were more than likely sending a great number of their able bodied men back home! Can you notice the theme?
It's time to take care of home! Stop putting off what needs to happen today! Why? Because your next moment is not promised and not everything and everybody is gonna wait on you to get it together!
I don't know what your home is right now but I have some questions for you...
What are you waiting for? It's time to do it already!
What task are you trying to avoid? Please take care of it "lest another man complete it".
Has God told you to fix a relationship by forgiving or some other action? Take care of it lest you miss your opportunity altogether! The consequences may not be worth it!
Has God asked you to come to him in prayer and through consistent reading of his word? Handle that lest you face persecution or a trial ill equipped!
Has God told you to stop sleeping with that person? Take heed lest you find yourself with an incurable and/or deadly disease!
Has God told you to stop sleeping with that married individual? Be obedient lest you find yourself on the newest episode of Snapped...as the deceased.
Has God told you, you need to get to work on time? You better make it happen lest you miss out on that promotion he's been trying to set up for you.
Has God told you to use your free time to finish that book, patent that idea, start that program or business? You better make it happen lest another man complete it and you no longer have the rights!
What's my point??? Make it happen lest you lose the opportunity God is laying in your lap! We're totally in this together so let's get to work! What are you waiting for?! ;)
