Devotional – Stop Waiting!
He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap. Ecclesiastes 11:4 ESV
Are you waiting for the absolute perfect moment to obey God’s calling? Are you waiting for the absolute perfect moment to witness to your neighbor, coworker or classmate? Did you wake up this morning, look at the calendar and think, “Nope, the conditions are not right today. I’ll wait for a better opportunity.”
The farmer who waits for the absolutely perfect weather conditions to sow the seed will never plant. Just as the farmer who waits for the perfect weather to reap the harvest will have his crops rot in the field.
…for the conditions to be right to obey God’s calling in your life! Step out in faith today! Stop waiting for the perfect opportunity to witness! Share the gospel today!
Jesus Christ said, “Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.” John 4:35 ESV
Stop waiting! Otherwise the crops will rot in the field, the harvest will pass, and it will be too late.
