Is Tomorrow the Perfect Day?

Dec 02

What are you waiting for? Does the perfect time to do something always seems like tomorrow? What in the world was Pharaoh thinking when he told Moses to get rid of the plague of frogs tomorrow? Girlfriends, I am confident every one of us would have said, “Go, go, go! Get it done right now!” If only all the procrastinating some of us are guilty of would be as obvious as foolishly “spending one more night with the frogs.”

I love what Matthew Henry says concerning the eighteenth chapter of Judges.

“God has given it into your hands, and you may have it for the taking.’’ They stir them up to the undertaking: “Arise, that we may go up against them, let us go about it speedily and resolutely.’’ They expostulate with them for their delays, and chide them out of their sluggishness: Are you still? Be not slothful to go. Men need to be thus stirred up to mind even their interest. Heaven is a very good land, where there is no want of any thing; our God has, by the promise, given it into our hands; let us not then be slothful in making it sure, and laying hold on eternal life, but strive to enter. – Matthew Henry

Dearest girlfriends, I pray we would stop thinking about and start doing the tasks our heavenly Father has for us.

Moses said to Pharaoh, “I leave to you the honor of setting the time for me to pray for you and your officials and your people that you and your houses may be rid of the frogs, except for those that remain in the Nile.” “Tomorrow,” Pharaoh said. Moses replied, “It will be as you say, so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God. The frogs will leave you and your houses, your officials and your people; they will remain only in the Nile.” ~ Exodus 8:9-11 NIV
“Let’s go!” the five men said. “We saw some very good land with enough room for all of us, and it has everything we will ever need. What are you waiting for? Let’s attack and take it. You’ll find that the people think they’re safe, but God is giving the land to us.” ~ Judges 18:9-10 CEV
Don’t put it off. Do it now! Don’t rest until you do. ~ Proverbs 6:4 NLT
