Do you not say, It is still four months until the harvest time comes? Look! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting.JOHN 4:35
We love to put things off into the future, “when the opportunity comes again, I will do it” or “when I have the time”.
I do hope you have noticed how seldom that opportunity does come again. Stop procrastinating, get on with the things that need attention, do them now. You will make yourself miserable by not attending them when the Spirit of God is dealing with you to do it.
Jesus says that the harvest is ripe now. Don’t waste so much time waiting for things to come your way when actually they are waiting for you to go out and get them.
If someone asks you about the Lord, invite him or her to pray with you to receive Him into his or her heart, as you may never have the opportunity again. Do it then. You may have been thinking about someone and you know you need to give him or her a call – why are you waiting? The Lord will not waste your time.
Teach yourself to be prompt to obey the Lord. It could be urgent and you could certainly be saving someone from trouble.
Lift up your eyes and see your harvest is ripe. Do it now.
