“He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” Proverbs 10:4 KJV
It’s important to stay faithful and diligent with your God-Breathed assignment. What is your assignment? What mountain(s) has God called you to climb and conquer? What enemies has He Called you to defeat? What battles has He Called you to lead? It’s your time to get rid of the spiritual slack in your life and stay diligent to what God has Called and Commanded you to do. Your success is in your diligence. As you consistently submit to and obey the Voice of God, following His Commands, for your life, you will prosper. It’s time to lead and leave behind the old way of doing things and diligently birth out that which God has planted and stored in you. Stay diligent. Focus on your God Given Assignment and diligently pursue His Word.
Harvest Now – Reap Now and Cast Again.
“He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.” Proverbs 10:5 KJV
When Harvest season comes and it’s to reap that which God has Promised – you cannot be lazy. Honor God by reaping the Harvest now. Ask God for the wisdom to reap. Seek God for the prime time (His Time) to reap. Ask God to lead your hands and your heart to reach and reap for Him. Whatever area God has Called you to, it’s important to stay faithful, planted and ready to reap, when He says to reap. “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;” Matthew 9:37 KJV
Correct and Rebuke Every Area of Slack and Delay.
“Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:” Proverbs 6:6 KJV
Wisdom comes from God. When God gives you a task or an assignment, it’s important to understand that He will grant you the wisdom, strength and integrity to complete the assignment at hand. God has gifted you to create systems, processes and favor with people that will enable you to complete the Assignment that He gives. Your God-Given Assignment was given to you and ordained by God specifically for you. So if you lack wisdom, on how to start and to execute that God Given vision, business, ministry, book or dream, begin by asking God for the wisdom to start, execute and follow through: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5 KJV “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.” Proverbs 8:12 KJV
Launch Into The Deep. The Harvest Is Waiting.
“Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.” Luke 5:4-7 KJV
The Harvest is waiting on your obedience. After Jesus released the Word to Simon, “Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.” Simon obeyed and executed upon the Word and credibility of Christ. When you step out, into the deep, and cast your nets, when God commands, He will fill your boat with the Harvest that’s assigned to you – listen for His Word. Obey God’s Command. When God says “Go”, launch and cast at His Command. Now it’s time to Go. Go when God tells you to move and to execute on an or Destiny changing, generation shifting, life transforming idea or vision. Your success is in the Go. Follow His Go and submit your hands to be used for this Great Harvest.
