Move It!

In this time of "recession," we who labor for the sake of the gospel may be swayed by reports of what is going wrong in the world. In a time of massive layoffs, financial crisis, foreclosures, widespread anxiety, and general uncertainty, we cannot allow ourselves to be moved away from our priorities. This is not a time for dance ministers to sink into oblivion. It's time to move!

If God has called us into leadership, we must continue to pray and seek His instruction regarding how He would have us to operate in this season. Procrastination is no longer an option. Obedience is the pivotal point which will open doors or keep them closed. We must walk in Divine favor now more than ever before.

Many things that were once too expensive to obtain are now more affordable. If we continue to practice faithful stewardship, we will be able to accomplish the assignments given to us with minimal difficulty. Honestly answer the following questions:

What is the Lord telling you to do now that you have waited to long to act on?

Have you managed your finances well?

Are you serving in the area that you know God has called you to?

Is fear hindering you from starting that business or opening that facility?

Do you constantly make excuses for why you have not finished the work you started?

Have you prevented forging new relationships due to past hurts?

Are you still dreaming about something that should already be a reality?

This is not the season to delay! We can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us. We must pray for wisdom and guidance regarding any endeavor that we have set our hearts and minds on. When the Lord calls a thing into existence- IT IS SO!

New King James Version

Joshua 1:8-9
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

Proverbs 12:24
The hand of the diligent will rule, But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.
