If God supplies the power, would you supply the will?
Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. James 4:17
Are you one of those people who believes “Put off until tomorrow what you can do today”? This is one of those times when the fingers pointing back at me outnumber the one that’s pointing to you! What am I talking about? Procrastination.
Did you know procrastination is a sin? I say that because sin is not only doing what’s wrong; it’s failing to do what you know you ought to do. Procrastination and disobedience are just different shades of the same sin. I heard a quote once that said it well:
“When you have a job to do,
Begin this very hour.
You supply the will,
God supplies the power.”
That is the will power we need to instantly obey!
Has a certain task been hounding you? Confess your procrastination as sin. And act now. Don’t hesitate. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow may never come. Today is the day!
