Making the most of your time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is" .....Ephesians 5:16,17

In God's appointed course for you, it may be that today was to have been the greatest day of your life, yet you would let it slip by as if it were just another day. The man whose today is like his yesterday lacks a sense of God's timing. No born again Christian should be content with their present obtainment; for to be satisfied with what you are is to be complacent and a loser of God-sent opportunities.

Let us suppose that on September 13 the Lord puts it into my heart to go and seek out a certain person who is later destined to become a mighty instrument in His hands for the salvation of souls in five years time. To obey may be the greatest single act of service in my life. But suppose on this day I am distracted by other things and do not go because I put it off. I have let slip an opportunity and perhaps lost thereby a powerful instrument for the Kingdom of God. Trouble is such occasions do not wait for us, they pass us by so very quickly, never to return.

Today in the Church as the body of Christ, Satan is manipulating God's people to miss God's will through distractions and complacency. Never before has there been so much to distract God's people from doing what God really wants to be done! Procrastination leading to complacency runs rampant throughout the body of Christ today in every country on earth. God is moving on all the time but we don't; we tend to want to stay where we are and with what we have got or have not got! We stagnate because of the distraction of these 'other things' that have become a barrier towards God's on-going plan and purpose for our lives.

So next time when God moves, let us move with Him instantly. No God sent opportunity must be allowed to elude us if we desire the best of what God has for us and for our lives this day. Trust Him fully by depending on His means and His supply. God's time is always in the present. God's timing is always now! He is forever the almighty "I am", not the "I was" or the "I will be"!
