MAINTAIN THE DRIVE.
For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter, though a person may be weighed down by misery (Ecclesiastes 8:6 NIV).
God may give you a vision or direction on something and you may not follow it, because there’s no drive from within. If the drive isn’t there to fulfil the vision, you’ll not fulfil it. In fact, the vision could be on your conscience for some time until you harden your conscience against it. You’re aware the Spirit of God told you to do something, but you didn’t do it; one year has passed, and it’s not like you’re about to do it. Presently, the opportunity to do it has even become hazy, yet you’re not sure how to go about it anymore.
This is what happens with many people. When the timing for the vision came, different things came up and they got distracted; as a result, they missed it. Such people are like Peter, who stepped on the water to walk to Jesus, but when he took his eyes off the Master, the waves got his attention, and he began to sink.
Never allow anything distract or delay you from doing whatever the Lord tells you to do. Whatever He tells you to do or whatever guidance He gives you at any particular time is what you need; act quickly and don’t delay. Refuse to take your eyes off your focus, despite the contrary winds, and your faith will produce result. Once you know the Holy Spirit has ministered to you, giving you instructions on what to do, stay focused, and act.
If you delay, your faith for it may dissipate; the inspiration may no longer be there, and when you later want to do it without the inspiration, there’ll be no success. So, maintain the drive through your confessions; keep talking to yourself about fulfilling that God-given vision: the guidance that He’s given you. Keep saying it; stir your spirit with it, declaring that it’s done, and nothing is going to stop it. As you talk like that, you’re maintaining the drive, till the vision is fulfilled. Hallelujah!
Dear Lord, thank you for your Spirit in my life that helps me maintain inspiration and sets me in the direction of your perfect will. I’m zealous and fervent, consumed with passion for the Gospel, and the things you’ve placed in my heart to accomplish for your glory. I’m winning every day, and making progress with giant strides, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
