SuccessLight Weekly Devotional 4

"Blessed are those who hear the word and keep it." (Luke 11:28)
Let me ask you a question...do you keep your word? Do you do the things you say you are going to do, when you say you are going to do them? Luke 11:28 are the words of our Master and Lord Jesus Christ. It points to a situation that we all face with Success...procrastination, and delaying action. In Matthew 25, the story of the virgins and the lampstands is a great example of how Jesus feels about delaying what we are supposed to do. The virgins delayed, and were late for the wedding. The bridegroom replies to the virgins, "I tell you the truth, I don't know you."
What are you avoiding that truly needs to be done? Do you realize it is costing God His Glory? Everything you Succeed at doing, brings Glory to God. What are you avoiding doing? If Jesus were standing right beside you, what would you tell Him as the reason you have delayed bringing Him Glory? Keep your word and do what you said you were going to do....at the time you said you said you would do it...Jesus is watching.
Father, I just pray to remove any delaying actions from us, and ask You to touch our actions today and pour Your Grace and Compassion in so we may move NOW and bring Glory to Your Name. Shine the Light of Your Success Lord in our life, in Jesus' Name we pray, Amen.
