Topic: Give It A Date
[Seeds of Destiny 27 October 2019 Devotional]
Whatever does not have a date is not permitted to come to pass
SCRIPTURE: To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Whatever does not have a date is not permitted to come to pass
Some years ago, while I was in courtship with my wife, we visited my mother and she called me aside and asked, ‘My son, when are you both thinking of settling down; when is the wedding?’ I told her, I wasn’t sure yet. Then, she looked at me and said, ‘Give it a date; whatever does not have a date is not permitted to come to pass.’ Incredible! That statement hit me like a bomb.
Get this: Vision alone is not enough; purpose or pursuit is not enough. It is when vision is married to timing that it delivers achievement.
Beloved, there must be a specific time or date allocated to every agenda or purpose on the earth; not to do that is an invitation to frustrations and regrets. Give a wedding date to that courtship; give that business plan a date for its commencement; give that desire to go back to school a date, etc. It is when you give it a date that God will know that you are serious. When you have given it a date, God will supply all you need to make that dream or vision a reality.
REMEMBER THIS: Whatever does not have a date is not permitted to come to pass
1.Refuse to live your life to chance or at random
2.Prayerfully give that project in your hands a date
3.Take action steps to see it come to pass
PRAYER: Lord, I refuse to live an aimless life. Help me not to miss the allocated time or date assigned for the fulfillment of every vision You have placed in my heart. Cause the date I have given to the events of my life to come to pass, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
