Day 91 – Ecclesiastes 11:4
“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 – New Living Translation)
“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” To me, I seldom wait for the perfect conditions to do things, I just do whatever I need to do. I do not care about what others think. I do not care what others say. As long as I think it’s the right thing to do at the moment, I’ll do it. Period. I thought if I’m being put in a position, God will give me strength to overcome any obstacles. So, I don’t need to concern too much about my abilities and capabilities. I just do whatever I can and use whatever abilities God has given me. However, if people ask me, “Is this what God wants you to do?” My answer would be, “I believe so.” Actually, I’m not really certain. When I think deeply, I think I don’t really know if something is truly what God wants me to do. How would I know anyways? I believe I would have a better discernment if I know my Father. If I know my Father well enough, I should have no problem doing things that would please Him or not doing things that would hurt Him. When it comes to the point to decide which ministry I should be involved, my question should not be “Is this what God want me to do?” Rather, I should ask myself, “Do I know my Father?” and “Do I know His heart?”
Do you wait for the perfect condition to do things? What steps do you need to take today to start serving?
