I read recently when PAPA God tells us to “go”, we must do so without question or doubt! Otherwise our hesitancy becomes disobedience. And we know what disobedience can mean. . .
In the early days of my Christian walk learning to do as told, I would just “go” when instructed to do something by the still small voice. The “still small voice” was not so “small” in those days. It was loud and abundantly clear Whose Voice was sending me forth! It was never anything major or earth-shattering. Just small things to test my willingness to obey.
Learning to “go”, whether divinely inspired or urged by self-motivation, is vitally important to success in life. All aspects of our lives. Achieving life goals and arriving at our designated destiny is not inspired by inertia. But it is impacted by a lack of dogged determination.
Recall the lame man brought to Jesus by his friends? They were eager he be cured of whatever kept him from going on with life. Jesus could have made “magic potions”, slathering them over the man’s body while chanting change mantra’s of unintelligible words. Such would certainly have charmed the audience who were eager to see a “miracle” performed.
Instead Jesus took the man’s hand and simply said. . . “take up your mat and walk!” In today’s words, that would translate. .. “Get up and go!”
Sometimes that’s all we need. Someone of great importance who simply says “get up and walk”. In other words – GO! “Get it done. Stop wasting time day dreaming, worrying, being bound up with what I call “internal constipation”. While you wait mulling over, life is moving on and you’re missing golden opportunities designed just for you!”
How would you respond to such direct directions? Even from someone whose advice and opinion you hold in high regard? Would you rise up full of determination and race off as told? Or sulk in the weeds while angrily bemoaning such directness?
Here’s the value in today’s “Thursday Thoughts”. Our success is inextricably linked to how we respond to a direct command of “get up and go”! TWEET THIS
Not much more one can say on the subject after that! We either truly deeply, without reservation, desire SUCCESS.
Or we don’t!
How we and those about us know our intentions is whether we pick up our mats, rise to our feet and scurry off in the appointed direction. If we’re still sitting minutes after the invitation to “GO” is issued, we’re not serious about success. Success in any aspect of our lives.
So what will it be for you? Will you put on your walking shoes and be ready for the green flag to drop? Or will you be found gazing into the future while still hugging the rug on which you lounge!
The only person who can make that decision is you!
Now GO and make it. . .
