Do it today!

“He said, ‘Tomorrow.’” Exodus 8:10 NKJV

Every plague God sent on Egypt mocked one of their gods. For instance, the Egyptians deified lice, so God sent them a lot of lice—and frogs. Finally, Pharaoh called for Moses and said, “All right, I give up.” But when...Every plague God sent on Egypt mocked one of their gods. For instance, the Egyptians deified lice, so God sent them a lot of lice—and frogs. Finally, Pharaoh called for Moses and said, “All right, I give up.” But when Moses asked him, “When do you want me to get rid of the frogs?” Pharaoh’s response was classic; he said, “Tomorrow.” He must have been insane! Why would you wait any longer to have the frogs removed? But we do the same, don’t we? We procrastinate by putting off the changes we know would be good for us. Maybe we’re unconcerned. Maybe we’re too lethargic to change. Maybe we’re fearful because we don’t know what the changes will entail. Maybe we’re just too proud and stubborn. Whatever the reason—we procrastinate. NASA space engineers tell us most of the fuel that is used in a rocket launch is burned during the initial few seconds of liftoff. It takes enormous energy and thrust to move the rocket off the launching pad. Once it’s moving and headed for orbit, it needs much less fuel and is simpler to control and direct. It has conquered inertia. It’s one thing to know God can solve your problem and change your life. It’s another matter to overcome your inertia and let Him begin to do it now! We keep saying, “One of these days….” The truth is, Jesus Christ has the power to make changes in your life today. He will give you the power to begin and the power to keep going. It’s not too late. He can put your life back together again. So the word for you today is—do it today!
