What Are You Waiting For?

     I know that some people might not believe in themselves, but I believe God has birthed a great calling and purpose in every believer.  John 14:12 states "...He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;..."  There is so much possibility in each of us, but most of us are waiting for ideal conditions to get started. 
     I am aware that we all have the best of intentions in the midst of all of this.  Yet hopes and visions only go so far without actions.  King Solomon reflected on a similar situation years ago.  In Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NLT) we read, "Farmers who wait for pefect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest." So, if you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.  There are certain ways to get to the point that God is calling us to.  Let's all agree to get back to the old paths that the elders started years ago.  They lived and breathed this doctrine.  Let's make Jesus the center of our life and church; along with devoting more time to praying, reading our Bible, and fasting.  We need to make ourselves available now for what God is calling each of us to do.  
     I can't help but wonder how much impact we could have in the world today if we stopped waiting and finally start doing what God has called us to do.  I challenge each of you to step up and fill the shoes of the elders and make your own foot print upon the world.
