Work Before You Work
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word – it is so practical. It tells you what it takes to succeed. Proverbs 21:5 – The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty. Proverbs 12:14 – From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things as surely as the work of his hands rewards him. Use your mouth, and get to work. But before you work, work. Some people work, only to find out they are working on the wrong thing, or the way they are working, is futile, lacking the plan or strategy crucial for success. The plans of the diligent lead to profit. Work before you work. If you were as diligent in your planning as you are in your working – it would lead to much more profit. Diligence in planning is diligence with God. Commit your way to the LORD and your plans will succeed. You can work hard and long to no avail. But if you first work at getting His plans for you – your efforts will not be in vain. Commit, roll down together with Him, spend that PiVAT time before dinner, and check back with Him first thing in the morning, and throughout the day…so your plans are His plans. Those are the ones that will succeed. So you know what He’s not calling you to put effort in, as much as what He has called you to work on with all diligence. He will lead you in this hour. It’s not a burden, it’s a joy and blessing. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He multiplies your effort, if you will first put in the effort to seek His face, His will and His plans. Praying that today you will work before you work. That you will be diligent in the planning, and then be diligent in the doing. So everything you put your hand to, is what He directs in His perfect time, in the way that works the best, and brings the most wonderful result. So you will profit in every way, in the Spirit first, which overflows into the natural.
Love you all,
