Get on with it!

Scripture: He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:7,8 NIV

Scripture: Then they prayed, “Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us.”  Acts 1:24 NIV

Observation: I can’t waste time trying to figure out God’s plan for the future because it could hold my attention and I could get side-tracked from my true purpose.  The Lord has empowered me with the Holy Spirit to give me the strength and courage to carry it out his plan.

Application: I need to remember how special it is to be “his chosen”  and concentrate on making each moment count.  I need to ask the Lord to help me with my attitude and allow the Holy Spirit to shine through me in every situation.  I must take part in activities that grow His kingdom for his glory.

Prayer: Father God, help me to see and have confidence to pursue the work you have called me to do.  Help me focus on your word that brings Christ-like behavior and leaves the when and where to you. Amen
