The Waiting Strategy

In Mark Chapter 2 we read a story of four men who wanted to see their friend helped…

And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. When Jesus saw their faith…

  1. These men weren’t going to wait around for something to happen.
  2. These men weren’t going to be put off by obstacles.
  3. These men weren’t looking for reasons why they could not get what they wanted.
  4. The knew that Jesus was where their help was at and they TOOK ACTION on what they knew.
  5. Jesus didn’t respond to the need or the problem.
  6. It was when they took action that Jesus “SAW their faith” and responded.

Taking your Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities and WAITING is a strategy that DOES NOT work.

Taking ACTION based on the Knowledge, Experience and Abilities that you do have right now is a strategy that DOES work.

If you want to become a Millionaire For Jesus, you must take action.

For those of you who have been following my articles for a while, what action have you taken since the last time I wrote about taking action?

If you haven’t taken any action, notice that your financial situation is no better than it was the last time I wrote about taking action.

Take the leap of faith and take action now. Your only regret will be that you didn’t take action sooner.

In 2 Kings Chapter 3, we see a story about the army of Israel besieged by the Moabite army and the Israelites have no water. Finally in desperation they call for the prophet Elisha. He tells them, if you want water, you have to dig ditches all through this valley that you are in. AFTER they dug the ditches, THEN God sent the water.

Is your bank account on the “dry” side? Grab hold of faith and belief, take action and get to “digging your ditches” based on the Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities that you have right now. Once you’ve done your part, God will do his part. At the same time, God won’t do His part until you do your part.

If you want God to work in your finances, you’ve got to take action. The waiting strategy won’t work.

1 Corinthians 3:6 reveals to us, “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.

Now, we know that this setting of scripture is referring to winning souls to the Kingdom of God. But, at the same time, it reveals one of the laws of God. Action is required on our part before God will do His part.

God has given you Knowledge, Experience, and Abilities. He tells you to have faith in Him to work through you. For Him to work through you, you must take action.

2 Corinthians 1:19 let’s us know, “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

How is God to get glory from you if you won’t take action?

Go to prayer. Let God lead you. Listen to God as He talks to your heart and then take action on God’s prompting.

The waiting strategy doesn’t work.
