“BOAST NOT THYSELF OF TOMORROW; FOR THOU KNOWEST NOT WHAT A DAY MAY BRING FORTH” (Proverbs 27:1).
Mortals do not know what a day will bring forth. This is why we mustn’t act as if tomorrow belongs to us. None of us has hold on the future. “What you procrastinate today is what you can die without achieving because you don’t know what will happen tomorrow. Procrastination is an enticing but very dagerous habbit which must be avoided by everyone who hopes to make the most of his or her time and life. To overcome procrastination, therefore, there are a number of things you shouldn’t do.
* Postpone till a more convenient time what you can do today; it will make you miss out in God’s plan(Acts 24:25). * Regret over lost time and opportunities(Isaiah 43:18).
* Observe the weather befeore going to embark on your routine activities(Proverbs 26:13).
* Refuse to do today what your hand finds to do. Realize you only have today at your disposal(Proverbs 27:1).
* Abandon what is committed to your hand. Do it wholeheartedly; it’s rewarding(Ecclesiastes 9:10).
* Say anything is “impossible.” Rather seek strength from the Lord to do today what should be done(Psalm 68:35b).
* Tactically avoid duties. Try hard till you accomplish every required task(2Timothy 2:5). * Ignore the word “do it now” but impress it in your heart(1Samuel 21:8b). * Nag over what is to be done no matter how difficult(Philippians 2:14). * Associate yourself to lazy people(1Corinthians 15:33).
* Transfer to another what you can do effectively(2Samuel 11:1-4). * Engross yourself with past success, but look ahead(Philippians 3:13).
Is there any tasks you has left undone because you felt there was still plenty of time to do it, or because it seemed difficult? Stop and simply say a short prayer asking for grace to get all tasks done(Philippians 4:13). And with a positive attitude go on and do it. You are sure to do it in good time. The Lord is your strength. Act now!
