UTILIZE DELAYS

Read in your own language

April 19, 2023

Scriptural Text:
Matthew 25:5 (NKJV)
“Now while the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept.”

 

 

More often than not, well thought out plans experience setbacks, resulting in unprecedented delays. A delayed flight, a pending transaction, a postponed event, an overdue response etc., can suddenly throw you into an unplanned waiting period. The good news is that such delays can be utilized to your advantage.

The first step in utilizing delays is preparing for them. You can do this by predetermining what you would do in that instance.

For example, you can position investment resources around you by default, so that you can turn your attention to a book,
or an online learning resource.

Such unexpected free times can also be used to cover up for lost times in the place of fellowship with God.

In contrast, our opening text tells us about the virgins who slumbered and slept while the bridegroom delayed in coming.
This is a wrong response in waiting.

The delays you experience are designed to work in your favour, if only you would take advantage of them. Utilize times of seeming delay to review your plans, pray, study, or finish up pending tasks. This is another important key to maximizing your time and optimizing your productivity.

Father in the name of Jesus, give me the wisdom to strategically utilize every delay to my advantage, in the name of Jesus.

As with many African countries, syncretism is a reality as many people mix their cultural practices with Christianity.

2. Prayer for the leaders: Father, we ask that you would put the right people in influential positions in this nation; men and women who will uphold the truth and promote righteousness, in the name of Jesus.Father, we ask that you would put the right people in influential positions in this nation; men and women who will uphold the truth and promote righteousness, in the name of Jesus.

🕍PRAYER FOR ISRAEL – ( Psalm 122:6 )
