Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast for me; and neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. I also and my maids will fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law; and if I perish, I perish. (Esther 4:16 AMP)
We will never really see the power of God in its full effect if we do not take action on the Word of God which is the seed for experiencing the power of God. The providence of God is acted out when you act!
One key reason we often don’t act on the word is the fear of failing. I know I struggle with that one! I hate failing so much that on many occasions I didn’t try. What if it goes wrong? What if it doesn’t work? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I mess it all up?
I have come to realise that if we will see the manifestation of what God says we can become, we will need to come to the place where you say if I PERISH, I PERISH! We would need to come to the place where the we look the worst case scenario in the eye, and choose to defy it!
The worst case scenario is like a bully. It stares you down on the play ground of life. It taunts you and challenges your courageous advances. But once you choose to look the worst case scenario in the eye and authentically communicate to it that you are no longer afraid of what happens if “it” happen – IF I PERISH, I PERISH – you will be free from that bully. And equipped to truly act on that Word!
Hey, what do you want? The life you have now or the life you are dreaming of? Action is the vehicle that transports you from where you are to where you want to be. Act now! Every time you procrastinate on taking an action because of some area of uncertainty, what you are choose your current location over what I see in my dreams!
The best thing about action for the believer is that it is not by power or by might but by the Spirit of God! God’s Spirit will support you incredibly every time you act on Gods Word!
