ONE OF THE ENEMY’S FAVOURITE WILES IS “WAIT AWHILE”!
Procrastination is the Devil’s own tool to get people to put things off until later. It’s one of his cleverest weapons! If he knows he can’t STOP us, he tries to DELAY us. If he can’t discourage us from doing something, he just gets us to postpone it & put it off.–Because all that is necessary for his evil to triumph, is for us to do nothing!
We need to remind ourselves constantly that the most precious thing we have outside of our souls is our TIME! Time wasted is gone forever, & though it is easy to waste, it can be pretty expensive. Time well-spent may cost a lot in effort & strength & sacrifice & love, but it pays eternal dividends!
If you put off the job the Lord has given you until everything else is done, it will NEVER get done, because everything else is never done! Whatever we do, we must do quickly, as we haven’t much time left! Tomorrow is too late, & it’s almost too late now!
“The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power,
To tell just when the hands will stop,
At late or early hour.
NOW is the only time you own!
Live, love, toil with a will!
Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still!”
