Daily Wisdom Devotion: Crushing Procrastination
2 Corinthians 8:10-12, Proverbs 20:4, John 9:4, Hebrews 3:12, Romans 10:15
Men and brethren, time and again we must be aware of The Dangers of Procrastination and cultivate the principles of how to Crush Procrastination before it terminates our opportunities because Procrastination as Enemy of Achievement and Progress. Why? Opportunities are messengers of greatness. They are Angels standing in the shadow and waiting for your whistle to start running. Let me say that the greatest enemy of champions is staying in the valley of procrastination. It is an opportunity’s assassin, the thief of time. It is the grave in which Greatness is buried. The truth about procrastination is that, until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. The habit of always putting off an experience until you can afford it, or until the time is right, or until you know how to do it is one of the greatest burglars of joy and the joy and excitement that comes from your own creativity is cut short. I have come to realize that, a primary reason people don’t do new things is because they want to do them perfectly. Let me shock you by saying that the only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action. Therefore, this is a clarion call to everyone who desires to be at the top of life. receive grace to Crush Procrastination, you have an opportunity today to vacate the valley of procrastination and stop the enemy of champions.
God wants to make us an evidence of His power and ability to achieve everything he wants you to become in life. God has created and sends you to this generation as an Agent of Change, but there is a disease that kills slowly and silently that you must Crush it. Procrastination is to put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done on time. Procrastination will never win a race, receive a promotion or change the outcome of any situation in a man that permits it. Procrastination is a symptom; much like a fever, stomach-ache, or headache, and it usually boils down to one thing: fear. You will have no place with the Eagles and increase if you have not confronted procrastination. The limit you have placed on yourself is mostly due to the mindset of shifting responsibilities for fear of the unknown.
Most of us are daily tormented by the fear of stepping away from the freedom of methodical lifestyle we live because we have attachments to them. We have developed the fear of failing, of not having all the answers, and of making the wrong decision. How many of you have lost a job, a contract, a career, failed in school because of procrastination?
Paul wrote about this to encourage the Church at Corinth to complete what they started in 2 Corinthians 8:10-12 ‘And in this I give advice: It is to your advantage not only to be doing what you began and were desiring to do a year ago; but now you also must complete the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to desire it, so there also may be a completion out of what you have. For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have.’
Are you among the generation of believers who plan on doing this or that but wind up being a bunch of empty talk because none of your plans ever get implemented? The scripture says ‘Sluggards do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing.’ Proverbs 20:4, Proverbs 12:24, John 9:4
Procrastination is the greatest enemy of opportunity and achievement. Opportunity does not come once; it comes as you can create it, but procrastination destroys the momentum of creation. Hebrews 3:12, James 4:13. Therefore, you don’t decide your assignment in life, you only discover it. How many opportunities have we wasted in not telling someone about God because we convinced ourselves that we would talk to them another day? How many opportunities have we wasted not throwing ourselves in that dream, into that career, reaching that goal that would have made us somebody?
We cannot successfully lead people to Christ if we procrastinate; we cannot make any impact in our generation nor become celebrated if we fail to act in accordance to the voice of God. For example, when someone backslides from the Lord we are supposed to jump into action and do what we can to restore them, however, many times we fail to act and instead we put it off and we simply make plans about talking to this person. This should not be the case because the longer we wait the farther they are going to drift away. So, if you know of someone that has fallen away I encourage you to help them bounce back by reaching out to them (Galatians 6:1). Please don’t help in nailing them again to the cross or gossip about them or say something bad about them because by so doing you have lost the reward. The scriptures says And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news! Romans 10:15 Isaiah 52:7, Acts 10:26
When we procrastinate in prayer we are opening ourselves up to enough temptation which can lead us further away from God. It is a spiritual suicide when we cannot find time to talk to our God. Success without prayer is like a pool without water. Failing to pray not only shows lack of trust and lack of love toward our father in heaven; it also open doors for the devil to attack us at ease Mathew 26:41, 46. 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
Men and brethren, we sure need all the help we can get to deal the problems that life throws our way, it is therefore important that we should avoid procrastination in our life, 2 Peter 1:10, 2 Corinthians 6:2. The real key to Crushing Procrastination is to focus on the process, focus on the word, on your calling 1 John 2:27, and view mistakes, failure, and other people’s reactions as feedback that can help you to improve your efforts. While the emphasis is usually placed on the final product of your actions, the real enjoyment, learning, and development comes from your efforts, the process you take to get to the outcome.
Success will come once you have mastered the process of acting in the moment. Therefore, Crushing Procrastination requires the ability to focus on what you can do in the moment, and re-framing mistakes and failures as feedback you can use to improve your efforts. If things don’t turn out as you expected, you can evaluate what happened and make changes for your next attempt. If the mountain refuses to be moved and cast into the sea, learn to create a hole in the mountain and leave footsteps that others may see and follow. Shift your focus from the outcome to your immediate efforts to get to the top of every mountain you encounter. Let me warn that there are common fears that may confront you as you work on dealing with procrastination; learning more about the specific reasons for procrastination can help you better end it once and for all.
Your overall self-motivation will significantly increase as you understand and overcome the deeper procrastination reasons and learn to take action in spite of your fears. Overcoming procrastination is essential to really achieve your long term goals and aspirations. Finally, stop walking around living life in an accidental zone of procrastination. Things don’t just happen to you; every event is invented. We serve a purposeful God, so we must live with purpose and determination. You must stop reacting to life events as if you are a victim of accident or chance. Your purpose in life and what God has called you to be is a daily process and it is being revealed as you learn and grow through every situation that materializes in your life. Don’t allow circumstances to determine your success in life but be the one to determine your success by how you handle every obstacle that comes in your path to block you from achieving or becoming somebody. You must let every chicken mentality with procrastination that has followed you and prevented you from flying like an Eagle be dethrone! Receive grace to terminate the appointment with Procrastination the Enemy of Achievement in Jesus name Amen.
