SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR NOVEMBER 16, 2022 (DO NOT WAIT FOR THE PERFECT CONDITION)
TOPIC : “DO NOT WAIT FOR THE PERFECT CONDITION”
Scripture: If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done. Ecclesiastes 11:4. TLB
Thought for The Day: If the condition is wrong but the conviction is right, follow the conviction and act immediately.
Sometime ago, I came across a story told by R. A. Torrey of his unfortunate encounter with a waiter in a restaurant. He said on seeing the waiter, the Holy Spirit ministered to him to preach to the waiter. But somehow, he felt that the restaurant, being a public place may not be proper for him to preach to someone personally.
He wanted a perfect or an ideal condition, but that was not to be. Less than one hour later, the same waiter he was meant to preach to committed suicide by hanging himself at the back of the restaurant.
Imagine that! Someone he was led of the Spirit to save committed suicide, just because he delayed to act for want of a perfect condition. Very devastating!
Beloved, one of the hindrances to preaching the Gospel and winning souls for Christ is waiting for perfect conditions. This is not supposed to be because all that matters is the conviction, not the condition. Let God give you the conviction, all you need do is to follow it, and you will end with the manifestation.
Our anchor scripture says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” If you are waiting to see a man who would say, “Preach to me, I want to be saved,” you will never get anything done.
If the Spirit of the Lord is ministering to you that someone needs God now, take advantage of that opportunity by ministering to the person right away even if the condition is wrong. So, if the condition is wrong but the conviction is right, follow the conviction and act immediately.
Beloved, as you follow the leading of the Spirit of God in soul-winning assignment, you will experience a bountiful harvest of souls and the rewards that come with it.
REMEMBER THIS: If the condition is wrong but the conviction is right, follow the conviction and act immediately
1. Take advantage of every opportunity to preach the Gospel; preach anywhere the Spirit of God leads you.
2. Make demands on the help of the Holy Spirit whenever you go out to win souls.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to go for the lost. Holy Spirit, speak through me and bring conviction to every heart enslaved by the yoke of sin, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
