Procrastination entangles and impedes. It leads to slothful thinking. However an overcomer diligently puts these three P’s to work: purposeful, proactive, prepared.
Ephesians 2:10 says that the Lord has prepared good works for us to walk in. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says that our eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, neither has it entered our hearts to comprehend and grasp the things that He has prepared for those who love Him.
If we are to walk as the Lord walked, then we need to be ready at all times to do His will. What is His will? His will is that all men would be saved. A fisherman needs to have his nets prepared. If there are holes, he needs to get them mended. He needs to call his fellow fishermen to help. Fishing with a net is a team effort.
We are living in unprecedented times. Do you have your net prepared to catch fish? I’ve been asking the Lord to show me how to reach others with the gospel while we shelter in.
The disciples had fished all night and caught nothing. John 21:6 says, “And He said to them, Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some. So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of the fish.”
Since we are sheltering in, prayer is the right side of the boat. It is first and foremost in the work of mending our nets, and gathering effective partners. Prayer precedes the fruit (fish) that follows.
Isaiah 40 3 is speaking about John the Baptist. It says, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”
John the Baptist was a herald. John 1:29 says, “The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
Father, no one can come to Jesus unless You draw them. There is no salvation except through Jesus. You know all that is going on in our world. We are asking You to help us prepare our nets for a mighty catch. Show us where to cast out nets, and who to partner with. You are not willing that any should perish. We are asking You for world wide revival, to grant Jesus the nations for His inheritance.
