September 28 Take Action Towards Your Dream Fulfillment

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might; for there is no work, nor plan, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave where you go. (Ecc 9:10) So you have these great dreams? That is a wonderful thing. Those dreams must be given life and expression for them to be meaningful. You must take action towards their fulfillment. Many realize that they have wasted much time and nothing has been achieved in their life time. A lifetime is made up of minutes, hours, days, months and years. What you use your minutes for directly translate to what you used your lifetime for. Solomon found this secret and said, “Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might…” There is nothing as terrible as half baked bread! It is a waste of both effort and resources.

Your life must be lived in a calculated manner for it to produce results. Manna still rains from heaven but for those who have taken time and effort to walk into the desert. There is no fruit without hard and honest work. Nothing comes around on its own except bills-these will come at the end of the month whether you act or not. The greatest limiting factor is procrastination. A tendency to never do anything, leaving things for tomorrow that must be done and accomplished today. To be great, you must relentlessly pursue that greatness. Today my challenge to you is that you must refuse mediocrity. Work on the things you are on as if it is your last opportunity to do it. This applies to everywhere you find yourself-at work, in school wherever! There is no “work in the grave, or plan, or knowledge, or wisdom.”

This means if your life is lacking these four virtues-work, plan, knowledge and wisdom your existence is questionable. You might be holding a job; you might even be doing stuff in your life but is that the best that can come out of you. What would happen if you put in a bit more effort? If you planned better, if you sought more knowledge on the subject matter and if you operated with God given prudence? What steps have you taken today towards that big goal? How do those steps contribute to the attainment of it? What have you deferred that you were supposed to do? Those mountains will not move when you do nothing; they will only move when you start doing something. Keep digging trenches in that valley.
