I want you to take note or underline the word “delaying , especially something that requires immediate attention”. I was speaking to a young lady during an interview as she was applying for a job at our company. After asking her several questions, she gave me great answers that every interviewer would like to hear. After I was almost done with the interview, I asked her about her highest form of education which was relevant to the job. She responded by saying I am 10 credit away from graduating college as she dropped out of college since 2006. With her exact word “I am planning to go back”, with a disappointing look on my face, I told her you have been trying to go back 7 years ago? This is what procrastination does, it cripples you if you allow it, I will try to loose weight but every time it’s gym time you say you go the next day and the next day. Procrastination is like a deadly cancer, you cannot let it live with you and it’s got to die.
Friends the truth of the matter is that procrastination is a killer of destiny, holds you stagnant. Procrastination makes you make the unimportant important, the neccesary unnecessary. Procrastination is like a bound that if you let it, it will hold you bound even till grave. But there comes a time where you say no more baby, I shake you off, dust my foot , wipe the cold at my eye, look up to Heaven from where cometh my help.
The story of the prodigal son Luke 15 : 17-21 : But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, hisfather saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
The prodigal son came to his senses having wasted all his inheritance that he demanded from his father while he was still alive. The prodigal son understood that he had messed up, understood he had lavished his resources, understood he had jump the gun, understood he had ate the forbidden fruit. Made up his mind that no more seating here in waste, no more seating in regret, no more what if, or what may, but decided I will take my destiny in my hand. I got myself here, I will get myself out. Here is the good news, you have got help. The Bible says the son of man has come to give you life and even more abundant.
