*”If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments and do them, I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit. . . I will give peace in the land; you shall lie down and none shall fill you with dread or make you afraid.” ~Leviticus 26:3-4, 6
How often do you find yourself putting off things that you dread doing Maybe it’s that stack of laundry or those bills that need to be paid. Train yourself not to dread unpleasant tasks but instead to tackle them first.
The sooner in the day you do the things you don’t prefer doing, the more energy you have to do them. If you wait until the end of the day, it will be worse than doing your tasks earlier. Dread causes us to procrastinate, but if you’re ever going to do something, now is the best time!
Putting something off does not make it go away; it only allows the dread more time to torment you. You can dread or you can confidently take action. As Christians with the power of the Holy Spirit inside of us, surely we can manage to do an unpleasant task without dreading it and with a good attitude. God’s power is not available just to make unpleasant things in our lives go away; it is frequently available to walk us through them courageously.
Prayer: Lord, by Your grace and power I am determined to take action over the areas of life where I procrastinate. Help me to stop the torment of holding back and give me courage to do the things I must. Amen.
