“He who watches the wind [waiting for all conditions to be perfect] will not sow [seed], and he who looks at the clouds will not reap [a harvest]” Ecclesiastes 11:4, Amplified.
We can be waiting on the perfect conditions to do what God says, but the truth is, those perfect conditions may not ever come. If you are waiting on everything to be perfect before you obey God, you can end up spending years on the sidelines of your life.
In imperfect conditions, Jesus came to the earth and made man better. In imperfect weather, Peter briefly walked on water (Matthew 14:28). Everything won’t always be as you would like them to be. You may have to start in a hotel instead of a building. You may have to begin on your laptop, and your gift in your hands. You may have to drive on a getaway instead of waiting for a grand trip so that you can go ahead and get the quality time your marriage needs. You may be waiting to work out that situation with someone when God says to tell them the truth this weekend.
There may be winds all around, but the Lord says don’t observe them in these times. The winds are trying to keep you from sowing. The perfect condition is His perfect will and that’s all you need.
Prayer: Father, I give You glory and praise. Thank You for speaking to me. Help me not observe the winds, waiting on perfect conditions to do what You say. I may have to launch out with what I have. Help me, Holy Spirit, to move when You say move. As I sow, I declare I will reap a tremendous harvest. No more holding up my life and my dreams. Your voice is the only perfect condition I need. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
