Daily Devotional with Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 5.7.18 ♥

Tonight after watching Sammy Hagar‘s new tv show, I realized Sammy is a good man all around. His faith, his music and being a philanthropist. ( http://www.axs.tv/programs/sammy-hagar/ ) Here’s a lesson straight from the lips of the Red Rocker, Sammy Hagar himself, don’t you wait for things to happen, you need to make them happen on your terms.

🎶 Don’t wanna wait til tomorrow,
Why put it off another day?
One more walk through problems,
Built up, and stand in our way ,ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don’t dream about yesterday, hey
C’mon turn, turn this thing around…..Right Now🎶

“Right Now” is about living in the moment. It’s about making something happen now. It’s not a song about waiting but of turning something around. It’s a motivation song. It’s an action song. It’s a doing song. It’s not a song about playing it safe, but a song of risking all to make it happen. As Believers we like nothing better than playing it safe. We are those who when we are confronted by the risks of life first gather as many facts as possible, view the options, and make choices so that we are in control and reasonably certain of the outcome. Abraham did not gather the facts, view the options, was not in control and could not forsee the outcome. He took a risk. At times we tend to label risks as “undesirable” because in the end we do not trust and we believe that it could end up causing loss and heartache and trouble for us and others, we fear unwanted results as much as we dread missing out on our dreams. That would be enough to have us stay at home. We are also afraid of looking foolish or incompetent, incurring financial difficulty, or facing physical danger. From a human viewpoint, eliminating uncertainty makes a lot of sense. At times this attitude is not the perspective YeHoVaH has for you. Our Father’s perspective is that there are times for the followers of Yeshua to take risks! To launch out and be the change. There are times that we are encouraged to say yes despite what we can see in front of us. When He is the one asking us to step out of our comfort zone we can consider ourselves safe in His hands and safe under His direction. ( http://biblehub.com/kj2000/hebrews/11.htm ) Just Like Abraham in the passage. From YeHoVaH’s viewpoint, there is no uncertainty, because He has control over all things and He will never fail to accomplish His good purposes. ( Eph. 1:11 http://biblehub.com/kj2000/ephesians/1.htm ) Facebook friends, spiritual growth is stunted when we refuse to obey Him. Sometimes that involves leaving what is safe or familiar and like Abraham taking a journey into the unknown and doing it now. Abraham did not wait he made it happen, he caught that magic moment and did it “RIGHT NOW”. Amen? https://youtu.be/rMV-fenGP1g
