Day 16 – How Long Will You Sleep?


‘How long will you lie there doing nothing at all? When are you going to get up and stop sleeping? Sleep a little. Doze a little. Fold your hands and twiddle your thumbs. Suddenly, everything is gone, as though it had been taken by an armed robber.’ Proverbs 6:9-11 CEV

When lack pursues a man that does not have, it does so like an armed robber, very violent! When a man that does not have realizes his state of lack, he becomes frustrated. Often times, too much sleep leads to poverty. Don’t let too much sleep hinder you from tilling your ground and from maximizing your potential. For how long would you sleep?

Wake up to your responsibilities. You need to wake up from your slumber and think through on the dreams that God has given to you. You have told many people that you have ideas, but nobody can see it effected, you need to wake up to implement your ideas. For how long would you remain in the state of stupor? Wake up. If you sleep for too long; it will lead you to poverty. If you lie down doing nothing, you are indirectly sleeping!

Poverty brings a sense of regrets, and this can lead to a frustrated destiny. Do not delay any further. Right now, take some time to think through on all the ideas that God has given you before, write them down, and review the ones you wrote before. Determine the plan of action for the implementation, trust the Lord to lead you, follow Him in faith, and mountain will melt before you like wax before fire. This is your day of fresh grace. May God give you wisdom and understanding!
