Seize the Day for God

Thought For Today: “Seize the Day for God”

Seize the day, or in and Latin, “Carpe Diem,” was used prior to the coming of Christ by Roman Poet Horace to express the idea that one should enjoy life while they can.

But for Christians, those who seize the day live in a dimension of divine uncertainty, but it doesn’t paralyze them in the process.

Most of us live paralyzed lives because we continue to wait until we know for sure what is God’s will, when in fact we know what God’s will is and our prayers are not so much to ascertain it, as it is to change it over to our will, or better yet, what we want.

When I was asked to start teaching a morning service around 30 years ago, I said I’d pray about it. Now there’s nothing wrong and everything right about praying, but in this instance, it was sin, because I knew it was God’s will and opportunity for me.

Can you imagine what the church can accomplish and how dangerous it could be if we move forward for God and seize the day for His kingdom?

The Apostle Paul said, “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15-17)
