Topic: Move On, Don’t Procrastinate
Text: Luke 15:17 – 21
It was Theodore Roosevelt who said that “Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in a grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.” This is one major problem of many people today. They fear to attempt or give a trial. For this reason, most people are unable to reach the summit of their career or achieve their life’s dream because they have chosen to glue them to a place or certain level of achievement that they find it difficult to progress further. What are the things holding you back from venturing? God is telling you today that you can and should go ahead. Don’t limit yourself. In our text is a well-known story of the Prodigal Son. He did not allow his sin against his father to hold him back from returning to him. He knew that going back to the father is the best opportunity left for him. Though he considered his sins, he decided to move ahead. At last he got a surprise of his life. Beloved, have you been held back by fear, sin or intimidation of the devil? Have you given up repentance because you feel that your sins are too much? Jesus came into this world because of sinners. Don’t be held back by your past. Forge ahead. I urge you to lose every chain that has hitherto held you back. Step out and surely you will step into your miracles of salvation, healing, deliverance and success.
