Rise and shine on time
The other day, while sitting at home, I just realized that I had no groceries left in my fridge. I did not see it as a big problem since I had set a time to go out shopping in the evening. During that same Tuesday, I got so absorbed in my private work at home, and my shopping plans kept being pushed in the back of my mind. Deep in my head, one thought kept ringing:
' I will do some shopping in the evening and the stores will still be open.'
And time kept passing, on and on...from 6 o'clock to 7 o'clock, to 8 o'clock...I was still absorbed in my private life while believing that there would still be shops open in the late evening. When I finally got the alarm bells ringing, I decided to go out shopping.
To my great surprise, the shop I went to was closed... Suddenly , a great moral lesson rose up in my mind:
'Sometimes we feel so important to the point of believing that the world will wait for us forever. It is partly true, the world is waiting for us, just like the shop owner was waiting for me ;his customer. But because the world is subject to a force called 'Time', it can not afford to wait forever. The shop owner was expecting me but not beyond a certain time. '
Jesus lived on this Earth and He did not make us wait forever when it was time for Him to be manifested through His ministry.
In Romans 8:19, the Bible states: “ For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.”
Notice as well that the Bible never said that the world will wait forever.
You have a power and a purpose to manifest for the benefit of the world. The people who are supposed to receive your manifestation are waiting for you to manifest. The problem is that they will not be able to wait forever . Not because they don't want to, but simply because they won't be able to. They are subject to time, just like the shop owner needed to go home and spend time with his family.
The world is waiting, but you will have to rise and shine on time before they stop waiting...The world is hurting right now, and the world needs a solution right now.
You have the solution, therefore 'Rise on time'.
