“SOMEBODY, DO SOMETHING!” Wednesday Minute



” Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: “Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the wilderness.”  Exodus 5:1 NIV


Read:   Exodus 5


I read of a car overturning and trapping the occupants inside.   With super strength four college students were able to push the car  upright and pulled the passengers to safety.   The heroes did not wait for a rescue team; they decided to be the rescue team!  They did something.


People who are successful at any task are the one who do something.  In order to succeed, you have to do something.   While you may be able to accomplish something by hanging onto the coattails of others as they lead the parade, you will never be an individual success until you step up and do things on your own.


We all have heard of someone who failed and failed and failed; then they were a huge success.    You can be a huge success.   Just do something.   You can be that somebody who succeeds.   Maybe, you are challenged by a special project, a difficult class in school or a personal problem at home.   No matter the situation, you can rise above it.   Just start doing instead of thinking about it and putting it off.


Moses life led him to be an outcast at times with his people and with the Egyptians, but he prevailed.   He struggled to be obedient to GOD when GOD called upon him and he led GOD’S people for 40 years.


Today, you can allow GOD to use you.   Follow GOD rather than your old self.   As I write often…”If you want the same old thing, do the same old thing.   If you want something different, do something different”.  Don’t wait to hear “Somebody, do something!”.    Do something because you are supposed to do something.


Today’s prayer:  “LORD, Hear my prayer.   Thank YOU for all YOU have done for me.   Prod me to do all YOU want me to do for YOU when I hold back.   Amen. ”
