The Blessing of Being Steadfast
1 Corinthians 15:58,tells us,
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be STEADFAST, UNMOVABLE, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Steadfast: uncompromising, firmly fixed, consistent and persistent in love, faith and all that pertains to life and godliness.
+Being STEADFAST prevents procrastination.
Procrastination: to be slow or late in doing something that should be done; to put off intentionally and habitually
+Procrastinating is a thief of time, productivity, prosperity and good success.
Ephesians 5:15-16 (AMP)
15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people), of God.
16 Making the very most of your time [making every opportunity profitable], because the days are evil.
“What then shall we say to all these things? If God is for us, who can be [successful] against us? He who did not spare [even] His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect (His chosen ones)? It is God who justifies us [declaring us blameless and putting us in a right relationship with Himself]. Who is the one who condemns us? Christ Jesus is the One who died [to pay our penalty], and more than that, who was raised [from the dead], and who is at the right hand of God interceding [with the Father] for us. Who shall ever separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
