The Time Is NOW!

By: Carla Marcelle


When I took out my Daily Walk Bible, and read a passage I was so amazed to see what the word was. It spoke directly to me. It spoke about how Esther saw a need in Persia, and prayed and formed a plan to tackle the problem. She did not wait. God put a vision in her heart, and she executed the plan.

I, myself, have been given a vision by God, and now is the time to see it through. I need not hesitate, procrastinate, or wait. After I read that, I randomly flipped to Jeremiah chapter 1, and began to read. It was about God giving Jeremiah an assignment to go out and prophesies to the nations.

| Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV), Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.Jeremiah was only 13 years old, and he told God he was just a kid. This was God’s response to Jeremiah.
 | Jeremiah 1:7 (NIV),
Don’t say “I am only a child’, you must go to everyone I send you to, and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord..
| Jeremiah 1:10 (NIV),
…See, today I appoint you over the nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant”

 | Jeremiah 1:12 (NIV),
…I am watching to see my word is fulfilled.


Wow, this is so profound because, it inspired my faith on a new level. If God gives an assignment, and declares I must go now, I MUST GO NOW! He knew me before I was crated, and implanted in me the skills, talent, tools I need to get the job done.

Then as I  continued reading, I come across this,
 | Jeremiah 1:17 (NIV),
….Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.

This told me that I must operate in a spirit of faith, and be bold. I must, must not tower because I am on an assignment. I look forward to seeing what this season brings about in my life. I know it is a season of faith, so with that I am moving forward to victory. My heart is anxious, and soul is ready. What an awesome feeling when you know God is on your side. If He is for you, who can be against you.

I intend to stay focused, and motivated. Just as Esther did, I must pray and fast to truly seek the Lords guidance. I am so encouraged to know it is not I who operates, but it is the God in me.


Be BOLD! Let's take action to fulfill God's purpose for our lives.

  1. Thank you kingdommotivation. Stay motivated. The only power the enemy has is deception. All he can do is deceive us. To combat that, we must stay in the word, so we know truth!!
