Now is the time to act in whatever you want to do. Your life needs you to act and the time to act is not tomorrow or it may always be ahead of us, the best time to act is not yesterday or it may bring regret and resentment to us. The bible says “In the time of my favour I heard you and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2- NIV).
Now is the time for everything, if you didn’t do it yesterday then you may choose to do it today, if you didn’t do it 10 years ago then you may do it today. Remember what we said in one of our earlier encouragements titled ACTION IS WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE where we stated that for as long as you are not acting upon your dreams, nothing will change at all. You are the power plant of your dreams and vision. I was supposed to be writing these encouragement articles and books about five years ago but I didn’t, so when I realised that I was supposed to be doing what I was not doing I then started right away because it is never too late to start.
In 1994 something peculiar took place in the Republic of South Africa. An ex-convict and ex-prisoner rose up to the seat of presidency. That man is former president Nelson Mandela at age 76 and today he has become an icon of peace and reconciliation around the world. This is amazing if someone is released from prison and becomes a president, what more of me who is still younger and not even locked up in prison.
Another man in Kenya started his primary school education at age 84. When the government announced that it will be offering primary education for free the old grandpa did not say “I am too old for this, if the scheme had come during my time I would have gone for it right away”. The old man seized the opportunity; he knew his time was now. It is never too late to start.
What is that dream that you have had and you feel it is too late to start. Now is the time to start. Are you not born again? Now is the time to start, it is never too late to start anything unless you are dead. Are you still alive? Start now.
