I’ve always felt an urgency to do something with my life; an urgency to move forward in life; an urgency to change paths when something didn’t pan out the way I wanted it to. But the thing that puzzles me is that I’ve focused more on the every day life than on practicing what I wanted to get good at. So why would I not focus on my passions? Why do I neglect the things I love to do and want to get good at? Maybe it’s fear, maybe it’s being too tired after work, maybe it’s life, maybe it’s that people tell me all these other things are more important… or maybe, just maybe it’s the fear of failure or the thought of “It’s too late, I should have started practicing and studying relentless when I was younger.” There is a time to wait, absolutely. There is a time to learn. There is a time to be still and listen to God’s voice.
God’s whisper tonight is: It’s NEVER too late.It’s never too late to set your priorities straight. It’s never too late to step into your destiny. It’s never too late to bust your hiney to achieve your heart’s desire. It’s never too late to give your all to Jesus. It’s never too late to step out in faith. It’s never too late to love your spouse, your kids, your family more. It’s never too late to believe again. It’s never too late to join creation and worship Jesus, the King of Kings. It’s never too late, not until you take your last breath.
Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter). – John 1:40-43
Jesus looked at Simon for the first time and the first thing he says is how he sees Him. He called Simon by a new name in the first sentence he speaks to him. It’s as if Jesus can’t help Himself but look at us through the blood of the lamb that purified us. Yes, I’m aware of the fact that looking at it in time Jesus wasn’t crucified for another three years. But remember, there is no time as we know it in God’s kingdom. The lamb was slain before the foundations of the world was laid. Jesus knew who you are called to be; He knew your destiny long before you ever breathed the air of this planet; long before your parents ever named you; long before you started following your own will. He designed your heart beat. It was Him who placed the good desires of your heart in you. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.(- James 1:17)
Ask God who He sees when He looks at you. I think you might be surprised! It’s never too late to become who God created you to be!
