Leonardo Da Vinci was one of history's famous procrastinators.  He never finished a project on time, and was notorious for jumping from one unfinished project to another.  His painting Mona Lisa took 20 years to complete and the Last Supper was finished only after the one who commissioned him to do the work, threatened to cut off his funds.  He planned to write 3 books on mathematical subjects, but they were never published.  His notebooks were filled with ingenious inventions and machines; most were never built or implemented.  On his death bed he apologized to "God and man for leaving so much undone."

I do not know about you, but I certainly do not want to say that at the end of my life.  God has a purpose and a plan in mind for you, that is why He made you. 
"Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you.  Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you" Jeremiah 1:5 (The Message).  You are made to Love God, Love yourself, Love others; and you do this by doing what you were created to do. That is why you exist today. 

In fact, at the end of our life the Lord is going to ask us, "What did you do with the gift of My Son Jesus" and "What did you do with the gifts, talents, and abilities I gave you?  Were faithful and diligent to accomplish the purpose you were made for?"  If you are, you will hear God say, "Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful (diligent) servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.  Matthew 25:21 (Amplified Bible).  One of the keys to receiving delight and blessedness both on earth and in heaven is to commit your lives to god, know what you were created to do, then be diligent to finishing the job.  DILIGENCE is the opposite of PROCRASTINATION. 

God's , Word says "be not slothful in business; but fervent in spirit; serving the Lord" Romans 12:11 (King James Version).  This verse is a call to action the Lord wants you to take.  He is basically saying , "Be diligent (constant in your efforts; attentive, persistent, and persevering) to accomplish your purpose (in work, occupation, employment, ministry); do this with a spirit (attitude) of urgency (hurried, fast, enthusiastically, without delay, urgent need of quick action); knowing that when you serve (help, minister to, assist) my people, you are truly serving and loving Me." 

So, let me encourage you to spend some quiet time in prayer today, seeking what God wants you to do right now, then be obedient to do it with your whole heart!

Confession: "I commit my life to the Lord, and take quick action to diligently complete everything He has called me to do."
