Taking Strategic Action (Part 2)

Posted on Updated on

WELCOME BACK. The scripture says: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says”. (James 1:22). In our previous lesson I said that the world will not pay you for what you know. The world will pay you for what you do. Why? Because taking strategic action seems to be more than fore-thought. It’s not so much a habit as it is a capacity to get involved. There are always a huge gape between knowledge and action. This is a global phenomenon. It was recognized that there was a shift of level in my life as a results of my acting on revelation. Revelation plus action equals to manifestation and revelation minus action equals to frustration. Those who pursued their destiny in life and succeeded are singled out for recognition as champions and heroes. They are people who simply saw a situation that demanded action and, without really thinking about it, leaped into action. As our culture demand, we deeply love and celebrate championship and the act of heroism, but what we fail to realize is that championship are linked to action. They are linked to the simple activity of getting off the bleachers and getting involved in the game. Great things can happen when a person actually does something, even though the action performed may not be perfectly planned out and may not be the perfect thing to do.

Later in my life, I discovered that taking strategic and practical action is the secret of success. Peter Drucker a writer and a business consultants once said, “Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.” Wow! That’s a profound word. You see, if you have ever paid attention, you may notice that most people will do just anything to avoid taking strategic and practical action. They will talk, they will plan, they will prepare, and they will organize. They will think, they will pray, they will seek counsel, and they will investigate. But they fail to take strategic and practical action because they lack enthusiasm to act. They spend their lives procrastinating and afraid to actually take the leap of faith. Procrastination is a natural destroyer of opportunity and the exact opposite of action taken. People fail to act, not because they are afraid. They are afraid to take a chance. They are afraid to jump off the diving board. Nevertheless, the reality of the culture in which we live is that nothing happens until somebody does something. Thinking, praying and planning all have their place. Remember, the ditch doesn’t get dug until somebody picks up a shovel. Action is the key to moving forward in life and destiny.
