God has a deep respect for timing and as a child of God, you must train yourself to do the same. There is a calendar of God for your life which you must understand and live by. This is because at God’s prophetic time for your life, God shows up to initiate new things. However, the devil also targets this time to introduce messes and traps into our lives.

David was a man anointed of God and God Himself described him as a man after his own heart. However, the devil successfully got him into a mess of murder, adultery and cover up (Acts 13:22, II Sam.11). I want you to see some of the things that got David into a mess so that you can avoid them as you go on in your journey in life. Although David came out of this mess but it was not without scars (II Sam.12:10 – 14).

The first step that led David into a mess was his disrespect for divine timing (Read 2Sam.11:1). He was at home at a time when he should have been at war. This was a divine time for David but he missed it. Great men have great authority but when they don’t do things at the right time, a mess will be inevitable. Wisdom is actually 80% time + 20% decision and so if you will be a wise man on the earth, you must be a man with an understanding of divine timing for your life (Ecc.8:5 – 8). The city of Jerusalem is still in a mess today because she missed her time of visitation (Luke 19:41 – 44).

Not recognizing divine timing could eventually lead to generational problems as you can see in the life of David, the King. Conquer laziness and procrastination every day and it shall be well with you in Jesus’ name (Amen).

Prayer:  Father, I pray today that you will help me to conquer on a daily basis, procrastination and laziness so that I will not enter into a mess in Jesus’ name. Amen.
