My friends, if you see a temptation coming, and you can avoid it, run! Don’t wait around, don’t play around, run. You drop a match in your lap, you don’t sit there and wonder how long it can sit there before it burns you. You get rid of it. …

> 1 Samuel 17:48 When the Philistine started forward to attack him, David ran quickly to the battle line to meet the Philistine.

When you know God has given you something to do, when you know you are led to do a certain thing, do it, get about it as soon as possible. Don’t wait around until tomorrow. Between now and tomorrow, you might change your mind. You’re just giving the Devil a chance to talk you out of it. If you know you need to get on a diet, don’t wait until tomorrow. Do it today! If you know you need to get on a budget. Don’t wait until tomorrow, don’t wait until the bill collector is at your door, work on it this afternoon. Do it today! If you know you need to deal with something in your life, if you know there is a habit you need to stop, if you know there is a spiritual discipline you need to add to your life, don’t wait until tomorrow. Do it today!
