One of the greatest comebacks in soccer history is when Liverpool was down three zero to AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League finals. The dream had been killed in the first half by three goals, the first coming in the very first minute of the game. In the second half, out of nowhere Steven Gerald got the first goal for his side. This gave them some belief and they soon got a second goal as they pushed the limits. From this moment, they played with a sense of urgency. They knew the possibilities and they played with passion, desire, and swagger if you may. They eventually got the equalizer sending the game into extra time. They won the match on penalties and wrote their names in history with the game dubbed “the miracle of Istanbul”. They had been beaten down but refused to give up. They only had forty-five minutes to play and surely made them count. Their three goals were scored in only six minutes; that is called urgency.
If you go about life with a sense of urgency you get more done. Don’t wait for things to happen. Get up and make them happen. You may be down but you are not out yet. God still has a game plan for you and your time has not run out. Get up and get something done right now. Go to church like you are on a mission. Get to your work like you have to get a job done. Don’t wait for tomorrow when you can do it today. You are at a critical time in your life where you can get something done for the ages. You don’t have to procrastinate about your dream. Get up right now and do something that will make it happen. The elevate anointing has a sense of urgency. The way you talk, walk, pray, work and even sleep should have a sense of urgency cause this is your time.
SCRIPTURE READING: PROVERBS 3:27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do so.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, grant me the grace to understand and grasp this sense of urgency. May I be able to do things quicker and the right way. I decree urgency in everything I do in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
