The Danger of Delay (4)

I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.
    —Psalm 119:60

Satan sighs: “This one’s a tough customer. She’s doggedly determined to obey God. I don’t think I can win with her . . . unless . . . unless I can get her to put it off.”

If Satan can’t get you to be flagrantly disobedient, his next plan of attack will likely be a delay ploy: obey, but not yet; later.

When you obey God, you win, Satan loses—but not until then.

“Teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom (Ps 90:12).

Not a single second of the time God gives you today can be carried over as a credit to tomorrow.

Today is like the money in your pocket: you can spend it any way you choose, but you can only spend it once.

Delayed obedience is disobedience.
