Genesis 22:3 “And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up and went unto the place of which God had told him.”
Our focal scripture says Abraham rose up early in the morning. A popular English idiom says, “It is the early bird that catches the worm.”
If you must rise up and fulfil destiny, then you need to become an early bird. God delights in the early birds. Hear David:
Psalms 63:1 “O God, thou art my God; EARLY WILL I SEEK THEE: my soul thirsteth for thee… “(Emphasis mine)
Early connotes several things. It means starting early in the morning, starting early in life and also mean following instructions promptly.
Men that have made impact in life understand the power of “early”. David was an early riser; he was already with the sheep of his father very early in life. The bible didn’t state categorically the age he started following the sheep alone but it must have been quite early, since he killed Goliath at the age of seventeen.
The killing of the lion and the bear was definitely before this age. Beloved, the earlier you decide to rise in life the better for you. Life is short and you do not have forever to pursue purpose so you must make up your mind to run the race of life very early.
Abraham was a man of prompt obedience. He got an invite from God to go on this adventure and he didn’t debate it, he set about it early.
Friend, Abraham knew that delayed obedience is equal to disobedience. The speed at which you set about carrying out an instruction tells a lot about your disposition towards obedience. Men look at the face but God looks at the heart. God is the judge and these are the things he looks at in marking us.
Don’t foot drag on the instructions of God, set about it early.
