The urgency of God
Do we at times sense the urgency of God? God spoke to Moses to urgently go in Exodus 3:16 (NIV) 16 "Go, assemble the elders of Israel and say to them, 'The LORD, the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-- appeared to me and said: I have watched over you and have seen what has been done to you in Egypt.
The Kairos timing of God was now, God made it clear that he had heard the cry of the Israelites and now was the season to fulfil his promise of deliverance. ‘Go’ is a verb that carries an urgency to act upon God’s instruction. God was commanding Moses to go immediately. The matter was urgent to God.
When there is urgency to the call it usually heightens one's sense of purpose. Not only is the mission important, it is so important and so urgent that one is compelled to act immediately. It can burn in our hearts so strongly that we cannot let it lie. Jer 20:9(NIV) …his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
We must learn to be quick to obey. Procrastination is a sign that we do not appreciate God's timing. In other words we pride ourselves in our own sense of timing. Let us instead resonate with God's urgency in our hearts. Can we let that sense of urgency continue to burn in our hearts?
