It’s possible that you find yourself cornered today. Although you are not lost in the foreseen Andes, you feel gripped with fear because your situation is extreme. It’s time to get control of your finances. Or break off a compromising relationship. Or say yes to God’s clear leading. Or come to terms with your priorities. Or get your career in gear. It’s no time for a mild and easy shift. The dilemma is extreme and the only solution is a radical one. You’ve thought it through and you’ve considered all the alternatives. Your throat is sore from praying and your eyes burn from weeping. You know it’s right but you;re scared. Really scared. Initially, somebody won’t understand and you’ll not be able to explain. Yet you are convinced it’s best…it will glorify God…it can be supported by scriptural principles…and it’s right.
So? So, quit procrastinating and do it.
Had Christ not taken a drastic step, sinners like us would’ve never survived the Fall. We would never have been rescued. We would be permanently lost. The cross was God’s incredible response to our extreme dilemma. Christ did something radical.
Now it’s your turn. Get with it.
Commit again to the Lord the radical step which you believe He wants you to take. As you do, listen to His words to His servant in Joshua 1:9.

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
This was my devotion for the day, and it could not be anymore ON TIME for me. Moving forward with the Word God has placed in my heart.
