Mark 11:13 (KJV) And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

There is the true story told of an eighty-year-old woman who was seen moving from street to street preaching the gospel with a bell in her hand. Those who saw her were amazed; they would ask why she was still doing this in her old age? ‘I neglected it when I had the strength, God gave me a second chance’ she would respond.

The tree in our text had no second chance, it withered immediately. Jesus sought fruit from a tree when it was not time for fruit, have you thought about this before? Think about it today.

Has God given you an assignment: talents to use; a book to write, a message to preach, tracts to share, lives to touch, etc.? Are you saying in your heart that it is not time because conditions are not favorable? are you excusing yourself waiting ‘ for the time of figs’? Remember brethren, that our lives are not our own (see Jeremiah 10:23).

Go into today pondering on today’s text. If God will come seeking fruit from you today, will He find fruits?

You can do all that he assigned you. Begin it today and He will supply all you need to be successful.

Prayer: My Father, as I begin to do all you have committed into my hands, supply all my needs in Jesus’ name. Amen.
—Dr. James Emmanuel.
