Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Reflection: Creation is an initiative of God. The creation story introduces us to different initiatives, One of which brought man into existence. A key lesson out of the story is therefore the need for man to take initiatives in life in order to live successfully. As long as man is created in God’s image, he must demonstrate the ability to take initiatives in life. Initiative is all about taking charge in life and involves anticipation and taking a series of actions to get things done to achieve your goals in life. Implicitly it is a ‘personal quality that shows a willingness to take responsibility to get things done’. As created in the image of God, you have the power to initiate actions to improve your livelihood. Put it to work! Remember, you cannot be successful in life until you learn to take initiatives.
Prayer: Oh Lord, let my ability to initiate actions to improve my daily living be activated in Jesus’ name.
Confession: I do not lack the ability to take initiatives in life. I am created in God’s image. I am a winner.
