Proactive or Reactive? In my experience, there seems to be two types of people in the world. There are those who sit around and wait for things to happen to them and then when something does happen, sometimes positive but often times negative, they react to the situation. Then there are those who are proactive or intentional about planning ahead and taking control of a situation before it happens. Events often don’t unfold as we may plan but being proactive allows us to be in a better position to be responsive to unplanned situations. Proactivity allows us to respond (ask God for help) while reactivity usually catches us off guard and paralyzes us from action.
Lord, help me to be proactive and intentional and not simply wait for You to help me but to ask for your help before, during and after it is needed.
