And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
People can be grouped into various categories in relation to their attitude towards life. Some are sitting, others are standing, most are walking and a few are running. You must run in order to have advantage over those who are walking in front of you. Those who do something extra always catch God’s attention.
Zacchaeus, whose name means “pure”, was a superintendent of customs, a position that was generally held by people who were not morally upright. Zacchaeus had spent a long time not fulfilling his purpose. When the opportunity showed up he ran to achieve his purpose. Zacchaeus had an encounter with Jesus Christ that transformed him into a man of purpose – he exhibited supernatural speed in the pursuit of his purpose.
There are many opportunities – life, people, businesses, etc – set before us to enable us accomplish our purpose. Some people have taken hold of their opportunities, but are unfortunately moving at a wrong speed.
The world has become too fast for any slow person to accomplish anything. The rate at which human needs and suffering are rising should deny us the luxury of moving at our own pace. We must believe God for Supernatural Speed to impact lives and alleviate human suffering.
1. Pray and remove anything that has been, or has the possibility of being an impediment to your speed in life.
2. Pray also that God will propel you to accomplish your purpose.
