Do Nothing Squared = Nothing: Do Something Squared = Abundance

nothing-fron-nothing-showers-blessingIn a conversation with one of my nieces I was doing the “aunt thing.” In essence, I was providing words of wisdom to propel her through life. I told her, “Give a person a fish they eat for a day. Teach a person to fish they will eat for a lifetime. If you teach them how to fish they will initially catch a gold fish; but as they master fishing they will catch a whale!

When your expectations increase so will your accomplishments. Small expectations produce small results. Great expectations produce enormous results. As you move confidently in that direction, your expectation increases as you exponentially increase in productivity.

Expecting things to change in your life is not sitting on the couch day in and day out saying that you are expecting to become a millionaire. That type of expectation is a false reality that doesn’t even bring superficial results. Why! Because doing nothing multiplied by doing nothing equals nothing. Conversely, doing something multiplied by doing something equals abundance. You do the math for yourself. Even more why not live the “do something equation” and watch and see what happens.

There are so many people sitting on the stool of “do nothing” that the bench has enlarged itself. Take a look and notice that the bench where people are doing something is less crowded. It is because very few people are willing to do what it takes. Most sit on the sidelines and watch others as they claim to be waiting for their ship to come in.

Well, I’m here to tell you that your ship came in a long time ago and you watched it go by. Not just once, but numerous times. At what point do you stop being just a watcher and become a doer? Is it that you don’t recognize it because you’ve done nothing to prepare for it? Or, is it that you are so afraid that you have become blinded by your plethora of excuses that prevents you from moving?

At any rate, it is time for your actions to partner with your expectations. If your expectations are not coupled with action seeds, then your harvest will be nil. Expecting with no action is a case study for failure. It yields no fruit! From one harvest season to the next you find yourself in the same place. Haven’t you traversed this mountain long enough? I think so!

Take a look inside yourself and ask some poignant questions about your life. In doing so, be honest and realistic with your answers. Now, after you have introspectively asked yourself, now ask God for His direction. In this conversation, have an ear to hear exactly what He says and the instruction He provides for you to move from just expecting to action.

It is your deliberate actions that will provide the harvest. Expectation needs a bridge that flows into your harvest. That bridge is called, “Action.” Your faith with action leads to abundant success. Now, go catch a whale!


A lazy person says, “There’s a ferocious lion out on the road! There’s a lion loose in the streets!” {As} a door turns on its hinges, so the lazy person turns on his bed. A lazy person puts his fork in his food. He wears himself out as he brings it back to his mouth. A lazy person thinks he is wiser than seven people who give a sensible answer. Prov 26:13-16 (GW)

Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see. Heb 11:1 (GW)

So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off. Prov 24:14 (KJV)

Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalms 37:4-5 (KJV)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jer 29:11 (KJV)

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. Psalms 62:5 (KJV)

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. James 2:17-18 (KJV)

He told them, “Throw the net out on the right side of the boat, and you’ll catch some.” So they threw the net out and were unable to pull it in because so many fish were in it. John 21:6 (GW)


Father, Expecting and doing nothing is like having no expectations at all. I know that there is so much more for me in life. I know that You want more for me. For some reason I find myself unable to do anything. I have great expectations and each day I wake up with the express purpose in doing something. Yet, I continue to do nothing. I’ve come to realize that in order for me to do something, I need You! I can’t do it by myself because I have tried so hard to do it and have been so unsuccessful. Each day provide me with Your Spirit of enablement so I can do something and reap an enormous harvest. Amen
