Did you realize that we devour extra content material in quarter-hour than our great-grandparents did in a single month? How loopy is that? In simply quarter-hour, our minds and hearts have been consumed with “stuff.” The very first thing many of us do after we get up earlier than we are able to even take our first step is to test social media to seek out out the tales/information of the day. In this point in time, we’re consumed with so many issues that generally our relationship with God is strained or non-existent. We have so many distractions and temptations, however however, that’s nonetheless no excuse. God deserves the primary fruits of our day. We ought to at all times prioritize Him in our lives. It is really easy to get “caught up” in what’s going on round you, that you just lose focus of what’s so vital: God.
Seasons of Life:
Maybe you simply received married or possibly you’ve got been married and also you’re elevating young children/ youngsters or possibly you began a new enterprise, job, or college. Maybe the enterprise you’ve been engaged on is now blossoming, possibly you are residing your dream and all your onerous work is paying off. No matter the place we’re in life, it doesn’t matter what season we’re in, now we have to guarantee that our relationship with God is strong. Honestly, spending time with God is a very powerful factor we are able to do as a result of after we spend time with God; we’re spending time with the Creator of the universe, the Author and Finisher of our religion, our Father, the God who made us. He is aware of our ins and outs, He is aware of our future. He predestined daily of our life. He is aware of the way it started and He is aware of the way it will finish.
I observed that after I spend time with God earlier than my day, issues are likely to fall in place. When I begin my break day proper with prayer, studying the phrase of God, praising and worshipping Him; I begin with a good angle and outlook. I’ve the possibility to talk to my Creator and He speaks to me. I floor myself within the phrase of God in order that earlier than I face something within the day, I have already got my coronary heart and my thoughts set proper. That doesn’t suggest the trials and tribulations won’t come, however what occurs is after we prioritize our time with God, we ask Him to return in and take management, after which we will be relaxation assured realizing that God is in management of every part that issues us.
I noticed a quote the opposite day that claims:
“Those who put everything in God’s hands eventually see God’s hands on everything.”
When you prioritize God in your life, God will put his hand in every part that issues you. You needn’t fear (Matthew 6:25-34).
Matthew 6:33 says:
But search first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these items shall be given to you as effectively.
The Word of God tells us that once you search Him first and His righteousness then all these items shall be added unto you. Those issues will be something that you just want and/or want. When we put God first and prioritize Him 1st in our lives, then any and every part we’d like shall be “added” unto us! Everything we ever need or want is in Him. We’ve received to do our greatest as a result of heaven is at stake, our life is at stake, our future is at stake. Heaven is the aim, eternity in heaven with Jesus/God.
The humorous factor is that some of us are so busy with the very issues we’ve prayed for previously, so “busy” with the blessings that God gave us. God is the one which blessed us with these items, but generally we discover it troublesome to find time for Him. We ought to by no means be too busy to hunt God’s face. It is simply by His grace that we’re right here immediately.
I wish to share 3 ideas that can enable you to in your relationship with God; whether or not your relationship veteran otherwise you simply received saved.
Tip 1: Audio Bible
You shall be so shocked how a lot you possibly can be taught by listening to the Bible on audio. The good thing is that there are such a lot of apps/packages to select from or you possibly can take heed to it on YouTube…no matter works for you. Listening to the Bible on audio is a highly effective device, it could actually reinforce what you realize and I’m certain that you’ll be taught some issues as effectively.
Tip 2: Spend time with God as a half of one thing you already do each day
For instance, possibly each morning you drive 20 minutes to drop the youngsters off in school or possibly you might have a 30-minute commute to your work or enterprise workplace, you should use that point to spend with God; you possibly can take heed to the audio Bible, pray, worship God, no matter you wish to do.
Tip 3: Set an alarm
You can set your alarm a little sooner than you usually get up and use that point to spend with God. Instead of waking up at 6:30 am, set your alarm so you possibly can get up earlier (like 6:00 am) and use that additional time and spend it with the Lord. Perhaps, you might have a 30, 45 minute, or hour lunch break, use that point as effectively and spend it with Jesus. You can go to mattress a little later than you usually do or put together for mattress a little earlier so you might have possibly 15 to half-hour of free time to get into God’s presence.
Tip 4 is for all of the stay-at-home mothers and dads/ homemakers on the market who additionally discover it troublesome to have free time. My suggestion(s) is to attempt your greatest to place the youngsters to sleep on the identical time. If their nap instances are within the afternoon, attempt to get all of them asleep (or have quiet time) on the identical time and use that point with God, or if your youngster/kids will sit down and be a part of you throughout your prayer time. You could make it a household occasion!
Make daily a day to prioritize spending time with God. I do know life will get busy, I do know if instances get onerous, however we don’t have any excuses. One factor now we have to recollect is that the satan does not need us to develop in our relationship with God. He does not need us to hope, learn our Bible, and search God’s face. Because he is aware of that after we do, we develop in God, we perceive God extra, and turn out to be stronger Christians.
Brothers and Sisters, be inspired!
