Are you spending some time alone with God each morning? If not, do you make time in the evening or some other time each day?
This post is especially for those who say they don’t have time to meet with God each day.
Surely you will agree that nothing on your agenda could be more important than time with God.
Perhaps you’ve experienced a great struggle to make it happen. Does it seem there are endless interruptions to your plan to have a quiet time with the Lord?
Sometimes expressing something in a different way is very enlightening. So I’m going to list a few different ways to say there isn’t time for meeting with God each day.
- I have more important things to do than spend time with God
- I’m fully capable and ready to plunge into my day without consulting with the Lord
- Jesus will have to wait
- I’ll take the time to meet with God when I’ve done everything else I need/want to do
What do you think about those statements? If you are a follower of Jesus, I know you don’t agree with any of them. However, wouldn’t it be more truthful to say something from the statements above than to claim there isn’t enough time to meet with God?
The undeniable truth is that you will find a way to do what you truly want to do!
When meeting with God each day becomes your top priority you will find a way to make it happen.
What if you lack the desire to devote time to meeting with God? If this is the case, consider asking God to give you the desire to spend time with Him. You may soon be surprised by how quickly your desire can grow.
The next step for most people is simply setting your alarm clock for an earlier time.
NOTE: If you are not accustomed to spending any time with God at the start of your day, you should begin with a little time and add more as you go along. It is better to increase the time gradually than struggle with unreasonable expectations and end up quitting the habit before it can be established.
Day by day you will be investing your time in the best way!
