Seed of Destiny 23 June 2018
Saturday, 23 June 2018 – PRODUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT OF TIME
(FROM JUNE 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SATURDAY 23RD JUNE, 2018
SCRIPTURE: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Anytime you make up your mind to do beyond ordinary work, you will get gain beyond bargain.
Yesterday, we saw what to do with time in order to handle it profitably. We saw that to spend time with God at the place of prayer and for personal development, amongst others, is to spend time profitably.
Seed of Destiny 23 June 2018
Today, we want to look at other things to do with time in order to spend it profitable:
1. Spend time in creativity or creative effort
This is using your mind to arrive at better solutions in life and identify ways to do your work better or more efficiently. It is sitting down to think: how can this home become better? How can my wife and I live better together? How can I become better at what I do? What can I do to ensure more effective time management? How can I manage the administration of my office better? Anytime you make up your mind to do beyond ordinary work, you will get gain beyond bargain.
2. Time with family and friends
This is time spent on profitable relationships. Spend time with the people that have something to add to your life. Spend time with people at higher realms. Spend time with your wife and children to pray and plan together; give them instruction from God’s word and what to do in life.
3. Time in recreation or rest
There is a need to spend time in exercise, relaxation and rest. God worked for six days and rested for one day. There is no human being that can work like God, yet He saw the need to rest. It is important to refresh your life with rest.
4. Time for reviews and refocusing.
Spend time to review your life in order to refocus and re-fire. Review what you are doing well and what you have to discard in order to become better at what you do; devise strategies on how to be more efficient and productive.
Beloved, as you make up your mind to spend time in the ways outlined above, your time will be maximised and your life will be more profitable.
Remember this: Anytime you make up your mind to do beyond ordinary work, you will get gain beyond bargain.
1. Spend time for creativity or creative work.
2. Spend time with friends and family.
3. Spend time in recreation and rest.
4. Spend time for reviewing your vision and refocusing on them.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace and discipline to spend time profitably, in Jesus’ Name.
