Topic :Time Management
We took a short survey at our office of some of the habits people want to make and break, and right on top of the list was
“I want to form a habit of spending more time with God.”
We all have the same amount of time each day, but some people regularly find time to spend with God, and others never do.
Saying that we don’t have time to spend with God is simply an excuse. The truth is that if we spend time with God, He will multiply what we have left—like the little boy with the loaves and fish (John 6)—and we will end up with more time than we would have had by leaving God out of our schedule.
The truth is that at this moment, you are as close to God as you want to be. What we sow we will reap, and if we want
a bigger harvest, then we simply need to sow more seed.
If we want a closer relationship with God, then we need to spend
more time with Him.
My granddaughter, who is ten years old, recently asked me how she could spend more time with God, since she is so
busy with school and all her activities.
I thought that was really cute. She thinks she is busy now; I can’t imagine what she will think as life really gets into a full roar for her.
She has a very bad habit of being cranky in the mornings and wants to get over it, so I told her that the best thing to do is get out of bed
and spend the first five minutes with God. I thought five
minutes would be a good place for her to begin, and if you have not formed this very important habit, it might be a good
place for you to begin too.
A small beginning is better than no
beginning at all.
We need God, and we are no good without Him. He said,
“If you seek me, you will find me” (Jeremiah 29:13).
He is waiting for us to call on Him and talk to Him about every aspect of our lives. He wants to hear us say that we need Him, love Him, and that He is a vital necessity in our lives.
