Have you ever just woke up and next thing you know the day is gone? The older I get the faster days go by. I am fining that time is slipping away from me. I digress, what do you do with your time? I lay here in bed at 5:24 A.M. thinking I haven’t had the time to put up all the content I have for this blog, I haven’t had the time to study the Word of God in 2 days, my kids were being watched for 10 hrs yesterday, I don’t eat breakfast, I can continue for a while. The point is this is a tactic by the enemy. Work is so busy you have no time to breathe, kids throw tantrums, or someone calls, you get in an argument, etc. The thing to remember is the goal of the enemy: John 10:10 (KJV) 10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
What satan seeks to take from you is your FAITH. Faith is the shield when it comes to the armor of God. (Ephesians 6:10-13) Going deeper, what is the purpose of a shield? It’s the first point of defence in an attck. It’s large and heavy. Thick so it can’t be easily broken through. If you lose your faith the battle is much harder, actually it always means a backslide with God. Why? Because without FAITH it’s IMPOSSIBLE to pleases God. (Hebrews 11:6) Think about where your time goes, and how much of it you give to God. Write out a schedule daily and purposefully allot time with Jesus. How will you ever get to know Him if you don’t talk to Him, don’t read about Him, don’t marvel at who He is and what He’s done for you in your life? How can you hear Him when he is speaking to you if you are too busy to be still and listen? (Psalms 46:10) God is a jealous God, He seeks your attention and conversation and time more than any person on this earth ever could. (Exodus 34:14) I’m a single mom of 2 and life can can easily over take my time. I find time for Jesus because He is the most important thing in my life. Chat with Him as you drive, or shower, or clean, etc. Pray in front of and with your family, especially kids. They are learning how to have a relationship with God by watching you. Read the Bible in front of them and with them. The greatest thing my daughter asks me is what scripture I have for her next to memorize. The Word of God is engraving to her heart and knowing the Word is the most POWERFUL to slay the enemy. It’s the sword in the armor of God. I have been so blessed to have had Shane. I was seeking the Truth about God, and so God heard me, divinely setting up our relationship. Allowing me to have Shane’s love, to be in love with, and learn from God’s chosen Profit. What better Master besides God Himself? Am uncommon teacher needs an uncommon student. Elijah and Elisha. (2 Kings)
