This is my first post, and I must admit I have somewhat procrastinated writing this, for some time. So it’s quite appropriate, time would be the subject.
Is it just me, or have you noticed how little time there is now a days. I’m sure you’ve heard more than one person say, boy, where has this year gone?
And that’s the truth of it, isn’t it? Where has the time gone, so much to do, so little time to complete the task, we take on.
Technology has gone totally crazy, new gadgets come on the market before we have even figured out everything the old ones can do. With the new smart phones, we want unlimited data. But sadly with unlimited data, comes but yet, more theft of our time.
Everywhere you look, and you don’t have to go far, everyone is on their communication device, only their not actually communicating.
Did you know, God has always had the original unlimited data plan? Anytime, any place, anyway you want to communicate with Him, He is accessible 24/7.
With God, we have unlimited access, but choose to limit the time we give and spend with Him. We come to church, or maybe give God 1-2 hrs. out of a 168 hr. week, but yet expect amazing results and blessings (as if we had spent all our time with Him) for the minimal time we do spend.
If there ever was a minimum investment, with maximum results, our relationship with God, would be the gold standard of investments. God gives so much to us, and in comparison we give so little in return! Makes you think twice, about the saying, the more you put into a relationship, the more you will get out of a relationship!
As we think about what lies ahead for us, the trials, testing, and tasks we face, both in our church’s and personal lives, often we become enamored with the daily things, and that’s just what they are, things!
They are time stealers! They come and they go and sooner or later, everyone comes to the realization that, this to shall soon pass. Call it what you want, I call it drama and Gods people, really shouldn’t have so much drama, but you see…..
The accuser will use whatever he can, to keep you occupied with life, so you will forget what matters the most, which is your time with God!
Do you notice the key word here, you become occupied, you will this, you can do that, you, you, you. Most times the blame really shouldn’t be put on the accuser, it should be put on (ouch) us!
We like to think our capabilities can deliver the grand life, we’re looking to live, but if that were the truth, more people would walk around saying with conviction, “it’s a Wonderful Life”
Have you ever noticed how many unhappy people there are in the world, how they think everyone and everything owes them what they Want! They don’t like the way they look, or the clothes they have, or the car they drive, etc. etc. etc. Everytime they begin to describe happiness, their description begins with if only this, or this only that. Happiness, sadly and I hate to be the one to break the news to you, is not found in things.
We become disheartened, because sometimes we feel we have little to offer and what lies ahead is too great.
The Word, tells us God will use what we have, in a great way if we will let Him. After all, if God can move a mountain with only a mustard size portion of our faith, how much more can He do for us, if we will willingly, give Him what we really have to work with!
If we are willing to put our little into Gods hands, what we have is not limited to our capabilities anymore. Our portion, is not limited at all, when we place what we have into the hands of the one who doesn’t even have the word impossible, in His vocabulary!
Impossible, with your faith in God’s abilities, becomes I’m Possible. And you are, not because I’ve declared this to be true, but God’s Word has. TBS (the Bible says) with God, “all things are possible!”
So I encourage you, to give your all to the One who makes your way for your-every waking moment. Scandalous God inspired, breathe taking moments are waiting for your arrival.
