May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us-yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17 NIV
Read: Psalm 90: 12-17
Do you ever feel you just don’t have enough time? Are your days just too short? We all have the same amount of time. The clock is not extendable. GOD gave us all the same time; 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in a hour, 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, 4.3 weeks in a month and we still think we don’t have enough time.
How much time do you need? You have enough. It is not about having enough time. It is all about using your time more efficiently by setting priorities. So, what are your priorities? Are you setting priorities? Every morning, set out with your list of priorities. Establish the list from the absolute requirements to those things which are not so important. One priority is scheduling time to help others.
Is it get job done at all cost? In order to know success, we need to work smart not hard. We spend too much time correcting our mistakes when we did not do something right the first time. Distractions also have a tremendous impact upon our ability to complete a task.
Scripture tells us to rest. JESUS left HIS disciples many times to go alone to rest and to pray. We need to follow HIS example. Rest is essential for the body. Prayer is essential for the body, mind and spirit.
GOD has time for you. Do you take time for GOD? You will find you have more time when you give back to GOD the time HE has given you. Make GOD your most important priority. Then, you will discover you have more time for other things.
Today’s prayer: “HOLY LORD, Thank YOU for taking time to guide me as YOU would choose. Help me today to do all that needs to be done as YOU direct my thoughts and actions. I will give back to YOU the most important time each day. Amen.”
