God and You
To every thing there is a season, & a time to every purpose under the heaven. Eccl 3:1
I know the objection- Who has time? Time to do the important things, the right things, the eternal things- It’s a common complaint and a valid one. What I’ve discovered is that the people who consistently have time alone with God are the people who have the energy and perspective to stay on top of their hectic “outer” lives. This comes from the inner peace and joy that the constant, consistent presence of God brings.
For our life to be geared toward heaven there must be daily periods of stillness and solitude with God. I urge each of us to do whatever is necessary to have these times of nurture with God, otherwise the enemy will wear us so thin that we will be unable to withstand him.
Don’t have quite times of prayer and meditation when you feel like it. Have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A believer is powerless without it.
