“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
So, have you got your day all planned out? How about the week or now that the kids are out of school, the Summer? Be careful that you don’t pack so much into your schedule, whether it is for one day or the Summer that you don’t have time for God. Don’t wait for a tragedy to seek God and His direction for your life and your schedule.
It is so easy to get so caught up in everything else in life that God gets put on the shelf until we “need” him. How would you feel if your friends and family treated you that way. Do you close friends only call when they need something from you or do you enjoy everyday life with them and that is what has built that relationship? If you want a close relationship with God, then you must spend time with Him! You will find Him if you seek Him with your whole heart! (Jeremiah 29:13) God wants an actual relationship with you, not just an acquaintance relationship. He wants to walk through life with you, every moment of every day, but He won’t force His way in to your day, He is waiting for you to invite Him in.
Slow down! God has promised not to put on us more than we can handle, but so often we do that all by ourselves, by cramming everything we can into our schedules and lives! Stop! What is important to you? Take the time needed today to set your priorities! Pray about it! What are God’s dreams for your life? Have you asked Him that and have you squeezed those things into your schedule!
I would like to encourage you today to just be still for a moment and ask God for His direction in your plans! Be still for a moment and remember who He is! If you are in need of His touch today on your life, take the time to just be still and allow Him to fill you with His joy, hope, and power! Praise Him for who he is and rest in Him today! The best is yet to come!
“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you are right!” ~ Henry Ford
