Day and night go by!
One day turns into another, weeks and months seem to fly by!
Time runs faster and faster as we make ourselves busier and busier!
Stop!… I have to force myself to slow down and ponder: “Am I placing His kingdom first?”
I realise that I spend so long working on the things that I can see, meanwhile His word tells me that:
‘… Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’ Hebrews 11
Shouldn’t I then be focusing on those unseen things? Yes, for sure! But the Lord is able to, and often does, use the things which are seen to build those that are not seen.
Can I then just do whatever I want?
The truth is… As the Lord has a plan for our lives, so does our spiritual enemy, and if he can keep us, the children of God, occupied and distracted, he will definitely gladly do so!
My prayer today is that all of us place God first in whatever we do and wherever we are.
If we have faith and keep our eyes fixed on the everlasting reward God has promised us, He will regard our hearts and use us in any situation!
Always remember, it is not our duty to decide what the Lord can accomplish through us! Simply have faith, trust Him, and keep labouring for His kingdom!
“I shall be satisfied when I awake in your likeness”
