💛 Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Heaven Song" by Phil Wickham. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
❤ Daily Verse: Because of his grace he made us right in his sight and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.
☆ Titus 3:7 NLT
💜 Let's Talk About It: When I began studying this verse. I was immediately drawn to being made right in God's sight, but then I felt the Holy Spirit direct me to eternal life.
What an amazing promise...eternal life! I don't know about you, but time is such a constant factor in my day to day, it's hard for me to even imagine there will be a point in my existence that it won't matter anymore.
Trying to wrap my head around the fact that God loves me enough to spend forever with me is another thing all together as well. I know I'm not the only married person who has looked to heaven to ask, how long, Lord?!
While I kid, I know there are some who do have that mindset because I once had it myself. But nevertheless, time is such a precious gift from God.
It helps us perceive the importance of our assignment. It helps to prepare us and ensures we are utilizing our resource of time properly.
Many of us go through our day to day not realizing how much time we waste. The truth is, until I took a week to unplug, (and yes, from literally everything - I either spent time in the Word or with my family - that was it) I didn't think I could find enough time to read the Bible every day.
It was the first fast God called me to and it showed me how much time I wasted worrying about worldly ideas, watching TV, glued to SM, or simply chose to be idle and slothful.
It's true. It was during that week God broke off my inability to find time for the Bible. But God went even a step further and helped me to understand the Word at a deeper level during that fast as well.
I don't know how much time you spend with Jesus daily, but I want to encourage you today not to waste your time now. Don't think you can wait until heaven to get to know Jesus. Would you let someone move into your home without knowing them? What makes you think God will?
I encourage you friend, stop putting off for tomorrow what you are supposed to be doing today. Make time for Jesus.❤
💚 Prayer: Dear God thank you for the promise of eternal life. Lord, I am so grateful I do not have to fear death, and because of that, I don't have to question your love and faithfulness as your prove it in your promises. Thank you Lord, for helping me learn that knowledge of your Word is absolutely necessary for me to walk through this life and fulfill my assignment. Thank you Lord, for creating me with purpose. Help me to see where I may be wasting time God, and if so, help me to better utilize it. May your will be done, Father. I love you Lord and give you all the praise Jesus, amen.
