February 23, 2013 TIME IS ON OUR SIDE
When we get off track, we stop doing what we should be doing. When we get distracted, we end up going in a different direction for the day. Whatever got us off track possibly caused us do something different, think differently or act differently but only because we let it. Instead of getting off task when we are busy, we need to write down what is trying to get us off track and go to it later, if possible. Time is on our side when we decide to do God’s work following His plan and not the plans of others.
1 Corinthians 7:35 “I am saying this for your benefit, not to place restrictions on you. I want you to do whatever will help you serve the Lord best, with as few distractions as possible.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us stay on track for You. We know that time is on our side when we stay focused on doing what is Your will and not our own. We knot that others will try to get us off track with their agendas and we pray that You will help us to recognize this and show us how to stay on track for You. We pray these things in Jesus’ name and for His sake. Amen.
Distractions come in all shapes and forms. Living for God should be our main focus in all we do no matter what distractions come our way.
When we decide to let distractions keep us from doing God’s will, we aren’t putting Him first.
Time can be on our side when we focus on God all day and keep our actions in line with what He wants us to do.
Ecclesiastes 8:5 “Those who obey him will not be punished. Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right,” (NLT)
