TIME OUT FOR GOD
We need to stop making excuses about why we don’t have the right relationship with God. He is waiting to spend time with us every day so we can build the relationship He wants us to have with Him. It isn’t up to anyone but us. It’s our individual choice. Satan has a way of tempting us to do wrong. The world has a way of wanting us to blend it with the people who are conforming to it. We need to take time out for God before we do anything else, every day.
Romans 5:18 “Yes, Adam’s one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ’s one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to move away from the things of the world today so we move closer to You. We know that You are waiting. We know that even though there is sin in the world, You are here as well ready and waiting for us to spend more time with You. Help us today to take time out for You and bring us to the right relationship with You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
When we take time out for God every day, He will draw us closer and closer to Him.
We don’t have to be like the world. We have a choice. We can choose God.
Taking time for God each day is our choice. Putting Him first in all we do will give us the peace and strength we need.
Isaiah 49:8a “This is what the LORD says: ‘At just the right time, I will respond to you. On the day of salvation I will help you.’”
