January 18, 2020 TIME MANAGEMENT
There is not enough time in the world to read all the books, listen to all the podcasts, or go to all the classes on time management. There is a tremendous about amount of advice on time management. We can actually waste time trying to save time. That is why when we are reaching for our goals, we need to go by God’s word on time management. His timing is perfect and when we follow His will, everything will fall into place. God wants us to act now while the time is right and not hesitate to do His will. We should put God first in all things and He will take care of managing our time as He has done in the past and will continue to do for eternity.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.” (NLT)
1. Write what you need to do for God.
2. List what excuses you have been making.
3. Decide today to take action.
4. Allow God to manage your time by putting Him first in all you do.
Dear Lord, we know we spend too much time attempting to save time. Help us to live by Your timetable and not the world’s. Show us what You want us to do today while we are in Your presence and worshiping You. We don’t want to hesitate. We want to step out boldly and do Your will today. Help us, we pray. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God knows what we need to do at just the right time…always.
2 Corinthians 6:2 “For God says, ‘At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.’ Indeed, the ‘right time’ is now. Today is the day of salvation.’” (NLT)
We shouldn’t wait any longer to choose to believe in God, take steps to do His will and share His word.
Acts 22:16 “What are you waiting for? Get up and be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on the name of the Lord.” (NLT)
Hebrews 3:13 “You must warn each other every day, while it is still ‘today,’ so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.” (NLT)
Psalm 119:60 “I will hurry, without delay, to obey your commands.” (NLT)
