We are all a tiny part of a social circle in some form or fashion. We spend the mandatory 8 hours with our coworkers, chill out with family, and the majority of us are online using Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Tumbler, Instagram, etc… You get the point. At the end of the day, after spending time with the rest of the world, we just want a bubble bath and a good night’s rest so we can do it all over again tomorrow. In the midst of all this, when does God get his personal time? Is He even on our lists of priorities, or just an afterthought? Do you give Him a quick, “Thank you Lord for this day” in the morning and a rushed, “Lord you’re worthy,” in the evening? I’m just as guilty as everybody else. I’m not perfect at all. But I feel convicted because I know I haven’t devoted myself to quiet time with Him, and I know that I should.
God should be our first, last, and everything in between. We give excuses so often to justify reasons why we don’t have the time to have a true conversation with Daddy. One of the most overused excuses I’ve heard is, “God knows my heart.” We’ve got to do better.
FYI Break: When I’m writing to you, you, and you, I’m ministering to myself FIRST. These posts are my thoughts, my feelings, my heart’s story. This is my online journal, and basically, I just felt the need to share it with you. If you feel like you’re being pointed out, reevaluate yourself. It may be the beginning of your personal revelation.
It’s true. God does know our hearts. He knew us, and created an assignment for our lives even before our creation. But a real relationship takes time and requires sacrifice on both parts. Spirituality requires effort. We are a “microwave generation.” We expect everything to come quick and easy. Well, I’m a living witness, that we do NOT serve a “microwave” God. Ten years to us is merely a blink of an eye to God. We have to make a truly conscious decision to keep our relationship healthy.
Maybe we’ll have to sacrifice a bit of sleep sometimes just to sit down and listen to Him. Basking in His presence will put a completely different spin on every part of your day. Fasting also plays a crucial part in becoming more in tune with your Spiritual life. The most important person to Him is You. That makes YOU your greatest offering.
