Need More Time in 2023?
Updated: Jan 9
I hate wasting time, don’t you? Imagine living in a peaceful overjoyed state using every moment to fulfill God’s will and not your own.
It’s possible to actually sense you’re living in the perfect will of God, but the process of getting there may surprise you.
During the mad rush of Christmas, I went out to get a few needed items. After at least an hour’s search, I proceeded to the line. Fifty, maybe 60 people were ahead of me. I refused to wait another hour to pay for items it took an hour to find.
Frustrated, I prayed! Lord forgive me for wasting time when I could have been doing something more productive! Immediately, I remembered that I had recently spent more time doing, and not as much time resting in the presence of Jesus, reading His word
worshipping and listening. I’ve noticed that the more time I spend quietly with the Lord, the less time I waste!
Would you like to be more productive in 2023? The solution is not logical, but it works.
The more time spent in the presence of the Lord, the more you’ll sense the Holy Sprit’s guidance, peace, and wisdom leading you throughout your days, in the least things as well as in the great.
The Word adds length of days and years of life and peace. (Proverbs 3:2) Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways,
and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed. (Proverbs 14-18)
