God Is With Us Every Day
How can we be Christians and not spend time with God in His word everyday?
I was listening to a radio broadcast yesterday and this was one of the talking points which really touched my heart.
Do we not think that spending time with God in His word is that important?
Is God just a God for Sundays?
Do we really believe?
There are a many more questions that could be raised on this point.
Spending time with God each and every day is important. We should start each day with Him. It will give us the strength we need to make it through the day, having a better attitude, knowing God is with us.
God is 24/7/365 days a year. He is here with us.
I do not think that it is because we do not believe. I think that we allow other things to take precedence over God which change our priorities.
We can say that we are to busy.
We tell God to wait a minute, something else came up that we feel has to be done first.
In doing this do we think that God will not say the same back to us when we finally come around to spending time and asking for something from Him?
It is very important to have our priorities right. God needs to be first in our lives and why shouldn't He be? We can allow out 15 minutes each morning to spend with God. We do not have to think that if we do not spend an hour or two with Him then what is the use?
Every minute of our lives are important. Don't let the things of this world come between us and God.
1: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2: Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3: For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5: Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6: For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7: Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
8: Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9: For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10: Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
11: And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12: The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13: Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14: But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
