THRIVE: With limited time left how will you use the time you have left?


Be it a child visiting for the weekend. Be it a child graduating from high school. Be it a child heading off to college in a couple months. Be it your parents leaving in a couple days. Whatever the case, we need to be good stewards of our time and make the most out of it.

Ever heard from people with terminal illnesses and how they start to live each day like it could be their last? Ever considered living every day like it will be your last in order to make the most of it? Do you think it would change your priorities? your schedule? your focus? your life? Realistically we all have a limited time left here on this planet, no matter if we are a baby or a senior, none of us are guaranteed tomorrow, and are called to make the most of our today!

So here we go, it’s Saturday morning! How will you choose to live out your today? What is a priority to you that you want and need to accomplish? What things are within your control and what things aren’t? What things would make it the best today ever? What would it take to make it a reality? What if you could do that every day?

Let’s make good choices today, being a good steward of the time we have, and choosing to thrive for the glory of God in and through it all!


Today’s Verse of the Day:

‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. ‘

Isaiah 43:2

THRIVE: Is it the time of year? Is it an age thing? Does anyone else feel like time is going faster?


Happy Friday-eve everyone! That’s right, tomorrow is Friday, can you believe it? Or is the week going slow for you? When I look at the kids in school, the seniors are finding things are going super fast. When I look at the younger kids, the feedback varies. Either way, most kids have less than a couple of weeks of school remaining for the year. With the work world and probably depending on what’s going on in various companies, the speed of time may seem or feel different. For some, they are in a waiting pattern that seems to be taking forever. For others, there is so much to do that time just flies. For others, the days are super long and exhausting. Wow, how time flies!

Can you believe how fast your kids have and are growing up? Can you believe how fast the years of marriage have gone by? Can you believe how fast time seems to be going?

Where are you focusing? Are you stuck in the past and so missing out on the present? Are you focusing on the future and missing out on the present? Are you making the most of your today because you have learned from the past and know that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed? Where are you focusing? Is that impacting your perception of time? and the speed at which time is going?

Ever considered what the Bible has to say about time? I found this list:

40 Best Bible Scriptures on Time

Can you imagine what life would be like and will be like outside of time? Consider how to God “one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day“. Imagine knowing the beginning and the end, God does.

No matter how fast or slow you feel the time is going today, are you ready if it is time for Jesus to return? Are you ready if it is time to meet your maker? Are you ready for the day ahead? How are you getting prepared? What are you doing to be prepared? Are you prepared in and out of season to give a reason for the hope that is within you?

This is the day that the Lord has made, so let’s rejoice and be glad in it! Let’s be ready to accomplish the good works God has prepared in advance for us to accomplish today! Let’s put on the full armor of God so we are ready and equipped for the day ahead!

Time is but another dimension of this life we live. We have length, width, height, and time, and who knows how many others. So let’s choose to use what we have today to the best of our ability, being good stewards so that one day we will get to hear “well done, good and faithful servant“.

THRIVE: Spending your time wisely…


After another incredible workweek is done, we need to be wise in how we choose to spend our time. We all have a limited amount of time and so we need to use it wisely. As I look back and consider all the time I got to spend with my oldest before they went off this year into a new world in which to serve, I am grateful to have made the choice even as part of taking the offer for that job back in 2013 to have chosen to request time off to get to spend with her. As I look back and consider all the time I got to spend with my middle as they are preparing to complete high school and head off to college and pursue a degree while getting to play collegiate soccer, I am grateful to have made the choices and even requesting the time off to be able to bring her to school this year. As I look back and look forward, I realize how important it is for me to spend as much time as I can with my youngest because he is in high school which means the clock is ticking for him to be graduating in a few years and so I need to spend my time wisely and make good choices around how I will spend my time with him. So this weekend I need to put first things first, seeking first the kingdom of God and allowing Him to take care of anything else on the list. He has provided me the opportunity and blessing of getting to be a husband of nearly 25 years and a dad of 3 incredible kids, so I know I need to choose to use this week in a way that will not only allow me to thrive but my family to thrive for the glory of God! Let’s make choices today that will be wise usages of our time!


‘The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. ‘

Are you ready to invite Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior?

THRIVE: God’s timing is perfect!


As we hit mid-workweek the words God’s timing is perfect came to mind. In the midst of the meetings and the conversations, the waiting and the delays, my hope and my trust are in God because even when I don’t see it He does. God’s never late! God’s rarely early! God’s timing is perfect!

Gods Timing is Perfect!

As I consider where things are at, I look to God to help those who are being driven by fear and worry and pray they will cast their cares upon Him. The responses took place out of worry and fear that create ripple effects to others who hadn’t felt much effect to this point and had been able to focus on getting their work done. The fear and worry over the unknown and trying to align with a view, a vision, a perspective that may not fully align with reality will produce even more ripple effects on more people.

Timing is everything!

Today rather than focusing on the unknowns and the uncertainties, let’s focus on God who is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Let’s focus on how He is trustworthy and dependable! Let’s focus on how He loves us and will never leave us nor abandon us! Let’s focus on how much we can trust Him, even in uncertain, unclear, and volatile times! Let’s lean in on what God’s Word has taught us about THRIVing and decide to pick the right battles! Let’s lean in on what God’s Word has taught us about THRIVing in the midst of struggles! Let’s lean in on what God’s Word tells us when it comes to perseverance!

God's timing is almost never the same thing as our timing, but His timing always proves to be perfect. Trust Him while you wait.

DaveWillis.org

‘Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. ‘

James 1:2-4

‘If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. ‘

James 1:5-8

‘But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. ‘

2 Peter 3:8-9

‘In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. ‘

Proverbs 16:9

‘There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. ‘

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

‘For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. ‘

Jeremiah 29:11-12

‘The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. ‘

Lamentations 3:25-26

‘My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son he delights in. 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 3:1-18

THE ONE YEAR DAILY INSIGHTS 
WITH ZIG ZIGLAR AND DR. IKE REIGHARD
FOR DECEMBER 25TH


THE FULLNESS OF TIME


MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:

‘Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.’

Galatians 4:3-5

Let’s take this and expand on it to have better context as well as more details by using the Amplified version to be able to better grasp being a child of God through Jesus Christ our Lord:

‘Now what I mean [when I talk about children and their guardians] is this: as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave even though he is the [future owner and] master of all [the estate]; but he is under [the authority of] guardians and household administrators or managers until the date set by his father [when he is of legal age]. So also we [whether Jews or Gentiles], when we were children (spiritually immature), were kept like slaves under the elementary [man-made religious or philosophical] teachings of the world. But when [in God’s plan] the proper time had fully come, God sent His Son, born of a woman, born under the [regulations of the] Law, so that He might redeem and liberate those who were under the Law, that we [who believe] might be adopted as sons [as God’s children with all rights as fully grown members of a family]. And because you [really] are [His] sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying out, “Abba! Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave (bond-servant), but a son; and if a son, then also an heir through [the gracious act of] God [through Christ]. But at that time, when you did not know [the true] God and were unacquainted with Him, you [Gentiles] were slaves to those [pagan] things which by [their very] nature were not and could not be gods at all. Now, however, since you have come to know [the true] God [through personal experience], or rather to be known by God, how is it that you are turning back again to the weak and worthless elemental principles [of religions and philosophies], to which you want to be enslaved all over again? [For example,] you observe [particular] days and months and seasons and years. I fear for you, that perhaps I have labored [to the point of exhaustion] over you in vain. Believers, I beg of you, become as I am [free from the bondage of Jewish ritualism and ordinances], for I have become as you are [a Gentile]. You did me no wrong [when I first came to you; do not do it now]. On the contrary, you know that it was because of a physical illness that I [remained and] preached the gospel to you the first time; and even though my physical condition was a trial to you, you did not regard it with contempt, or scorn and reject me; but you received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus Himself. What then has become of that sense of blessing and the joy that you once had [from your salvation and your relationship with Christ]? For I testify of you that, if possible, you would have torn out your own eyes and given them to me [ to replace mine]. So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth? These men [the Judaizers] eagerly seek you [to entrap you with honeyed words and attention, to win you over to their philosophy], not honorably [for their purpose is not honorable or worthy of consideration]. They want to isolate you [from us who oppose them] so that you will seek them. Now it is always pleasant to be eagerly sought after [provided that it is] for a good purpose, and not just when I am with you [seeking you myself—but beware of the others doing it]. My little children, for whom I am again in [the pains of] labor until Christ is [completely and permanently] formed within you— how I wish that I were with you now and could change my tone, because I am perplexed in regard to you. ‘

Galatians 4:1-20

POINTS FROM THE DEVOTIONAL:
  • How many prophesies would it take for you to want for it?
  • The promise of the Messiah was propesied may times over many years by many people.
  • Many people lived and died hearing about the Messiah and yet never getting to know or witness Him.
  • God’s timing is perfect and He wouldn’t be rushed throughout the thousands of years of prophecy.
  • When the moment was right, He sent Jesus who stepped out of heaven, out of eternity, and into this world at the right time in the right place to be able to come and give Himself as the final payment, the ultimate payment to rescue and reconcile us to God!
  • God’s timing is perfect and the why at that exact moment will be something we will need to ask Him when we get to see Him face to face.
  • God’s timing brings together a situation where the Roman empire had conquered most of the known world which created connections that didn’t exist when most people had been living in their own little communities and tribes for so long.
  • Today’s devotional points out how some amazing “coincidences” came to be duing the first-century Palestine.
  • Today’s devotional calls out three factors that they call CPR:
    • Communication
    • Pax Romana
    • Roads
  • Communication:
    • Before the Roman Empire, life was a group of tribes and roaming bands of hunter-gatherers.
    • After the Roman Empire, life was connected with Rome being stamped into and onto every culture through languages like Latin and Greek which made it possible for people to communicate across tribes and bands.
  • Pax Romana:
    • The Roman Peace
    • Rome’s millitary came in and conquered because of their superior armor, weapons, tactics, and leaders.
    • Rome’s conquering brought about peace throughout the land as fighting ceased.
  • Roads:
    • The Roman roads created the opportunity and ability for trade and commerce to happen and grow.
    • The Roman roads created a way for messages to flow across regions, areas, tribes, and bands.
    • The Roman roads were built so well that there are still many in existance and being used today in parts of the ancient empire.
  • Jesus Christ came, lived, and died at a time and place where the gospel message could explode across geography and cultures.
  • Jesus Christ came, lived, and died at a time and place where the message could reach every person.
  • Jesus Christ could have come at any time in history and yet He chose that exact time which offered so many advantages and opportunities for the message of hope, the message of love, the message of God, the Good News to spread the world over!

DISCUSSION TOPICS FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:
  • Why are these three factors important to the spread of the gospel after Jesus came?
  • What are some similar factors today that make it convenient to tell people about Him?

QUOTE(S) FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:

“A pregnant virgin gave birth to the promised Son of God at a time when the world was pregnant with possibilities.”

Ike Reighard

It’s Christmas day! Merry Christmas! Happy Birthday Jesus! I would be missing something if I didn’t just close today’s post by asking you if you have received Jesus yet. I remember that first aha Christmas back in 2000 when the reality of having a relationship with Jesus was revealed. Knowing the reality that it isn’t about rituals and routines but rather about having a living and intimate relationship with God! So if you haven’t accepted the gift of a relationship with Jesus yet, why not decide today on Christmas to invite Jesus into your heart? If you have been putting off starting a relationship with Jesus for that right moment, why not decide today to make it that moment? If you were looking for a reason, a season, a day, a time to invite Jesus into your heart why not make it today? Are you ready to make the rest of your life the best it can be? Are you ready to live a life that is transformed by the grace of God for the better? Are you ready to grab hold of God’s plans for you which are good? Are you ready to grab hold of God’s plans for you of hope and a future? Are you ready to never have to go through anything alone ever again because Emmanuel, God with us, will be with You every step of every day through the Holy Spirit?

Let’s pray:

Heavenly Father 
I come to you in prayer asking for the 
forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my 
mouth and believe with my heart that

It’s Time


MEMORY VERSE OF THE DAY:

‘Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”’

Mark 1:14-15

Let’s expand on this to get more context and use the Amplified version to grasp more details too:

‘The beginning of the [facts regarding the] good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written and forever remains in the [writings of the] prophet Isaiah: “Behold, I send My messenger ahead of You, Who will prepare Y our way— A voice of one shouting in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, Make His paths straight !’ ” John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins [that is, requiring a change of one’s old way of thinking, turning away from sin and seeking God and His righteousness]. And all the country of Judea and all the people of Jerusalem were continually going out to him; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins. John wore clothing made of camel’s hair and had a [wide] leather band around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And he was preaching, saying, “After me comes He who is mightier [more powerful, more noble] than I, and I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the straps of His sandals [even as His slave]. As for me, I baptized you [who came to me] with water [only]; but He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit.”

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Immediately coming up out of the water, he (John) saw the heavens torn open, and the Spirit like a dove descending on Him (Jesus); and a voice came out of heaven saying: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased and delighted!” Immediately the [Holy] Spirit forced Him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted [to do evil] by Satan; and He was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered continually to Him.

Now after John [the Baptist] was arrested and taken into custody, Jesus went to Galilee, preaching the good news of [the kingdom of] God, and saying, “The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins, live your life in a way that proves repentance; seek God’s purpose for your life] and believe [with a deep, abiding trust] in the good news [regarding salvation].” As Jesus was walking by the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon [Peter] and Simon’s brother, Andrew, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “ Follow Me [as My disciples, accepting Me as your Master and Teacher and walking the same path of life that I walk], and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed Him [becoming His disciples, believing and trusting in Him and following His example]. Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and his brother John, who were also in the boat mending and cleaning the nets. Immediately Jesus called to them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired workers, and went away to follow Him [becoming His disciples, believing and trusting in Him and following His example]. They went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. They were completely amazed at His teaching; because He was teaching them as one having [God-given] authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out [terribly from the depths of his throat], saying, “ What business do You have with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet (muzzled, silenced), and come out of him!” The unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions, and screeching with a loud voice, came out of him. They were all so amazed that they debated and questioned each other, saying, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits (demons), and they obey Him.” Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere throughout the district surrounding Galilee. ‘

Mark 1:1-28

POINTS FROM THE DEVOTIONAL:
  • Reflecting on the past, when do you think would have been the best time for Jesus to come?
  • Considering God knows the beginning and the end, what do you think made Him choose that time to send Jesus?
  • Isn’t it interesting how God chose to pick a time over 2000 years ago without all the ability to communicate we have today in an isolated place?
  • Imagine if we could have gotten Jesus to show up now with all the TV, Internet, and worldwide broadcasting abilities but God had a different plan that requires us to be involved (people to be involved).
  • When Jesus stepped out of eternity and into our space/time continuum people got the opportunity to choose to believe in Him.
  • Since that time everyone gets a time where they get the opportunity to receive the gospel and the choice is offered up to them.
  • Paul in Romans 1:19-20 shares how everyone gets enough light to decide or reject the Good News and so nobody has an excuse.
    • ‘For [God does not overlook sin and] the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, because that which is known about God is evident within them [in their inner consciousness], for God made it evident to them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense. ‘ — Romans 1:18-20
  • Jesus came humbly to this earth to give up Himself for the lives of others.
  • Jesus wasn’t some slick salesman with some flashy marketing campaign!
  • Jesus came as an iterant preacher to share the Good News.
  • Jesus came with his group of followers that He found along the way.
  • Today He comes through friends and family members, even strangers on the street
  • Today He comes through people reaching out to show they care about you.
  • Today He comes through people who reach out to pour love into the lives of others.
  • Today He comes through people who share the Good News they have heard and how it transformed their life!
  • Today He comes through people who share God’s love with them and then it is decision time if they will choose to receive it, accept it, embrace it, and move forward in it.
  • How about you? Do you have it? Do you share it? Do you want it? Do you need it?
    • If you want to get started today, skip to the bottom of this post and join me in the prayer, you can jump back up to this section to continue reading if you want.

DISCUSSION TOPICS FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:
  • Do you believe God orchestrates a momen (or several of them) for people to hear the gospel and respond, or is it just by chance?
  • How will you know if it’s time for your family members and friends to hear?

QUOTE(S) FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:

“I believe the greatest single mistake Christians make is not using sales knowledge and common sense in spreading the word about the benefits of walking through this life with Jesus Christ.”

Zig Ziglar

Today’s reading from Tanakh:


So where are you today? Are you ready? Is it your turn? Is it your time? Will you decide to invite Jesus into your heart? Let’s pray:

Heavenly Father 
I come to you in prayer asking for the 
forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my 
mouth and believe with my heart that 
Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the 
Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven. 
and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of 
Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose 
from the dead and I ask you right now to 
come in to my life and be my personal 
Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and 
will Worship you all the day's of my Life!
Because your word is truth, I confess with 
my mouth that I am Born Again and 
Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus 
Name, Amen

Time is precious: With 24hrs/day and 365(6) days a year and a limited number of years in a life time…


How are you choosing to spend your time? Are you cautious with your time? Are you careful with your time? Are you guarded with your time? Are you watchful of your time? Are you alert of how fast time is going? Are you attentive to your time? With but a short number of hours in a day, how do you choose to use them? How do you choose to prioritize what you will spend your time on? You may have heard that time is money, showing the value of your time? You may have a job and are working for some of that time and getting paid. You may be married and should be spending time with your spouse. You may have kids and so you need to make time for them because as much as some think quality time is enough, quantity time is just as important. How do you spend your day and time with God? Are you walking through life with Him so that He is a priority and gets a lot of your time or do you schedule out some time for Him and so need to figure and balance out His time too? Rest, you need to make sure you have time for rest! Be it your evening of sleep of 6-12 hours, your body needs rest to rejuvenate and restore. So how will you spend your time?

There are similarities between time and money in that you need to be a good steward of both. There are differences between time and money too though as you can’t make more time. One is finite and limited and the other is able to be generated and produced. Both require good stewardship though. Both require prioritization too. So you need to make a plan for both your time and your money. Time may have a value comparable to money or demonstrated by the amount of money you make over time but it is limited as we only get so many trips around the sun before our time on earth is up. So we need to consider how to make the biggest impact with that time in order to glorify God by accomplishing the cause He has created us to accomplish.

How will you use your time today? this coming week? this coming month? this coming year? and those yet to come?

How will you use your time to show the value of others in your life? God? Spouse? Kids? Family? Friends? Neighbors? Coworkers? Strangers? Workers at the stores and restaurants? etc.?

What will it take for you to make the most of your time today?

I missed 2 days and when I went to post on the 15th, I just realized I grabbed the devotional for the 14th and so updated the date above. I am going to have to catch up on 13th and 15th at some point. 

Keeping Track of Time

  • Are you using your time to the full or are you procrastinating?
  • Are you using your time to the full or are you putting off your chores or responsibilities?
  • Are you using your time to accomplish God’s purpose and cause for you and your life?
  • Are you using your time to accomplish something else? Are you using your time on the wrong pursuits?
  • Are you using your time to accomplish God’s purpose and cause or are you using your time to achieve selfish goals?
  • Are you using your time to accomplish your calling or are you using your time to get to the top and steamrolling over everything and anyone who gets in your way?

  • Are you using your time doing or worrying about what others are thinking?
  • Are you using your time doing or worrying about what might happen?

  • So will you use the time you have, in this battle of good vs evil, to accomplish God’s will rather than wasting it away?
  • Will you use your time for good in this battle through time?
  • Will you use your time to learn and know God’s will so that you can get it done for His glory?
  • How are you using your time?
  • Are you able to discern or analyze how well you are using your time?

  • Let’s use our time wisely! That does mean to accomplish God’s will in God’s timing!
  • Let’s use our time wisely! That does mean redeeming every moment we have as a gift from God!
  • Let’s use our time wisely! That does mean redeeming every moment in order to honor and glorify God!
  • Let’s use our time wisely! That does mean redeeming every moment with an eternal focus and purpose in mind!
  • Let’s use our time wisely! That does mean redeeming every moment to have a positive impact on those we love and He loves! That’s right let’s love everybody!

DISCUSSION TOPICS FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:
  • Wat are the most common ways you see people wasting time?
  • How would it change your life to realize that every moment is a gift from God to be redeemed and use to honor Him?

QUOTE(S) FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:

“I find the doing of the will of God leaves me no time for disputing about His plans.”

George MacDonald

Today’s reading from Tanakh:


So where are you at today? How are you using time time? Are you using it for good or are you wasting it? Are you using it to do God’s will or your’s? Are you ready to invite God into your life to walk it out with you and help you to live it to the full like His purpose and plan for you are? Remember the plans from Jeremiah 29:11 to give us a hope and a future? Remember the plans from John 10:10 comparing the devil’s plans vs Jesus’s plans? (“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”) So how will you choose to live your life? Will you invite Jesus in so that you can enjoy the time you have left? Let’s pray:

Heavenly Father 
I come to you in prayer asking for the 
forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my 
mouth and believe with my heart that 
Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the 
Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven. 
and have Eternal Life in the Kingdom of 
Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose 
from the dead and I ask you right now to 
come in to my life and be my personal 
Lord and Savior. I repent of my Sins and 
will Worship you all the day's of my Life!
Because your word is truth, I confess with 
my mouth that I am Born Again and 
Cleansed by the Blood of Jesus! In Jesus

How much of your life are you willing to share with God?


Are you someone who takes hold of the words “pray without ceasing” and as such are living your life in total relationship with God? Are you someone who takes hold of the words “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness” and as such are always looking for God’s will and God’s way for your life? Are you someone who takes hold of the words “lean not on your own understanding, trust God” and as such in every situation you are looking for God’s will and God’s way for your life? Will you trust God with the big things? Will you trust God with the little things? Will you trust God with everything? How much of your life are you willing to share with or give to God?

  • Let’s choose to allow God’s character to fill our hearts today!
  • Let’s choose to allow this everyday!

DISCUSSION TOPICS FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:
  • Rate yourself on a scale of zero (zip) to ten (doing great, thank you!) in focusing on God during difficult times in your life.
  • What are some situations you face today in which you need to rejoice, pray, and give thanks? What difference will it make?

QUOTE(S) FROM TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL:

“The Bible does say, ‘Pray without ceasing’, but I don’t see where it says you have to stop working in order to pray. As a matter of act, I believe that anybody who can walk and chew gum at the same time can work and pray at the same time.”

— Zig Ziglar

Today’s reading from Tanakh:


So where are you at today? Do you trust God enough to include Him all the time? Do you include God through the highs and lows through rejoicing, praying, and giving thanks? Might you consider starting today? Let’s pray:

Heavenly Father 
I come to you in prayer asking for the 
forgiveness of my Sins. I confess with my 
mouth and believe with my heart that 
Jesus is your Son, And that he died on the 
Cross at Calvary that I might be forgiven.

Heaven. Father, I believe that Jesus rose 
from the dead and I ask you right now to 
come in to my life and be my personal
