Spending Time With God

I learned a simple truth from a great evangelist. He always says; “you can’t expect God to anoint you if you don’t spend time with him.” The word is clear about seeking the Lord with all of our hearts and that he is supposed to come first in our lives.

One of the most important things we need to be careful about is getting too busy for God. Oftentimes, people will be doing a lot of great things for the kingdom of God and neglect spending time with Jesus.

When we have been with Jesus it is recognizable. The Holy Spirit within us brings a comforting presence to those around us. Our smile is seen as not just an ordinary smile but one that releases joy. Compassion flows through us and people can tell that we have been with Jesus. Take time to be with Jesus, make time to pray and read God’s word today

Acts 4:13
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

Prayer: Lord help me to recognize the importance of spending time with you more than what I already do. I don’t ever want to get so busy just doing good things that I break having daily fellowship with you. I really want people to know that I have been spending time with Jesus.

Pressures in Life

We are always going to have pressures. The Lord told us that in this life we will have tribulations and trials. Take a look at the scripture below and you will see that Jesus knows what the difficult things are all about that we face daily. He was no stranger to suffering.

Hebrews 5:7-8
During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered. read Pressures in Life
