As the new year begins I am trying to work on my prayer and quiet time with the Lord. I can only get better if I try. I have to make the effort if I want to acheive the goals set before me.
I used to have a very good scheduled time to meet with the Lord but Life happens and we allow other things to take precedence. I keep hearing Paul saying, “Who cut in on you”.
The reality hits me at that point that I moved in on me. I allowed my time to be consumed. I listened to outside voices and choose to follow. When it comes down to it there is no one and nothing responsible for my actions, except me.
We have to take ownership of the things we do. We cannot play the victim card, because we are the problem that infects our lives. We hold the authority to bind and cast out demons in the name of Jesus Christ, but yet we can’t have the self discipline to read scripture and pray everyday. A few demons you might consider binding and casting out are Selfishness and Pride.
I need my time the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I would venture to say we all do.
How are you prioritizing your time with God?
