Are you in a hurry to get to no where? Do you comment on drivers who make your daily commute a stressful experience? If so, perhaps you are trying to rush ahead in life without God’s help.
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! – Psalm 46:10
It’s ironic how much difference spending 15 minutes with God can make in a person’s day. Whether its reading a chapter of the Bible, following a devotional or time spent in prayer, this effort spiritually prepares individuals for their day. While things may fall apart around you, the Holy Spirit uses the knowledge you gain from a quiet time to develop perseverance.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:6
Unfortunately, this year I’ve been eager to rush ahead in life, often without God’s help and guidance. Subsequently, 2015 has achieved lackluster results. If I’ve learned one thing, leaving the house without the Lord has left me more irritable, less productive and not the person I want to do. Therefore, the next time you feel like rushing out the door, slow down, make time for God and trust in the Lord for the day at hand.
