In Gods Time!

How many times have you not received an immediate answer after praying.
You ask questions like "Where is God?"
"Why isn't He listening to me?"
"Does He exist?"

You know, how many times do you hear someone or people moaning because they just don't have enough time in the day. They cant accomplish anything or finish anything because they just don't have enough time. but then you see and hear about other people that get so much done, also have a full time job and  accomplish so much ie. giving of their time and giving of themselves to others in need.
How does that work?

No matter how hard we try it always seems as though we are not managing our time well.
It says in Psalm 24 that everything in this earth is Gods (incl. our time).
So, our time is His! God has giving us the freedom to choose what we do with the time, but it is still His. You can decide to go to church or when to go on holiday or read the Bible etc...
Everything you do, the money you earn, the things you get, the things you give to others are all Gods.
But, you say, it is mine. "I bought it". Think about where the opportunity of getting the money came from?

Everyone has the same time on this earth but its our discipline and stewardship of that time that differs between all of us. Your priorities determine how you use your time.
Example: God created a Day of Rest. The Sabbath day! What do you do on Gods Sabbath day? Do you rest? Priorities?

We need to align ourselves to gods priorities, not ours. Gods priorities are:
1. God
2. Others and ourselves

We must love God with all our heart and soul. That is what we should have as our first priority. God should be first in everything we do, think and say! Spend time with Him in prayer and worship and studying His word. But don't push God to only 1 day a week even. god should be No.1 everyday.

Then we need to prioritize others. This should be in the order of Spouse then children and then work and other relationships.
We cant say that we know that our family loves us...Show them!

We have to take care of ourselves. We are walking temples of the Holy Spirit. When we get reborn, God plants a seed in our hearts which we need to nurture and grow. We do this through faith and relationship with God through Jesus. God gives us His Holy Spirit in us so that we may put aside our own priorities and concentrate on Him. The Holy Spirit is a promise from God...IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU!

Think about how much time you spend on your own priorities and then calculate how you can change that.
Also when we pray to God, He does listen, He does act! It may not be in our time and that doesn't mean that He isn't doing something. God works in secret.
Take the birth of a baby for example. It takes 9 months for that baby to form and become a perfect child of God. the baby is secretly created inside of another body.
God is at Work!

When we pray, Know that God is listening and know that He will act, be it part of His will for your life!
Bless You.
