My Daily Devotional


Don’t Get Too Busy

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
Ephesians 6:11

I know that everyone stays busy as their work, their school, their family and all the other things that they must do, puts a strain on the time they have each day. There are days when you probably feel that you could not squeeze another task into your busy daily routine. Your schedule is filled with every minute of your day accounted for. However, what you may be forgetting to schedule for, is a time for God. A few minutes with God each morning could make your entire day more enjoyable and peaceful. The Bible tells us that we need to make God number one in our lives each day. God’s greatest commandment was to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. How can we show Him we love Him if we forget, or don’t take the time to even spend a few minutes at the beginning of our day with Him? Just a few minutes of our time each morning, praying and thanking Him for all the things He gives us, is not asking too much. Just a few minutes reading the Bible each morning will not be wasted time, but will be the best use of your time you could ever imagine. Taking a few minutes at the beginning of your day to honor and worship God will not use up your time, but will have the opposite effect, as it will make the rest of your day more productive. The few minutes you spend with God will impact the rest of your day, as God’s presence will follow you in the hours ahead. The wisdom you will get from reading His Holy Word, will let you make better decisions and choices, and keep you from giving in to the temptations that Satan will put in your paths. God will lead and direct you on the paths you should follow, and not lead you astray, when He is in your thoughts and mind each day. Praying and reading your Bible each morning, puts God in your thoughts and mind, and then He is there when you have to make a decision or choice, later on during the day, and will help you make the right decisions and choices. Spending time with God in the morning will keep Him in your thoughts and mind, and when you may be tempted to do something that is not right, will keep you from succumbing to the temptation. Taking a few minutes each day, even if you have to get up a few minutes early to do so, could be the most important time of your day. I realize that it is so easy in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives to not slow down and think about God. We get up in the morning and rush to work or get our children off to school. We don’t even take a few minutes to read our Bibles, or even to say a simple prayer thanking God for all that He has done for us. When God is telling us that He should be number one in our lives, He is telling us to give Him our first fruits, a few minutes of our time when we wake up each morning. This few minutes is so very important in our walk as Christians. Just taking a moment each morning to thank God for letting us have another day, and asking Him to watch over us and our families during the hours ahead, shows our reverence for Him. Reading just a few pages in our Bibles each morning, and making these words personal to us will keep the presence of God with us during the day. It will make our mornings more pleasant, and when the first attacks of Satan appear, we will be able to withstand them and not let them ruin our peace and joy. We need to have the presence of God in our lives each day to overcome the evil and the temptations that surround us. So take time for God today, put Him first in your life. Show Him that you love Him and He will in turn bless you.
