“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 NKJV.

Thoughts for Today

Mostly many admit that they don’t have “enough time to do the things they want to in their daily lives.” These were the findings of a recent Gallup survey. Parents particularly are stressed for time, and most adults with children under 18 say they have too little time.

As this survey demonstrates, many people have very busy lives. They rush about taking care of personal, family, or business tasks. When they have “free” time, they relish the opportunity to indulge in personal hobbies or pleasures, to relax and “enjoy life.”

As a result, their schedules are full. So how does God fit in? Many people take time for a short prayer in the morning or night or at meals. Some spend a few moments reading the Bible or a devotional book. But is this really the way we should act toward Almighty God?

The Bible commands us to “be still,” to “cease striving” (NASB), and in that stillness to have an encounter with God. But we cannot be still if our minds are preoccupied by the pressures of family, finances, and work—if God is only a parenthesis in our day.

Being still means eliminating distractions and focusing on the Lord. It means waiting in His presence and listening to Him. It means reading and studying His Word. It means having regular, dedicated times of prayer and communion.

Today, remember that God is present in your life—right now! You can call on Him at any time, day or night. But you have the choice to ignore Him or spend time with Him.

Don’t let a busy schedule prevent you from communing with your Heavenly Father! Remember that He’s the source of all wisdom, and in His presence all things are possible.

Never take God for granted. Make Him your highest priority. Be still before Him.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
Help me to quiet my spirit. Forgive me for taking You for granted. You are more important to me than anything else. I long to hear Your voice. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
