Default Prayer: Our Time Saver

Prayer: Our Time Saver

Psalms 143:5-12

What's the first thing you think about when you wake up? Are your thoughts instantly focused on the day ahead, or are they centered on the Lord? Although most of us have busy lives and are involved in activities that consume much of our time and attention, the most important and timesaving part of each day is that which is spent in quiet solitude with God.

Yet many of us feel so rushed that we donít think thereís enough time for the Lord. We immediately jump onto the treadmill of life and then wonder why weíre so frustrated, confused, and dissatisfied. Even if our desire is to follow God, we donít know where Heís going since we havenít stopped to get directions for the day. Without daily communication, no one can have intimacy with Christ.

Perhaps the problem is our own human logic. We think spending time reading the Bible and praying each morning will result in having less time and lower productivity. However, when we seek Christís direction and wisdom for the day and invite Him to control our lives, Heíll accomplish more through us than we can do by ourselves. He will give us wisdom for good decisions, increase our strength and energy, and free us from time-wasting anxiety.

Ask yourself, Am I too busy for the Lord? If the answer is yes, then youíre denying yourself the blessing of an intimate relationship with Christ. When you make time for Him, Heíll fill you with peace and joy, guide your decisions, grant you wisdom, empower you to obey, make you more productive, and comfort you with His love.
