Be Still (part 3 of 3)
This is our final discussion on slowing down our busy lives so we can spend more quality time with God. No wonder the mega busy people struggle in their spiritual lives. Their days are packed from end to end, so there is no time for prayer, no bible reading, no meditating, none of that; only rushing from one moment to the next, until they finally collapse exhausted at the end of the day. Instead of being rich and fertile with the blessings of a relationship with God, the lives of the busy are arid like a desert begging for a drop of water. Have you ever given thought to standing before God and explaining how you used the 24 hours he gave you every day, yet found no time for him? Satan! He is the author of all of this, because he knows how unstoppable we become when we walk with God. Remember his conversation with God about Job in Job 1? When God asked Satan if he had considered his servant Job (whom God described as being upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil). Satan instantly argued that it is because of the extreme blessings of God that Job is who he is. God proved just the opposite. In the end of it all, God demonstrated he blessed Job to the extent he had BECAUSE of who Job was, not what he did for Job. You see God rained his blessings on Job because Job opened his heart and loved God with it. If God seems far away from you, open your heart and move closer to him. If it appears God doesn’t care about you, ask yourself how much you truly care about him. Don’t allow the schemes of Satan to rob you of all the blessings God has promised you in Christ Jesus. Tell the world you are getting off of life's merry-go-round, throw away your God shoehorn and give God your time, attention and heart, and then watch the difference in your life. God is faithful and wants to pour out on you the blessings of heaven which are more than we can contain.
