John 4:24, “God is spirit. So the people who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
If you’re too busy to spend time with God, you’re too busy. Adjust your schedule, break stubborn habits, remove obstacles and hindrances. Find a quiet place void of distractions. Come with no agenda but to worship. No asking for anything, just an audience of one, singing your own song, making your praise about Him. 10 minutes. 10 minutes every morning. It’s such a small token of time when He’s given you the breath you breathe. If you find it hard to fill 10 minutes, begin to make a list of things you’re thankful for and read them off to Him.
Soon, 10 minutes won’t be enough. You’ll find yourself setting your alarm earlier and earlier. His presence is addicting. Your spirit will begin to crave time with His Spirit until you can’t stop thinking of Him. All throughout the day and when you wake at night, you’ll begin to hear Him calling you to that secret place where He can be with you and make you like Him. Then one day He’ll ask if you’re ready to be completely His, laying down your life long dreams, plans and hopes for a journey with Him. It’s when you say yes, forever yes, that your life becomes one with Him and all that matters is what pleases Him. Loving others isn’t hard anymore. Giving becomes second nature. All that He is, becomes all that you are. By giving up, you gain so much more. By surrendering, you gain access to everything He has. What a great trade-off! Worship-it’s a game changer!
Father, I worship You this morning. I praise Your holy name, the name that is above all names. You are my King, my Lord, my savior, my everything. You protect me going in and coming out. Your name is great and greatly to be praised. I lift up Your holy name today. I exalt You, great God. No one like you in all the earth. None can compare to Your greatness. I thank you for Your love, Your tender mercies, Your grace, the peace You give passes all understanding. It guards my heart and keeps my mind stable and steadfast to do Your will. It’s in Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
