Many times,we do not feel Jesus because we have relaxed in spending personal time with Him. We often procrastinate prayer,praise and worship,fasting reading the bible,evangelism etc. Before we realise it,it has become a week and then a month or more of not spending any valuable time in the presence of God. We become so busy with looking for money to put food on our tables,forgetting to build a relationship with our Saviour Jesus Christ.
It is not bad to work as the bible says man shall eat from the sweat of his brow. Working without according any time to God however becomes as idol as it consumes you all the time.
We should not give SOME time to God. We should make God the CENTRE and FOUNDATION upon which our ENTIRE LIFE is built upon. Seek first the Kingdom of God and everything else will be added to you.
Recently,I was talking about work with a Muslim at his home with my other colleagues and as soon as it was noon,he excused Himself stating that he had to pray.
I was amazed at this dedication and wondered just how many Christians would be bold enough to excuse themselves from a work colleague and say they had to pray.
We need to be baptised with the Holy Spirit for a true change of heart and ask Him to lead.
Have you noticed how easy it is to fall into sin and temptation when you’re far away from God. That’s because you’re fighting from the flesh while Satan is fighting you from the Spirit. Your spiritual being is too weak to fight back so Satan keeps overcoming you.
# PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
James 4:4 “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
