Zechariah 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep. ~ When we make time in our daily schedules for the Lord and allow him to speak to us through his word, it will revitalize us and quicken us. His word is spirit and life. Just as we eat natural food to fuel our bodies, we need spiritual food to fuel our spirit man, to encourage and strengthen our soul for the journey of life.
When we set time aside every day, we are saying to the Lord, Here am I. We are telling him by our actions that we desire time with him. ‘They that seek me early shall find me’. I want to encourage you today that you determine to set time aside for the Lord every morning when you first get up even if it’s only for 15 minutes. (Constancy is key to growth) This will help you to set the order for your day by putting God as a priority. As our days go on and it gets busy, it can be very difficult for us to carve out time throughout the day and many times we end up giving God our leftovers. But as we make a determination to allow God to have access into our lives at the start of each day, it will bring forth encounters with him that will revive us, restore us, waken us, and bring us into places of activity in His kingdom. Let’s determine today to put the Lord first in our lives.
