Question of the day: Do you find yourself rushing trying to accomplish all of lives’s demands?
In the midst of trying to accomplish live’s demands, we miss out on many things. We tend to devalue the things that once mattered to us. We make no time in our schedule for those we love. We make excuses after the other. Most importantly, we miss out on sitting at the feet of Jesus. Ever find yourself waking up and not praying or spending time in God’s presence? You don’t even have time for breakfast because you are on the go. We’ve all been in that space before at some point of our lives. For many of us, we are just trying to get to Point B that we even miss out on the lessons/experiences in Point A. Many times, we rush only for us to miss out on our blessing. Throughout the day, God is trying to get our attention. God is always speaking but are you listening? It’s like looking for an answer in a book. You are reading so fast that you overlook the answer. As we go throughout our day, God is placing opportunities our way but because we are in a rush, we miss out on this simple act of obedience. In our key verse “Isaiah 30:21, we are reminded that whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” You see, you can turn to the left or to the right but if you are not in tuned with the Spirit of God, you will confuse it with the noise of the world and the enemy’s whispers. In John 10:27, God reminds us that “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” We are the sheep of His pasture.
When we are in a hurry, we don’t take heed to instruction. It’s like a teacher giving you instruction for a test. Because you are in a hurry to finish the test, you miss out on the questions your instructor said not to complete. When you are in a hurry, you are not still in God’s presence. You just give God five minutes and leave. When you are in a hurry, you don’t embrace the season that you are in. I remember my days in college. I cherished every moment that before graduating, I just looked back on my experiences and shed tears. I was going to miss all the times I shared with my friends, professors and organizations I was apart of. I knew the essence of embracing the season that I was in. Though I embraced my season of being in college, not many college students embrace their season of being in college. When you have an understanding that you can never get back certain chapters in your life, you will have a different perspective even in the wilderness. You’ve got to learn how to embrace every season. If a bus leaves you, you wait for the next one. You don’t go back home. All that rushing was unnecessary. Many times, God wants to speak to us but we make no time for Him. Today, stop and ask God what he’s trying to teach you in this very season of your life. What fruits of the Spirit are you lacking? Are you missing the lessons because you are in a rush? You see, there are people God have placed in your life. There is nothing coincidental in the package God has delivered to you. It is your responsibility to receive it. You have something to bring to the table and so are the people God has blessed you with in this season of your life. What you refuse to learn in this season will come back packaged in a different way. The lesson still remains. As you go forth into the day, take time to seek God. There’s someone He wants you to encounter today. That person may bring forth confirmation to what you have been praying about but how can you receive your blessing when your’e in a rush? Stop rushing the season you are currently in. Stop complaining. Start embracing. God is trying to teach you so many things. You have to go through the process before you get the Promise Land. Only if you will listen and draw closer to God, you will become more aware of his voice/assignment.
Stay Blessed & Encouraged. Jesus loves you. Have a lovely day ❤️
