Read: Psalm 63
As our day begins, do we have time to devote to the Lord? We might be leading a busy life like running a company, or raising children, or taking care of important work. Do we give God the priority? Susanna Wesley was a prayer warrior. She gave birth to 19 children out of which 9 children died in infancy. Imagine the time and patience she required to raise her children. Yet she devoted her time to the Lord by putting her apron over her head, as it was difficult to find a quiet place in a busy household. Her children understood that their mother was not to be disturbed as she prayed. God heard her prayers by using her sons John Wesley and Charles Wesley for God’s kingdom. John Wesley preached to a million people about the salvation in Christ and Charles Wesley wrote over 9000 hymns that we sing today in churches.
In the Bible, we see that Daniel served in the king’s palace. He was indeed a very busy man. But he always sought to have fellowship with the Lord in prayer and thanksgiving. God filled Daniel with wisdom and understanding that he found favour among the various kings that ruled Babylon during his time. Also, King David spent his morning hours with the Lord, seeking wisdom and guidance for the day that lay ahead.
God loves to have fellowship with His children just as parents love spending time with their children. If we seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, all our needs will be met. We need to be still and know our mighty God. We need to feed on His Word, the Bible daily. His Word will be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, preventing us from making wrong choices and decisions in our life. His Word reminds us all the time and prevents us from sinning (Ps. 119:11). Jesus says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me” (Rev. 3:20). Are you willing to spend your time with the Lord? He wants to have personal fellowship with you.
