TOPIC: Spending Time with God
Scripture: Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7 (AMPC)
We all have the same amount of time each day, but some people regularly find time to spend with God while others never do. I have found that when we say we “don’t have time to spend with God,” it’s simply an excuse.
The truth is, if you spend time with God, He will multiply what you have left. Like the little boy with the loaves and fish who gave Jesus his small lunch for use in feeding thousands of people and ended up with more food left over than he began with (see John 6:1–14), you will end up with more time than you would have had by leaving God out of your busy schedule.
At this moment, you are as close to God as you want to be. What you sow, you will reap, so if you want a bigger harvest, then you simply need to sow more seed. If you want a closer relationship with God, spend more time with Him. He wants you to find more peace and joy in His presence.
Prayer Starter: God, I want to get as close to You as I can get. Help me make spending time with You a priority and I believe you will multiply the rest of my time. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
