"Later, God, Later"
Did you seek God today? Did you spend even a few minutes to thank Him for all he has done or even just to tell Him how much you love him? Or did you say “Later, God, Later”?
Joyce Meyer – Daily calendar – Sept. 25
A friend of mine had a vision once while she was praying. she saw the Father go into the homes of the people of America when they got up in the morning. He went in all ready to fellowship and talk to them. He got a chair at the table and sat down. The people got up, and they came, and they went throughout the day. They kept telling God, “Stay right there for just a little while, God. As soon as I get this done, I’m going to talk to You. I’m going to fellowship with You later, God.”
The end of the day came, and the girl who saw this said it broke her heart because she saw God, with slumped over shoulders, leave the homes. And no body had ever come to talk to Him that day.
If you don’t have time to pray and spend time with God, then you are too busy. Take the time to tell God how much you love Him, and develop a relationship with Him. If you don’t and you are born again (you’ve invited Jesus into your heart), you will still go to heaven, but you will have missed the joy of living a victorious life. (See Psalm 27:4 AMP)
I have been guilty of this. But to be honest I do not (and most certainly should not) have an excuse for not being able to spend even a few minutes just talking to God. We should all be able to find a little time each day to spend with our Lord. Tell him you love him, thank him for what he has done that day or week, ask Him for strength for the next day or help with a situation. Whatever it is just spend some time talking to Him. The more the merrier :) .
