If I Only Had More Time In My Day!

Why do we often mistake ‘busyness’ for ‘productiveness’? Pastor Adrian Rogers said, “If the devil can’t make you bad, he will make you busy.” Busyness is a tactic the enemy employs to get us off track and to steal our time. For example, you will find yourself having more time for everything except prayer, bible reading, bible meditation, devotional, evangelism, interceding, tithing, attending church, praise, and worship. John 10:10 reminds us the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. And, one of our most precious non-replenishing commodities that’s incessantly fleeting and always under fire is our time. If I had a dollar for every time, I heard someone say, “I wish I had more hours in my day!” The enemy loves to distract and inundate Christians with activities that don’t contribute to our spiritual welfare. In Luke 10:38-42, we find Mary at the feet of Jesus, listening to his teaching and conversely Martha running around doing 100 & 1 things around the house. Jesus didn’t rebuke her but he explained to Martha that she was ‘doing the most’ and that perhaps she should be more like Mary and prioritize her time with him and not her chores. Martha’s busyness caused her to separate herself from the Lord, while Mary’s stillness intimately connected her to Christ. There is a reason why we all yearn for peace! Mainly because that’s where true rest, quietness, and joy resides. Don’t allow the enemy to fool you; peace can be found here on Earth, within the very spirit and breath of God that’s lives in you. The only prerequisite to experience it, is for you keep Christ at the center of your life and everything else will fall into its proper place! Question is, what’s on your itinerary today??
