A pianist once said, “If I do not practice for one day, I notice something is wrong. If I do not practice for two days, my wife notices something is wrong and if I do not practice for three days, the whole world notices something is wrong.” This is the same thing that happens when we fail to spend time with the Lord daily.
Spiritual growth is what determines healthy spiritual performances. Many are in a hurry to perform but have failed to get nourished and tutored by the Lord. Spiritual capacity is what guarantees spiritual progress. We must cultivate the habit of spending time with the Lord in the Word and in prayer daily until we are fully developed and equipped.
The believer must be willing and ready to sacrifice all he has to follow the Lord. The only way motivate young believers is by showing them how the older believers have surrendered themselves to follow the Lord. It is very easy for folks to learn from the lives of those ahead of them.
We must create quality time for God; we must always come out of the busyness of all affairs to attend upon the Lord. We must live a surrendered life; before you can live a sacrificial life, a heart of surrender must come into place. God will not use anything apart from Him.
Psalms 27:14 [KJV] – Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
Isaiah 40:31[KJV] – But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
CONFESSION – I spend quality time with God daily; I guide all my affairs with discretion. I am tutored and trained in the Word and by the Spirit. Glory to God!
