Get A Life

In spending time with your Creator you will discover that He has a purpose for your life.  Think about that in light of the definition for the word roam, which is “to move about without purpose or plan; wander.”

We, in our flesh nature, tend to want to roam, but God has a route for us.  If we are wandering, we will go astray.  It will be much more difficult to go astray if we are spending time with God and learning to know His voice.  Look at what Jesus said about getting a life.

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  Luke 9:23-24

People call spending their regular time with God various things:  Daily Time, Devotions, God Time, Quiet Time, Prayer Time, etc.  I call it Daily Time because I firmly believe that we are supposed to meet the Lord daily!  Other scriptures use the word daily on this subject.  Everyone knows that the word daily means every day, so I will spare you a dictionary definition this time.  Check out these verses:

So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may daily perform my vows. Psalm 61:8 NKJV

Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. Psalm 86:3 KJV

Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Psalm 145:2 NKJV

Daily Time to me means:

Determining
Again
I
Live
Yielded

Today
I’m
Maintaining
Evidence

We see in the Bible that Jesus followed a pattern of regularly setting time apart to be in the Father’s presence.  Jesus needed to do it, shouldn’t we? (Matthew 14:23; Mark 6:46)  Whether we know it or not, the devil is plotting against us continually! (Psalm 42:10)

There’s a war between your flesh and spirit.  The stronger one is going to win.  You must build up your spirit man so it wins against your flesh and the devil.
