Sometimes it may seem like the hours or time spent with God don’t really matter. “After all God sees my heart. He understands my busy schedule. His Grace is sufficient for me. I am in relationship with God and I do His will”.
Have you noticed how the length of church services have been shortened? and the shorter the better. So we can go home and rest/prepare for monday. Lol! Well it is in His presence that we are fueled for monday and the entire week.
Yes, we are encouraged to start in ‘baby steps’. If u can’t pray or study an hour at a stretch, start with 5 minutes. But its in the hope that His presence will strengthen you and you will grow so much that 5 minutes will become 50minutes and even 5hours and more. This relationship is not a routine or a trendy diet plan. It is a transformation process. As we keep our eyes on Jesus, we are becoming more like Him whom we have received. It’s a good thing this relationship is not based on our effort. Its a good thing Love is not dependent on our strength.
Bottom line, the relationship is in the hours and the hours get drowned in the Love of the relationship. Suddenly 24hours isn’t enough. Every minute wants to be spent talking, laughing, singing, crying, hugging, jumping, dancing with LOVE!
Stretch your self. Stretch in prayer, stretch in devotion. Eat His Word, Drink His Spirit. Soar…Let LOVE carry you.
