Talk To Him Who Strengthens You To Seek His Face Continually Through Time Management

Even though there are 24 hours in a day, it seems as if we aren't able to give God 60 seconds or 60 minutes of our time on a everyday basis in thanksgiving and adoration. Keep in mind that as a form of thanks and gratitude, we are to take time to reflect on the blessings of the Lord through spending time with Him in prayer. It all boils down to the point that we need to do better in time management.

The reason the kneeling prayer pillows were birth into my spirit was because I wanted to spend some quality time seeking God for direction, wisdom and just to be able to offer up thanks. In order to do this, time management had to become a priority.

You probably want to know how the kneeling prayer pillows played a role in this concept of seeking God's face. Well, first of all, the kneeling prayer pillows are made of velour/velvet fabric. This fabric feels fabulous. Secondly, the kneeling prayer pillow has embroidered on it "pray without ceasing". This is definitely a reminder to me that I need to pray daily. So, I decided to develop my time management skills and came up with a time and place.

Take 60 seconds and meditate on the following scripture pertaining to the giver of strength to seek God's face:

I Chronicles 16:11-13

Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders and the judgments of his mouth; O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones. King James Version

Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles and the judgments he pronounced, O descendants of Israel his servant, O sons of Jacob his chosen ones. New International Version

Seek the Lord, seek his strength and seek his face untiringly. O descendants of his servant Abraham, O chosen sons of Jacob, remember his mighty miracles and his marvelous miracles and his authority. The Living Bible

Write a prayer to the hand of Him who strengthens based on the memorized verse:

Thank you Jesus for spending time with me in prayer as I seek your face for direction and wisdom.

Write down what God's will is for you as the one who strengthens based on the memorized verse:

God wants me to reflect on his goodness and grace and spend time with him offering up thanks and adoration towards him for his mighty works and miracles.

Write down what God wants you to go and do based on His strength to reap the harvest:

God wants me to remind others that they should find time throughout each day to spend time communing with God so that they can receive strength daily.

In conclusion, it is a good practice to decide on a set time and set place to meet with God daily through time management. It would be no different than setting up time to go shop, work, etc.
