I’m sure you have noticed that we have missed a few days in our devotions. We have spent time with God each day, but with an increasingly busy schedule we haven’t stopped long enough to write a devotion. This 40 Day Challenge is as much for us as it is for anyone else. If we miss even one day, that doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel that it’s just too hard or too little time to spend with God. Time with Him is the one thing that we should fight for, and sacrifice whatever we need to in order to get that time.
“Fellow children of Abraham and you God-fearing Gentiles, it is to us that this message of salvation has been sent.”
“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.”
A promise has been given to us. A sacrifice has been made for us. So what are we willing to do in response? Do we need someone else to prompt us every time we seek God, or are we willing to take responsibility for our own choices? Time is used in the way we choose. Regardless of busy schedules (believe me, I get it!) there must still be a choice made about the time we spend with God. Every good deed under the sun is completely worthless if it’s not God led.
