SCHEDULE YOUR TIME WISELY ;
(Invest Your Time In Spiritual Things)
TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 5:15-16 NIV
“Be very careful, then, how you live–not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.”
Time is an asset, which you must learn to invest wisely. Investing your time wisely means investing your time in spiritual things (Psalm 90:12). Each day you live is an opportunity to accomplish so much, but the question is: How well do you schedule your day? When you wake up in the morning, don’t just roll off your bed and stumble blindly into the day. Spend quality time first to fellowship with the Holy Spirit in prayer and in the Word. Ask Him to guide you as you schedule your activities for the day and prioritise your daily activities. Ask Him to help you save time, and you’d discover how much you’re able to accomplish for the Kingdom on a daily basis. Then, you’ll become more productive, effective and progressive.
You’re granted only twenty-four hours in one day; so you’ve got to prioritise. If you were wishing to have more time to study God’s Word, the truth is, you may never get it. What you need is to create the time to study the Word, and schedule your prayer times as well, because your whole future depends on it. Proverbs 1:32-33 says, “For the turning away of the simple will slay them….” The “simple” are those who ignore truth; they ignore revelation and never take spiritual things seriously. They know it’s important to pray, but they’re too busy to do so.
God calls them the simple, and He says their complacent attitude shall make them victims in life. Don’t be like the simple, who would rather do other things than spend time on spiritual matters. Choose always to be spiritually alert so that when the “evil day” comes, it’ll meet you well prepared and you’ll know what to do.
Dear Father, I thank you for the guidance of your Spirit in my life, and the wisdom that you impart to me each day. I’m continually yielded to the Lordship of your Word. Thus, my steps are ordered in victory, success, and excellence, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
