Topic: Thoughts On Time – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Wednesday, 20 June 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should. Psalm 90:12 (TLB)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where you spent most of your time determines where you will get most of your results in life.
It has been confirmed that one major secret of great people is effective use of time. On the other hand, poor and mediocre people have no regard for time. Our God is the God of times and seasons; He does everything according to time.
Now, let me give you some key thoughts on time:
1. Where you spend most of your time determines where you will get most of your results in life
The person, who spends most of his time at alcoholic joint, for instance, would get red eyes, confusion, stagnation, calamities, poverty, family crises as his results. When a person spends time on the unprofitable, he gets zero result in life.
- Anyone who encroaches on your time is encroaching on your life
Do not respect anyone enough to allow them take or waste your time; anyone taking your time is taking your life and future unprofitably. That is the pathway to wasteful living.
- When time is passing and it is not engaged in profitable activity, it is life that is wasting.
Anyone who does not value seconds will not value minutes; and if you do not value minutes, you will not value hours. Similarly, if you do not value hours, you will not value the day, and if you do not value the day, you will not value the week. If you do not value the week, you will not value the month, and valueless months will result in a useless year; a combination of valueless years will culminate in a wasted lifetime.
- Until time is well spent, life is not well lived.
The proof that you are living well is spending your time well.
Beloved, decide not to waste your time. Let every second of your life be invested into profitable living.
Remember this: Where you spent most of your time determines where you will get most of your results in life.
- Do not allow time to pass without engaging in profitable activity.
- Do not allow anyone to encroach on your time to waste it.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You give me the grace to engage every passing time of my life with profitable and productive activity. Help me never to allow time wasters in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
