Topic: How To Handle Time Profitably – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Friday, 22 June 2018.
SCRIPTURE: Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Ephesian 5:16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where you spent most of your time will determine where you will get your most outstanding result in life.
Previously, we looked at the importance of time and time management in the realization of destiny. We noted that great achievers are effective time managers. Now, it is important to look at how to profitably maximize the time of your life.
The question is, how do we use our time in order to ensure the fulfilment of destiny?
- Time in Relationship with God
In order to use time effectively for the realization of destiny, there is a need to order your day; order your life with quality relationship with God, Prayer, communion and worship. Let your life literally revolve around this. Where you spent most of your time will determine where you will get your most outstanding results in life. Spend quality time with God, the Word of God, in prayer and in worship, and you will get quality results.
- Time in spiritual development
Spiritual development is the study of the word and the word base study. In spiritual development, you select areas of your life that you want to develop; it may be the area of wisdom, anointing or faith; then you study on these areas of life and develop yourself spiritually.
- Time in Personal and professional development
Personal development is all the things you do to make your life better career-wise or professionally. This involves the sharpening of your talent, investment into your potential, investment into your expertise, making yourself better on what you do. There are people who may not get a job because their market value is low due to lack of personal development.
Beloved, I would like you to thank God for the job you do currently; develop yourself and be the best at what you do.
Remember this: Where you spent most of your time will determine where you will get the most of your result in life.
- Spend time with God at the place of prayer.
- Spend time in personal spiritual development.
- Spend time in professional or career development.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to spend quality time with You. Help and empower me to spend time in personal spiritual and professional development, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
