Presence Session Devotion: Enough Time

by | Jan 7, 2016 | DEVOTIONS

I have ideas—more than anyone can pursue in a lifetime. I bet your minds are swirling with them and notebooks are filled with them, too. The question is which ones do we follow? Inspiration is everywhere, and I get a little too inspired sometimes.

I want to do all the things, and be all the things. If I had the time, resources, and no little humans to care for, maybe I could. But would all my pursuits please the Father, because this life I live—it’s for Him? I don’t have enough time, money, or help to do everything, but I have enough time to do what God truly wants for me. And, so do you.

We always have enough time to do what God desires, unless we allow our days to fill and don’t make space.

We have been given creative and intelligent minds, and we have a free will. The beautiful privilege of free will is that God allows us to choose, and He often blesses our choices. He is a good, good Father.
But do you know when we find the truest joy, greatest fulfillment, and most abundant fruit in our life? It is when we bring God what we want, leave our heart’s desire at His feet, and pick up what He wants. Those are the best things.
It’s in that posture we sense the greatness of His love for us and for others. It’s through that surrender we see our greatest and deepest desires fulfilled without even really asking. He already delights in every detail of our life and cares about what we care about. We respond and demonstrate our love to Him when we care most about what He cares most about.
May we do so for You, Father.

Go Deeper: Matthew 6:33, Luke 12:31, Romans 12:1, Galatians 2:20.
