Psalm 39:6 (NASB) “Surely every man walks about as a phantom; Surely they make an uproar for nothing; He amasses riches and does not know who will gather them… ”
As I sat down to read my Bible and prepare a devotion, I was in a hurry. I try to get them done by a certain time; but I was a little late. So, I grabbed my Bible and trying to rush through it, I realized that I was missing the message of each verse I read. Then I realized how impatient I was. That it became more about sending them out than reading the Word for me. I was losing the message of the message. It became more about getting it out than getting it IN. What became more important, my words or God’s Word? I humbly repented and sought first His Kingdom and the message He was trying to tell me. I am more aware of how much of my time is spent trying to get my goals accomplished instead of His goals and make the necessary changes. I pray that you too will seek His truth and His Spirit for without it, we are lost in a world of us.
