Every morning we wake up and choose what we are going to do. Is spending time with God one of those choices? Often times we force God to vie for our attention and time. All of the blessings He gives us end up taking His place and pushing Him out of the picture. We stay on computers, tablets, and phones all night but we won't read the word. We get home from work and claim we are too tired to pray but we choose to unwind by watching television or going out to dinner with friends. Those things are perfectly okay to do unless they are moving God from His rightful place as "first choice".
During times like these we are susceptible to attacks and tricks of the enemy. Then in our chaotic mindset we expect to hear clearly from God. Eh, it doesn't usually work out as smoothly as we desire. We all want to be prepared for these attacks and believe me, we can be if we make the conscious decision to spend time with Him daily. Today and the rest of the week I challenge you to spend time with God by choice! Chase after Him for a change =)
Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.
