How does God fit into our schedule?
: Joshua 3:1-11 READING
KEY BIBLE VERSE: (Josh 3:9 NIV) Joshua said to the Israelites, "Come here and listen to the words of the LORD your God.
In our schedule, giving attention to God ought to be our priority and center. Just before crossing over into the promised land, Joshua gathered the people to hear the words of the Lord. Their excitement was high. No doubt they wanted to rush on, but Joshua made them stop and listen. We live in a fast-paced age where everyone rushes just to keep up. It is easy to get caught up in our daily tasks and become too busy for what God says is most importantlistening to his words. Before making your schedule, take time to focus on what God wants from all your activities. Knowing what God has said before you rush into your day may help you avoid foolish mistakes.
: Psalm 31:1-24 READING
KEY BIBLE VERSE: My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me. (Psalm 31:15, niv)
In our schedule, we should remember that every moment is a gift from God. In saying, My times are in your hands, David was expressing his belief that all of lifes circumstances are under Gods control. Knowing that God loves and cares for us enables us to keep steady in our faith regardless of our circumstances. It keeps us from sinning foolishly by taking matters into our own hands or resenting Gods timetable.
: John 11:1-16 READING
KEY BIBLE VERSE: (John 11:5 NIV) Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus (John 11:6 NIV) Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.
In our schedule, we must recognize that Gods plans take precedence. Jesus loved this family and often stayed with them. He knew their pain, but did not respond immediately. His delay had a specific purpose. Gods timing, especially his delays, may make us think he is not answering, or at least not the way we want him to. (Phil NIV) And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
Patiently await his timing.
