How Do You Use the 24 Hours God Has Given You in a Day?

July 29, 2018

MESSAGE SUMMARY: In the twenty-four hours given to us by God in a day, we should allot time to spend with God as well as time to spend with family, friends, school, and work. First, as we plan our day, we have assurance in Isaiah 41:10: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.". Additionally, we should allot time to serve others as well as time for exercise and rest. Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11-13 summarizes God’s precious gift of time to us: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven . . . He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also, that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God's gift to man.". God has given us these twenty-four hours; but if we don’t have enough clock in a day to get it all done, then we are doing some things we should not be doing. If we are in the will and purpose of God for our lives, then He will help us get done those things that He desires.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, JesusI AM FORGIVENIf we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9).
