(WWJD?) What Would Jesus Do (GGD) Give God Time
📌Rising early to meet the Lord gives you a jump on the day. Meeting Go at night enables you to reflect on the day. Either option is good.😊
If there's one thing we need in the midst of our busy, loud, and nervous lives, it's the inner peace and quiet and assurance that only God can give. It's the only way to see God's purposes for us, let alone keep our sanity.
The things is, God doesn't yell out and say, "Hey, you're neglecting me. Sit still for a moment so you can hear me." Oh, He is fully capable of getting our attention when he really needed it, but you don't want to make a habit of giving God a reason to chase you down (and He will).
Rather than waiting for God to whack you over the head with a spiritual two-by-four, wouldn't it be far better to give God some time each day to quietly speak to you? Actually, this is God's preference. "Be silent, and know that I am God!" He says (Psalm 46:10 NLT). Being still may be the hardest thing you will ever do, but it may be the most important. Look at this way. When you give God time, you show Him respect. In effect you're saying, "God, You're important enough to me to set aside some time each day. I want You to teach me, and I want to learn.
Will God talk to you if you let Him? Most definitely. Not in an audible voice, but through your thoughts and emotions. God also talks through His Word, the Bible. Remember, the Bible is God's voice for us. The only way to hear it is to read it.
The doorway to letting God into the details of your life-into your concerns and dreams-is time. We know this won't be easy. Many others voices will call out for your time and attention, and many of them are worthwhile. But if you want to hear the one Voice who will make all the difference in your life, you'll need to let God in...quietly
Ask God to give you the desire to set aside a place and a time just for Him. The details of your life will wait. More than that, they'll take on more meaning you give them over to God.❤
If you hurry through life without giving God time, this world will seem like a hospital, a place to get sick and die.
WWJD? What do those four letters mean to you? You see them on wristbands and T-shrits, and you wonder, is that just another gimmick to seek wristbands and T-shirts? Or is there something to it.😉
WWJD? stands for "What Would Jesus Do?" And it just may be the most powerful question you will ever answer. It's a simple question, really, but the implications are profound-and potentially life-changing.
On the most basic level, WWJD? can be a guide for making decisions with moral implications. Obviously, you don't need to ask yourself, "What Would Jesus Do?" if you can't decide what to wear in the morning. But let's say you're faced with the choice between telling a lie or being truthful. When you compare your initial answer to how you think Jesus would respond, you'll either know you're doing the right thing, or you'll have guide for change. Jesus is the perfect example because Jesus lived a perfect life. He experienced all of the pressures, temptations, and anxieties that we have, but He never did wrong.
This brings to us a deeper level of ? question. Even though Jesus is a perfect moral example for us, it isn't enough. Because none of us is perfect. None of us can do what Jesus did all the time, in every detail of our lives. We need help. More than that, we need forgiveness when we sing, which is failing to live up to God's standard of perfection. But who will help us?
In a word, Jesus. You see, even though Jesus did many things to show us how to live, He did something we could never do. He sacrificed His own life for our sins so that when we accept Jesus by faith, we satisfy God, who then gives us eternal life.
Doing what Jesus did in all situations will make you a better person here on earth. Accepting what Jesus did on the cross will secure your eternal life. Why not do both? The decision is yours.😘
The essence of Christianity is new life in Christ. The essence of Christ is victory over death.
