Intentional Jesus Time

I find Jesus most in two times of my day: whenever I worship with music and in my morning bible and devotional time.

1 Chronicles 16:11 “Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.”

Being busy is part of life. You have tests and papers and assignments. You have meetings and chores and you need sleep. You have things to do and people to see and things that need to be planned and accomplished.

The issue with being busy is that so often, Jesus gets cut. Life “gets in the way.” In the midst of all the chaos going on around you, are you looking for His peace? Where’s your intentional Jesus time? What time have you put into your schedule and routine for His calling? I’m so guilty of cutting my Jesus time when I get too busy. Oh, I’ll go to bible study next week. Church can wait, I’ll watch the sermon online later. I just don’t have time for youth group this week.

Where do you find Him? Where does He feel near to you?

Isaiah 55:6 “Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”

Life may get in the way. Jesus may go on the back burner… but doesn’t everything seem brighter when you know you’re living out God’s purpose for your life? Doesn’t it seem easier to feel energized when you’re getting a good dose of Christ in your day? Your faith suffers when you don’t look for Him in the middle of everything going on. You have to knock for Jesus to answer. He is seeking you out every single day but you have to be open to His blessings.

I challenge you to find a time when Jesus takes the only priority. Listen to worship music during commute. Take a devotional with your morning cup of coffee. Find when the Lord speaks to you and make a habit to intentionally spend time with Him. Every single day, make a commitment to spend time drawing closer to Him and listening to the will He has for your life.

Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find it. Knock and the door will be opened to you.”
