Day 24 – You need to spend time with God
‘Through desire a man, having separated himself seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom’ Proverbs 18:1
Your success in life is not determined by how much labour you exert on your activities; but it is first determined by the amount of time you spend with God on a regular basis. You need to separate yourself from time to time, and seek the God of all wisdom. The scripture says ‘you will intermingle with all wisdom’. Notice that it takes personal desire; you have to purposely set that appointment with God and keep it.
This exercise goes beyond the short time you spend to have your required daily ‘quiet time’ of devotion. This is the time you think through and weigh all life questions with the principles of God’s word. It is the time set aside for prayerful meditative thinking with your regenerated mind! You ask God questions and you listen for His answers.
Daniel and his team were confronted with death because King Nebuchadnezzar had a frightening dream he could not remember (Daniel chapter 2). Daniel went in and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would show the king the interpretation (v16). The secret which astrologers, magicians and soothsayers could not access was revealed to Daniel. You will receive answers to all life threatening questions as you spend time with ‘the God in heaven that revealeth secrets’ (v28). You will obtain all the wisdom you need for a fruitful, meaningful and peaceful life, as you invest time with the God of all wisdom. Forever may the Lord bless you, in Jesus name, amen.
