Max Lucado writes, "A friend described to me her daily ninety-minute commute. 'Ninety minutes,' I commiserated. 'Don’t feel sorry for me,' she smiled, 'I use the trip to think about God.' She went on to describe how she fills the hour listening to entire books of the Bible. She recites prayers. By the time she reaches her place of employment, she’s ready for the day. She says, 'I turn my commute into my chapel.'”
Is there a block of time you can claim for God? I know I like to ride around Martin County with no radio on, just me and God talking. I remember the days I spent walking an empty golf course just enjoying my morning with Jesus. I love to walk the streets of Jamesville, waving and saying hello to people and allowing God to show me the world through His eyes.
How about you? Do you have time that you block off to spend with God? Maybe you need to turn off the news and open your Bible. Or maybe set the alarm fifteen minutes earlier and do your devotional reading. Rather than watch TV as you fall asleep, listen to an audio version of the Bible or a Christian book.
I love what John shares about what Jesus said, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 ESV).
Friends, take time for Jesus and His Word today, everyday, and allow His truth to set you free!
In His Hands,
