Is.40:31 (CEV) But those who trust the LORD will find new strength. They will be strong like eagles soaring upward on wings; they will walk and run without getting tired.

Coping and catching up with the demands of everyday life and escalating standards of living can be a drain on the very quality life we’re aspiring to if care is not taken!

… the breath of God is the difference between living and merely existing…

It’s even worse when through it all, we can’t find time for God who, being the very essence of life, helps to hold it all together.

A life void of the breadth of God is a cycle of confusion and disillusionment, accompanied with bouts of weariness and frustration. At this stage, a man is always at his wits end.

You don’t have to go through this!

The presence of God … enables us to operate on a higher pedestal than mere men, outperform them and even outrun them in wearisome races of life without feeling an iota of stress!

Spending quality time with God is one of the vital few choices you should make daily as the breath of God is the difference between living and merely existing.

The presence of God refreshes and energizes our spirits, injects life into us and makes us see life from a higher horizon. This enables us to operate on a higher pedestal than mere men, outperform them and even outrun them in wearisome races of life without feeling an iota of stress!

Who stirred up one from the east
whom victory meets at every step?
He gives up nations before him,
so that he tramples kings underfoot;
he makes them like dust with his sword,
like driven stubble with his bow.
He pursues them and passes on safely,
by paths his feet have not trod.
Isa 41:2-3 (ESV)

Please ensure to spend quality time in God’s presence after work today: worshipping, praying and learning at His feet. Let His presence refresh you and ask Him to help you factor Him into your daily schedule going forward!

Prayer:

Lord, Your word says that we go from strength to strength when we appear before You everyday.

Help me to factor quality time with You into my daily schedule and please grant by Your grace that Your mercy, grace, strength, and every blessing and virtue of life I can ever wish for be renewed unto me as I appear before You daily in Jesus’ name. Amen.
