Ps. 84.7: (AMP) They go from strength to strength [increasing in victorious power]; each of them appears before God in Zion
The amount of fuel required for a journey depends on mileage to be covered . In fact, regular stop over’s for re-fueling are necessary sometimes.
Life is a not a 100 metre dash. It’s even more than a marathon race. Life is a journey!
An aircraft consumes more fuel than a bike. Therefore, it flies higher and scales more territories. It even travels faster and farther.
How far would you go in life?
The surest way to ‘while away’ one’s life is to exist without the presence of God.
Beginning with the end in mind, you’d definitely need to check in with the Author of Life for regular refueling if you’d go far in life. As a matter of fact, you need to appear before Him daily for the new strength and fresh grace every new moment requires: because the journey gets more demanding as one progresses!
The surest way to ‘while away’ one’s life is to exist without the presence of God! That is the best way to exhaust oneself on a journey and still never arrive till it’s all over!
Life doesn’t have to be that way!
It’s time to stop existing or merely surviving. It’s time to really start LIVING!
… to exist without the presence of God… is the best way to exhaust oneself on a journey and still never arrive till it’s all over!
Thank God it’s a new day! Another opportunity to start life afresh!
Please purpose to start spending quality time in God’s presence from today- worshipping, praying and learning at His feet.
Please grant me the grace required to carve out quality time with You amidst my daily hustles. And also grant as I do dear Lord that Your presence refreshes me like never before, and that I receive the new strength and vigour at all every instance to launch forward in my life’s journey, in Jesus’ name I ask it. Amen.
