Presentation1NO TIME FOR GOD

Mom rolls out of bed, takes her meds, feeds the cat and dog and jumps in the shower.  Thoughts of the day race through her mind.  She awakes the kids and gets them rolling.  Rush, rush, rush! 

“Everyone grab a breakfast bar and run for the van!”

Kids are delivered to school.  Mom arrives at work and pours a cup of coffee.  Today, her online horoscopesays, “You will be asked to make a great decision today that will bring you much luck.”

Cell rings, “Did I leave my tablet in the van?”

“Yes”, and the Angry Birds game was still on!”

The work day starts.  Details.Phone calls.  Upset customers.  Happy customers.Details and more details.

The work day ends.  Pick up the kids.  Drive thrufor dinner.  Ball practice.  Listen to who said what about whom.  Drive home.  Watch some TV.  Take showers.  Get ready for bed.  Awwwwhhh!  Then it starts again.

BUT God asks, “What about time with Me?”

“I am here for you.  I am here to calm your fears and your mind.  I am here to guide your steps and to help you face the hard decisions.  I am here to bring you blessings and to prosper you.  I am not the god of luck and sorcery.  I AM the I AM.”

“I ask you to not allow your children to devote their time to meaningless games that glorify the anger of the world.  Ungodly prayers have been prayed to the enemy of their soul to cause the children to yearn to play those games.  It may seem like such a little thing but the intention is to draw the children away from parents and from friends and from Me.  Don’t invite the spirit of anger to dwell with you!”

“In the times of your ancestors, mothers and fathers worshipped idols of wood and stone and taught their children to do the same.  They turned their hearts away from Me.  There wasn’t time to pray or to go to My house to worship.  There wasn’t time to meditate on My words of comfort and encouragement and My words of correction and rebuke.”

“My heart broke for my people.  I wanted them to want Me.  I was there for them, but they wanted no part of Me.  They chose the gods of other nations, not Me.  Eventually, I brought justice and judgment.  I did move my hedge of protection and I did allow evil to come upon them.  A very few did stand in the gap who asked Me for mercy.  Time and time again, My people forsook Me.  I allowed other countries to come and bring calamity on My people.  I stood by wanting and waiting for My people to cry out to Me for help.  I wanted to help them!”

“Will you make time for Me?”

“Will you teach your children to make time for Me?”


2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
