Oh Lord, I pray that people will start making time for You. May they not only desire to go to church, but also be a light for You, Jesus, outside of it. You have the power to lead any person in the ways of righteousness, but people need to desire to be used by You first. So it is my prayer that You come into these people's lives, that say they believe in You, and cast out anything that is drawing them away from You. And if those things are needed still, help them make better use of their possessions, that they may please You and not the flesh. It is true that TV can be a blessing, but often times it is more of a distraction than anything else. I've seen this, Lord, each time I've turned on a TV Show, movie or video game. What I've learned is that I've lost a ton of time, and then find struggle to read Your Words in the Bible and pray. Not to mention that it is hard to find the desire to seek You afterwards. Lord, Satan has a way to make things seem so good on the outside, but truly it is only leading us further from You. These things and other things like pornography almost destroyed my life, until I finally broke down and called upon Your Name. Lord, I was broken, but knew that only You could help me. I was never happy long term, but more sorrowful because of my sins afterwards. For this reason, calling upon Your Name in prayer was the best thing I could ever do. I had no way to make a change in my life, but You knew a way the entire time. Thank You for making this a reality. I love You now more than anything. It isn't hard to find time for You now, for You mean the most in my life. I love You Lord. You are my delight and the rock upon which I stand. Amen.
Matthew 6:22-24 (KJV)
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Spend your time seeking God and doing His will every day of the week. Jesus should be the most important part of our lives.
You know what’s interesting? These people that don’t make time for God are also very wicked. Not only do they have idols in their lives, because of the things I’ve mentioned, but they willfully sin as well. Continue Reading
