Have You Planned Your Day?

 

(Ephesians 5:15-17) “So, then, be careful how you live. Do not be unwise but wise, making the best use of your time because the times are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

(Proverbs 24:27) “First do your outside work, preparing your land for yourself. After that, build your house.”

(Matthew 25:23) “His master told him, ‘Well done, good and trustworthy servant! Since you have been trustworthy with a small amount, I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and share your master’s joy!’”

 

 

If you want to make the most of your day, you have to start with a plan. Imagine if everyone just woke up and did things only based on their feelings. Most of us would stay in bed a couple of hours longer, or not get up at all. There would be no schedules to follow or deadlines to be met in school, work, government, transport, holidays…etc. In our homes, we would eat when hungry, sleep when tired, clean when we felt like it, and purchase from the grocery stores what caught our eye.

Seems crazy right? Well many of us actually live this way if we don’t plan our days down to the hour, keep financial records down to the penny, or have a budget planned out for the next few months. If you don’t make plans now for a brighter future, then you actually don’t believe that God can change things around for you.
Only when God sees that you care about the resources He has given you by keeping a good record and making plans for the future, will He be able to trust you with more and more. There is a big difference between being free in the Spirit or carefree and being careless.

Once you bring some kind of order and plan to your life, your time will be multiplied because God will speed up results for you. So will your finances through God’s favor and promotions because you have used your money wisely and been faithful with your tithes. Your talents will be noticed and valued because you have first used them to further God’s kingdom. Don’t forget that God is a God of order and obedience that leads to success.

Start small by planning your day, then your week, then your month, and then the next 10 yrs. Once you have done that, submit it to the Holy Spirit and let Him make the necessary changes. Keep a journal to write down what has been accomplished, spent, and with what purpose. This will allow you to ask for God’s help in areas of your life that lack self-control and discipline.

I guarantee that in a few months as you look back, you will see an increase in blessings from God and you will understand the value of being a good steward of all God has given you.

 

 

If you don’t know where your time, money, and strength is going, don’t be surprised when all a sudden you are old, weak, and broke. Make the changes needed today!
