Unspeakable Joy Devotional

I Don’t Have Time! I seriously think I have said this way too many times! Do we not all have the same hours in the day? The end of last year I felt led to do a devotional and didn’t realize it would be on my blog or social media, but that’s how it ended up. I told God that I didn’t think that I could commit because “I don’t have time!” Ha! Well, I do have the time, if I make the time. And I have realized it has become the best part of my day. Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is well pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

What do you need more in your life? How about energy? How about time? How about money? How about talent? Whatever you need more of, take the little you’ve got and start using it to serve other people unselfishly. Then watch God multiply it. You say, “I don’t have time to serve other people. I don’t have time to minister. I already don’t have time to get all the things done I need to do. How about I add anything else? Why do you think you don’t have time? Because God never meant for you to spend all your time on yourself! Why would God give you more time if you’re just going to spend it on you?

If you don’t use it, you lose it. And the way you get more is by investing whatever you’ve got. Watch and see how God will give you everything you need-and more-for doing his will when you use your time, money, and talent for him!

Psalm 57:2 “I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.”

Today as you approach God, come to Him with a heart full of worship, expressing your awe of Him and His faithfulness toward you. He promises that He will never forsake you, but will be with you all day long. Joshua 1:5 “There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the day of thy life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”

Find some “down time” to be alone and just sit quietly. You may think you don’t have time, but if somebody was giving out thousand-dollar bills at the mall, you would find time to get there. Don’t use the time to try and figure out something; just be still and available to the Lord’s attention.
