Spiritual Nutrition

If you’ve put off your quiet time with God lately, think of regular time in God’s Word like you do nutrition: It’s absolutely necessary to maintain a healthy life. It’s so easy to start your day planning to have a devotional time—a little later. Yet a little later never happens! Suddenly you’re off and running, because you failed to set aside the time for the most important relationship in your life

Can you relate? That’s why you have to have regular scheduled times with God whether you feel like it or not. You might feel like you don’t have the time to spare. And if you feel like that, you need it more than ever. Jesus says that as you draw near to Him, He will draw near to you (James 4:8). What a great promise! Do what you need to do to make it happen, to get the spiritual nutrition you need.

God, I know my time with You is essential to my spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness. Jesus, You are the bread of life. Help me live out the psalmist’s cry: “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek you; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You” (Psalm 63:1). Amen.

From Jim’s Heart–The Key to Focus

Have you ever felt like your life is scattered, as if you’re going in ten different directions at once? Do you ever wish your life was more focused?

If there’s one key lesson we can learn from the apostle Paul, it’s the value of discipline. All his energies were passionately channeled in one direction—toward winning a “crown that will last forever” (I Corinthians 9:25 NIV). Many people chase after earthly prizes and crowns that won’t last, but Paul pursued an eternal prize. He wanted to know Christ, the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings (Philippians 3:10). And he counted everything else but loss (3:3-7).

What’s motivating you? Is Christ truly first in your life? When He is, you’ll definitely be focused!

God, I want to be passionate, focused, and directed. Alert me today if I start going in several directions at once. Bring all my responsibilities together into a unified life of following You. Amen.
