Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you – Matthew 6:33
I have been reading through a devotional book for awhile now; A devotional book that I have quoted numerous times on this blog. I haven’t been happy while reading about grace for what seems like the millionth time. Nothing wrong with reading about grace. I need grace. You need grace. Grace is good. But I feel like I have been going through the motions during my morning quiet time. Bored with the daily:
- Read – Check
- Pray – Check
- Move onto the next thing – YUP!
I often feel like I am not doing enough. As if reading a single daily entry is lacking. Distracting thoughts…
Talked with a good friend this morning. Maybe more like I dumped a load of thoughts on him (thankful for you, Travis). At one point, in my jumble of texts, he offered: Have you asked God for direction with your quiet time?
“No”, I replied.
What a question. So obvious and yet something I haven’t done.
Gotta fix that.
As Matthew 6:33 says, seek the kingdom first, and everything else will fall into place.
What do you do for a personal time with God?
What has God been teaching you?
