Our priorities usually get mapped out by what would be the most beneficial, or what would hurt the most if we missed. If you work from 9-5, then you will prioritize your day to make sure you are at your job site from 9-5. Priorities are important. The way we make and keep priorities is apart of our character. Remember this though; God's timing is not the same as our timing. God has a life long perspective and a pure motive. Laying out our priorities should come through prayer. Setting aside time each day to ask the Lord what he would have you do today, could radically change your priorities.
Prioritize prayer and prayer will prioritize your day.
The Bible has so many passages on prayer, because it is a core part of our relationship with God. We read our Bibles to learn God's will for our lives, and we pray to communicate our needs, rejoicings, and gratitude to God.
I John 5:14, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us."
When our hearts are searching for God's will, God will direct. If you think your day is yours to handle, then you don't understand the personal, and detailed God we serve.
I Chronicles 16:11 "Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always."
God desires our attention all day. Not when the going gets tough or unbearable, but each moment, starting from the beginning.
How do you set your priorities for the day? Who is in charge of your day? your world?
