Are you so busy working for God that you never spend any time with God?
It is easy to justify doing good works for God as a substitute for spending real, intimate, quality, personal time with God. Unfortunately, many people are often so caught up in other activities that we use them as an excuse for not spending time with God. Instead, they need to make a firm decision to put God first in our lives.
For example, King David, who certainly had many opportunities to fill his time with other activities, knew that spending time with God is an absolute necessity - a vital need. In Psalm 27:4; he said that God was the most important thing in his life… “One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
Indeed, Jesus declared that if we seek God, he will take care of the rest of the things in our lives so he encouraged us to “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33). In your life, put God first and he will take care of ‘all these things.’ Follow David’s example and “make God the ‘one thing’ you need.” That way, you won’t be so busy working for God that you never spend any time with God.
