“Jesus said that the cares of this world and the lust of other things would choke His word. We can choke God’s word with a yawn; we can hinder the time that should be spent with God by remembering we have other things to do. ‘I haven’t time!’ Of course you have not time! Take time; strangle some other interests and make time to realise that the centre of power in your life is the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement. Paul limited his knowledge to that one thing– ‘I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.’ We have to learn to concentrate our affinities, to determine to be limited.”

Father in Heaven, help us to set aside time daily for prayer and reading the Bible, so that we may have a better relationship with You and shine more for the glory of Jesus.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
