Jesus consistently met with God the Father (see Luke 5:16). This led to intimacy, which led to power, which led to effective ministry.
Some might say, "Yeah, but He was Jesus. How does that help me?"
In a world of constant distractions and ever-increasing demands on our time, it is easy to neglect the most essential aspect of our lives: our relationship with God. As a husband and father, I understand the importance of consistency when it comes to spending daily time with God. I can't get by without it. Correction: I may be able to 'get by' but I can't thrive and live an abundant life (John 10:10) without the presence of God in my life.
Let's briefly explore why consistency matters and how it can transform our spiritual journey...
How are you and God doing?
How are you, AND your family, and God doing?
Simply put, having a pulse on spiritual matters means knowing where you and your family stand with God.
Have you heard from Him lately? Are you building a daily altar? Do your children know Him and walk with Him? (Or, if they are young, do they at least know the fundamentals of our faith?)
Questions to consider:
Below is a link to an Instabook that I wrote after reflecting on a phrase I wrote down while listening to a sermon at church...
PATH to PEACE
If I build 2020 on personal effort, goal-setting and hustle, I'm doomed from the start.
I need something reliable. Unmoved by the changing seasons of life or the latest secular trends. That something is someone, God our Father. He remains the same! The same in the way He loves, forgives, strengthens, and heals. The same in the way He corrects, disciplines, and speaks.
Politicians will change this year. Economic conditions will change. People around you will change, whether they realize it or not. Things at work will change. Your bank account will change. Your body will change. Your schedule will change. And the list goes on.
But, remember, God will remain the same! There's an anchor we can all rely on for this new year.
But You are the same, And Your years will have no end. The children of Your servants will continue, And their descendants will be established before You. - Psalms 102:27,28
