While Jesus was here on earth, he offered prayers and pleadings, with a loud cry and tears, to the one who could rescue him from death. And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God. Hebrews 5:7 (NLT)
What if you could stop time? What would you do? Would you live in the moment or just exist? Don’t just survive, live and be aware of the moments that are before you. Jesus was never in a hurry and always lived in the moment. Never actually stopping time, but always being present in time. You don’t have to miss opportunities to share the good news about Jesus or help that friend that is hurting.
Live in the love of Christ and allow Him to clothe you with His peace and His grace. Then, you will be able to identify what is needed in the moments of life. Don’t be hurried by the clock of this world, instead withdraw and spend time with the Lord. Your life is different when you talk to God in the silence of the day and when you call on Him in the busyness of the day. Jesus is waiting for all of us to live in the moment with Him. “Call on my name,” He says. Be present today in time, don’t just exist, but live in the love of Christ and share that love in the moments of life. Know God hears you.
Father, I know you hear me, and today I want to live in your love and every day as you extend it to me. Lord clothe me with your peace and your grace to be in the moment and be aware of your presence. AMEN.
