But wait, why is that some people don’t like prayer…. hummmmh but they can spend hours surfing the net, watching videos, listening to music, reading novels but to pray…ehhhh, Oooo is too long, hummmmh… May God deliver our generations in Jesus Name…
No joke, my own children also say it sometimes… mummy, your prayer is too long… but watching videos can never be too long…. O my God! Show us Your mercy, baptize us afresh with Your fire… input in us The Spirit of intercession… in Jesus Name.
Yes, not all prayers should be long… accepted, also longer prayers does not guarantee answers… often true, but do you know that if you want to see God in action in your life… learn to spend quality time with God… hummmh… no one does that and remain the same… Ask Moses….
Another angle to it points to our topic today “The Real Reason Most of Us Fail To Spend Consistent Time With God…” why is that the case?
Come along with us more:
The Real Reason Most Of Us Fail To Spend Consistent Time With God
It’s not lack of discipline. But lack of appetite. If we don’t have a hunger for God it is because our affections have been drawn away to other loves. To name a few:
- Rabid materialism — The rush and the seduction of acquiring and indulging. (1 Timothy 6:10)
- Sexual fantasies and indulgence. (Genesis 6:1, 2, 5, 6; 2 Samuel 11:1-4; Job 31:7, 9; 2 Peter 2:14)
- “Success” — That frenetic dash to achieve; “win”; make a name for oneself. (Ecclesiastes 2:4-11)
- Seeking the approval of others. (Matthew 22:16; Luke 16:15; Acts 5:29; Galatians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:4)
Recently a young professional shared with me the dryness of his times alone with God. He said that the Scriptures seemed flat. Irrelevant. He then explained that in his job, he and a team of analysts routinely submit reports to their superiors that affect company policy. It is a common practice, he informed me, to shade the reports in a manner that will put the team members in a favorable light with their higher-ups. If he chooses not to go along, his career is put in jeopardy. So play along he does.
Is there any doubt as to why he has little appetite for the things of God?
Last night I dined with a businessman who, for the past 3 years I’ve unsuccessfully attempted to motivate to spend consistent time with God. We’ve had “quiet times” together, talked about priorities, personal discipline, how to meditate on the Word. You name it. All to no avail.
“John,” I asked, “how‘s your time with God?” Embarrassment, fumbling. Then, “Dwight, I won‘t lie to you. It‘s not very good.” Yet this man spends 10 hours a day in his career, and untold hours in church work. But he will not carve out personal time with God.
Let’s be honest. We find time to do what we really want! So the issue is not discipline, but appetite.
“If we cannot recognize the value of simply being alone with God, as the beloved, without doing anything, we gouge the heart out of Christianity.“
QUESTION: How would you evaluate your appetite for spending time with Christ? Are you eager? Or is it obligatory? If your times with God are the blahs, what do you think is the root cause?
Whatever the cause may be… beloveth is not tenable before God…we must go before the Throne of mercy and ask God to show us mercy… when you walk alone is by strength but when you walk with God is called GRACE…
Pray that the GRACE to pray should be granted unto you… Yes! Let the anointing to sit at Jesus feet be deposited in you… Every distraction from the pit of hell be scatter by fire… May you learn to seat still and hear God speak to your mind… because God may not scream to get your attention … then you must sit still to hear from Him…
Pray that God’s Presence will go with you all the day… that you manifest His Presence daily in Jesus Name…
Jesus the Son of God wake up early to pray….(Mk.1:35) hummmmmh and you, what are you waiting for?… If you must work for 8hrs to 10hrs per day… will it be too much to pray for 1hr… or more daily…
The psalmist said my soul followeth hard after you…. (Ps.63:8) Receive the Spirit of intercession in Jesus Name Amen!!!
Further Reading- Prov.11:4, 1Cor.6:20, Heb.3:14, Ps.50:3, Lk.9:28, Lk.6:12, Ps.63:8, 1Tim.6:6, Heb.4:14, 1Thess.4:7, Joel.1:19, Jas.5:8
May God help us to pray!!! In Jesus Name!!!
Let us pray…. beloveth… and will hear us as we pray… Amen!!!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
