READ : Psalm 37:4-11
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him. (v. 7 NIV)
Pastor Yusuf Losute is my best friend. My wife Grace and I always like being with him and his beloved wife Susan. We like sharing and discussing issues together. When we are away for many days without seeing them we try to call and know how they are fairing.
God should be my best friend and yours too. Taking time with God is one of the most rewarding experiences in a Christian’s life. The Bible vividly demonstrates the importance of reading God’s Word and taking time for prayer and meditation.
A growing Christian is one who takes time with God amidst many responsibilities and challenges in day-to-day life. Can you imagine how life would be if God were to say, “I will not take time with you”? Horrible thought, isn’t it? Why then do you sometimes waver and neglect God? You let other things capture your attention instead. How foolish. – Symon Kiuta
Lord, help me always to take time with you and with your people!
