When we operate in heavenly time, things seem to flow and get done. When we fixate on natural time, life just passes us by. If we get things done, it's completed in frustration. We must live in Gods timing. His word says in Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Psalms119, the "alphabet psalm" is a psalm considered to be a rule of life in God. Verse 133 says, “Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me.” These two scriptures relate to time management to me. Every step we take each day needs to be ordered by God. When they are not, sin comes to take the place of his spirit. Anxiety rushes in when you see how you lost track of a project, bills or appointments. You can become short with your family and filled with a vexed spirit. This can all be avoided when we keep our eyes on the Heavenly Prize. It is imperative that we live in Gods timing and not our own. In 2010 I lost my first kitchen that I worked very hard to open in a great location. This was mostly due to me leaving heavenly time and walking in natural time. I put in 72 hrs a week into a place that could not revive me, embrace me or take me to a position of rest. Now I lean not on my own understanding, but in all my ways I acknowledge God! Hallelujah! Set your clocks to the time of heaven! You will never lose focus or track of things. Trust that his grace will grab you once you start to look to the left or right.
Father God I cry out to heaven on behalf of families across the world this day. Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen!
2 Peter 3:8 (ESV) But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
