Do You Keep Your Appointments?
I think most of us grew up learning that when you make an appointment, you keep it! From childhood to adulthood you become accustomed to having appointments. You look at your schedule to determine when you would like to make an appointment then you place a call or request an appointment online. There are Doctor’s appointments, Dentist appointments, Hair and Nail appointments for ladies, Barber appointments for guys and many others. Whenever you make an appointment, your job is to be there and be there on time. Normally, you do not cancel these appointments because you value the person’s time and you need the service that they are providing. In some cases, you will be charged if you do not show up. This week, I want to encourage you to make regular appointments with God and show up!
An appointment is a fixed mutual agreement for a meeting. Did you know that God wants a daily appointment with you? Will you make time? Will you show up or cancel? Perhaps you already have regular appointments with God and you are faithful at showing up. If this is the case, keep up the good work! I want to remind us that I am talking about meeting with the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, The Almighty God who knows everything. He has things that He wants to reveal to you and show you. He wants to guide your life and every decision. Will you let Him? He says call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and mighty things, things which you do not know ( Jeremiah 33:3 ). Imagine what we are missing out on when we miss our appointment with God.
I encourage you to pick a daily time. Find a good spot and show up for your appointment with God everyday. Pray, get your Bible and have something to write with. I don’t know about you, but I can count on one hand the times that I have had to cancel any appointment in my life time, maybe you can too. Just like you wouldn’t be caught canceling your other appointments. Don’t cancel with God. He is looking forward to spending time with you. Oh yeah, and you don’t have to limit yourself to just one appointment a day, you can meet with Him as much as you like. All you have to do is show up and keep your appointment with God everyday! Train your kids to make appointments with God at an early age so that they can develop the habit early. Appointments with God are life changing!
Until next week. . .
