our time and devotion

 

Over the past couple weeks the Lord has taken me on a journey to search my heart. I have been challenged to be honest with myself about where I spend my time and affection. I have realized that devotion to something or someone is directly related to the amount of time spent with that something or someone. The word “worship” is defined as; showing profound respect, or adoration to, to dedicate and give devotion to, to give honor, homage, and reverance to that which is considered sacred. Worship is something that we all do.

We were all  created to become like what we worship. If we worship God we become like God. If we worship food we become fat. If we worship alcohol we become an alcoholic. If we worship work we become a workaholic. If we worship ourselves we become selffish. If we worship money we become greedy. We bow down to whatever consumes our time, energy and resources!

Who or what do you worship? Where do you spend your time and energy?

Take some time to survey your life and ask the Lord if there are things that are taking your time, energy, and affection…I don’t know about you, but after meditating of the idea that we become like what we worship it makes me long to spend time ALL MY TIME with the Lord. I want to become more like Him. I heard a quote today that summed up this concept perfectly; “We must become transparent vessels. A transparent vessel brings no glory to itself, but it glorifies what it contains” John Bevere

May you bring glory to God today. May you become more like Him as you spend time in His presence and worship Him alone!
