Make Each Moment Count
Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is. (Ephesians 5:16-17-Amplified)
There will never be another day like today. Today, we have 86,400 seconds to spend either for the glory of God and the advancement of the kingdom of God, or for the amusement and satisfaction of the flesh.
Let’s make every moment count today. Use your voice for prayer and encouragement; your hands for the aid and help of others; your mind to think on things that are true, honest just, pure, lovely, virtuous, and praiseworthy; your emotions to feel God’ s heart of compassion for those around you that are suffering the wages of sin; your ears to be a listening friend to one who is beset by challenges and problems; your eyes to behold the glory of God through His Word and in creation and to look away from unchaste and the impure.
Today, you are God’s voice, His hands of help, His look of compassion. He can only do His work in your sphere of influence through you. I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations. For as you yielded your bodily members [and faculties] as servants to impurity and ever increasing lawlessness, so now yield your bodily members [and faculties] once for all as servants to righteousness (right being and doing) [which leads] to sanctification (Romans 6:19- Amplified).
Allow your moments to used in the service of the King today. The Lord God has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear as the learned (Isaiah 50:4).
I’ll leave you with a John Wesley Quote:
Do all you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.
