Time And Boundaries
Be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but
as wise, making the most of your time
Are you afraid of saying no to people because of what they may
think? If so, find freedom in this today: Jesus often set boundaries
with others, denying their demands. And because He did, you can
and should too.
Why? Because when your life lacks firm boundaries, you
become an easy target for the enemy. He fills your life with so many
seemingly "good" activities that you're too busy to seek the Lord's
will. Eventually you find yourself tired, unfulfilled, and lacking the
peace and joy the Father promised you.
This is why it's so essential for you to set wise boundaries and
refuse to be drawn off course. Because if you fail to prudently manage
the time God has given you, you may become disheartened and
weary-missing all He's planned for you.
So today, ask the Lord to reveal His path for you. He will teach
you how to walk with wisdom and make the most of the opportunities
He has for you.
Father, bless me with wise boundaries. Show
me Your will so I can always obey You and
say yes to Your opportunities, amen.
