Spend Time With God

images (3)God desires your company, He wants to spend time with you. When you answer the call to spend time with God, you will not regret it. You will find yourself humbled at the level of anointing that He places on you as you wait in solemn worship and thanksgiving for His Presence. Overall, you will find that there are blessings and benefits that come with spending time with your Maker.

As you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and the fact that you are made righteous because of what He did on the cross, the Lord is already with you. He is, actually, closer than you think. Although at times, you may not feel Him, don’t worry He has said,

“… I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”(Hebrews 13:5b,KJV) 

God will not abandon you like so many people may have done in your life. He is there for you. Furthermore, He truly wants to be a “…friend that sticks closer than a brother…”(Proverbs 18:24). But this is not automatic. God desires your company but He will not violate your will. You must desire Him, as well, and wait on Him on daily basis in order have His Presence known to you.

In fact, the more you spend time with God soaking in His Presence, the more you will want to spend time in His Presence. There is such a sense of fulfillment and peace that “…passeth all understanding…”(Philippians 4:7). It will become something that you look forward to each day. Sure, there will be days where you feel unworthy and hypocritical as you sit before Him, but your failings have not taken Him by surprise. If you continue to come before Him each day with faith believing that He loves you unconditionally regardless of what you have done, then He will help you with your shortcomings.

What Blessings Will I Gain?

Besides His very Presence, peace, and anointing that you may feel burning in your heart is, you will receive:

  • Confidence that you can come to Him with any problem and He will not turn you away.
  • You receive clarity in your daily decisions as you take them before Him.
  • Then, you will find answers to prayers come as you spend time with God.

How Much Time?

You should, in all actuality, take as much time as it takes to allow Him to move on your being. The reality in modern life, however, is that many people are too busy with jobs, family, school, or other obligations to spend hours with God on any given day. None-the-less, the very time you spend with God is the most valuable time of the day.

Can you spare 30 minutes, 15 minutes, or 5 minutes to be with God?

With God it is not so much the quantity of time but the quality of  the attention and focus you use with God. Maybe, you will need some good anointed music and definitely have the Bible close by in your quiet time with God. Moreover, you can also have quiet silent time with God all throughout the day even as you are with other people. No one around you may know it but silently you might be telling God how much He means to you, or how much you love Him, or just a petition for help in an area. You can do this in a matter of seconds throughout the day.

But make it a habit to come before Him each day. He really does desire your company.  A-men

Tim Phillips received Jesus into his heart the day before Easter at age 4 (during his 5th year of life) in 1975. He immediately began preaching in his home as play church. In 1984 he became serious as the Lord revealed to him during a sermon, ...not to just tell people what they are doing wrong, but to tell them ( through the Word) how to do right before God. This revelation caused him to develop the heart of a teacher. He became serious about his "garage church" trying to reach all neighbors within hearing distance. Week after week he taught encourage those who listened to serve God. Later, that year God spoke to him in several dreams confirming his call to preach. In 1986 Tim Phillips began preaching at the church that his family attended. Then, in 1988 he was licensed to preach officially. He has preached and studied the word of God for over 26 years. He has done one-on-one counseling and spiritual guidance during this same period. Recently, he was prompted to launch this site to teach and encourage people to consider their eternal future. Eternality is at hand, some of us are only a breath away. Jesus stands with His arms outstretched ready save you from a future in Hell.
