Making time God's way:'a Biblical principle of time management'



'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.'

(Genesis 1:1-5)

Today I am gonna share a message  on a Biblical principle of time management,destiny and the will of God in our lives. This is not a creationist message and therefore I will only focus on Genesis 1:3-5.

In the book of Genesis as narrated by Moses, the Spirit of God is hovering over the waters and then God decides to build the world as we know it today. In this early episode of the Bible, God's power is so infinitely displayed to the point where whatever He says equates to a tangible achievement.

And as He decides on 'making the world as we know it today', the first thing He does is to call out on the Light and to separate it from Darkness. At that moment ,Moses records in Genesis that it was the first day in time of 'our current world as we know it today'.

There are different things we can deduct from the first day of God's work on our current world. First of all, I do not think that God brought forth light in order to see what He was doing because God can see things in even through the darkness. there are many plausible reasons that could explain His decision to bring out light first. But this is the one reason that comes to my mind:

'After His spirit hovered over the waters, God decides to 'build the world as we know it today' but before doing so He wanted to make time for it. And as a result He brings forth Light, separate it from the Darkness, and He makes the first day and night. He made time.

Did you catch something?

Very often, we complain about not having the time to live our purpose, our God given destiny or to do the will of God. But the truth of the matter is not that we don't have time. We think that time will just come on our lap in a blink of an eye. It s not gonna happen that way.
In the same way that God started His work by making time first, we also have to make time first for the things that matter:Our purpose, our God given destiny, His Will.

When the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters, time was not available until God made it. Time was the first product of His work for the building of the world as we know it today''. Right after making time, God cruises on the rest of His work.

Every time He makes and creates something, there is a completion of a day (reference Genesis 1:6-26).

What does this tell us?
God wanted to measure his work or productivity against time. It's also called a schedule.

So in the beginning (as reported by Moses), God desires to build a new world but there was no time, so He makes the time for it and then He slots all his actions within a specific day.

When you don't have the time for what matters, you don't wait for it to come. You just make it!

Many of the dreams that God have deposited in us are dormant not because of money but because we don't even make time for them. Many Relationships are broken or non-existent because we don't make time for them.

You don't wait to have time for what matters. You make the time! 

That's part of time management.

*********
Here is my bonus point: ' If you never have time to do the will of God, it could also mean that you have filled your life with activities that you were never supposed to conduct at the first place.
This is why you have to learn to say NO and decline to give attention to anything that could take you away from God's purpose.

Don't wait for time to be available. Just make it in God'style.
