My message for this month is time, yes, time. There is still 60 seconds in a minute and still 60 minutes in an hour. And the last time I checked there is still 24 hours in a day. But no time, no time, we hear it over and over again, no time. As I was seeking some answers for this problem, I believe the Holy Spirit revealed some wisdom on this matter. It works on the same principle as tithing. When you give God the first tenth of your income He will bless the 90 percent that’s left. Because it is blessed it will last longer, go further, and accomplish more. The same principle works with time. Proverbs 8:17  love them that love me. And those that seek me early shall find me. When you give God the first of your time, He will bless the rest. Your time will last longer, go further, and accomplish more. Who knows you may even have some left over to bless someone else. But not only that, but to be a good leader and an over comer you need to take time to rest. One notable president of the United States knew that. He absolutely refused to make any major decisions after 4:00 in the afternoon. He knew that a tired mind rarely makes  good decisions. One bad decision can create countless tragedies. Rest and recreation are not a sin. Rest time is repair time. It is not a loss of productivity. It is a time for renewing. It is receiving time. It helps release your potential. Jesus was an action man, a people person. He produced. He healed. He preached and taught. He walked among the people. But, he also knew the necessity of rest and relaxation. Mark 6;31 Come ye yourselves apart into a desert, and rest  a while. Think about this every day, Jesus faced hundreds of sick and afflicted who screamed for His attention. Many were demon possessed. Mothers reached for Him. Father asked him to pray for their children. Children did not want to leave His presence. But Jesus separated Himself to receive. He knew He only gave away that which He possessed. Work time is giving. Rest time is receiving. You must have both. God created the earth in six days. He took the time to rest on the seventh day. He set an example for us. Jesus did the same thing. Jesus understood the balance of rest and work, which might be the reason He was able to accomplish so much in three and one-half years. Life is demanding. People are demanding. In fact, the more you succeed the more people will demand you. Rebuilding yourself will require your attention. You need to take one day a week off and completely and totally relax. Focus on something completely different than your job. Your mind will think clearer. You will make better decisions. You will see life through different eyes. You will accomplish far more in less time. The fires of desire will always rage within you. You must dominate that rage and focus it. Learn to rest. Jesus did. Take time or time will take you.

If you have not received that gift of eternal life with Him, then pray this short prayer to the One who gave us victory over death through Jesus Christ.I know that I am a sinner and need your forgiveness.  I believe that Jesus died for my sins.  I now invite Jesus Christ to come into my heart and live as my personal Savior.  I will confess you before men, study your Word and live according to your will as you guide me.  Thank you for sending Jesus so that I might have eternal life. Your Word says in Romans 10:9-10 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the hearth man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto Him.
