You Don’t Have Much Time! Sometimes back, in not too much of a distant past, God gave us a boy. So tiny, so little, I could carry him with one of my palms. Fast forward to now, the guy is presently serving with NYSC.
Everything was fast! In a couple of years, I would easily and successfully become a grandpa! What? I am still trying to feel like a dad and now the grand dad thing is beckoning gently!
The scripture says:
Eph 5:15-16 (KJV)
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
The Message Translation puts it this way:
Eph 5:15-16 (MSG)
So watch your step. Use your head.  Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times!
Dear husband and wife, this is the time to work together. This is the time to make the most of every chance you have.
Don’t use half of your lifetime quarreling, settling quarrels, getting in and out of strife, living in perpetual suspicion, and never harnessing the power that lies in the prayer of agreement.
The scripture makes us understand that as husband and wife, your productivity is supposed to mount up in leaps and bounds.
You are supposed to get better in a divine synergy that will touch lives around you.
This requires you to make up your mind to avoid unnecessary quarrels, stay out of strife and forgive quickly.
Not talking to each other for weeks, picking quarrels at every instance, and trying to change your spouse are all energy wasters. You Don’t Have Much Time!
Take a look more at this:
Rom 13:11 (MSG)
But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God.
Never get so absorbed in other things at the expense of God
It is only with God that your time can be maximized.
It further says:
Rom 13:12 (MSG)
The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed.
The night is about to be over!
You don’t have much time, do you?
That dream that lies in the pages of your diary, gathering dust on the shelf, when will you give birth to it.? The pregnancy of aspirations you have carried for years when will deliver?
I think it is about time!
Finally look at this:
Rom 13:13 (MSG) We can’t afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight.
Work together as a husband and wife and let the glory that is embedded in the purpose for which you came together come into reality!
The price to pay is to decide to follow God, forgive easily, love each other unconditionally and pray more!
I pray sincerely for you this morning!
God will strengthen you to work together and fulfill your destiny!
The reason for which you came together as a family will become a reality in Jesus’ name! Remember, You Don’t Have Much Time!
