Unhurried Time

But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer. -Luke  5:16

Yesterday, I went to a mentor lunch with a bunch of youth pastors from around the city. We’re all going through Fathers of the Faith curriculum together. It’s a bunch of pastors who have been in ministry for years and seen great success. They were talking about the importance of spending time with God and in God’s Word everyday.

“Everyday you need to have an unhurried time with God!”

One  pastor said this, “Everyday you need to have an unhurried time with God. I meet with CEO’s that tell me they’re too busy to wake up early and spend time with God, and I tell them, you don’t have any idea who you’re meeting when you do that, you’re meeting the creator of the Universe!” They end up making time for God, and it revolutionizes their lives.

For me, it’s  easy to make time for God. It’s difficult for me  to make it unhurried time. I need to remind myself who I’m meeting with when I’m spending time with God. Could there be a more important meeting all day? I know if John Maxwell wanted to spend a few hours with me, trust me, I would make it unhurried time! I’m determining to make my time with God unhurried!

One of my mentors, Jeanne Mayo, says, “I’ve never met anyone who fell morally who didn’t stop having time with God on a daily basis first.” That’s a fact.

So, my question to you is: Do you spend time with God daily? If so, is it rushed? If so, change that! Slow down. Enjoy God.

Remember who you’re meeting with. There isn’t anything more important. It will change your life.

Why not go spend some unhurried time with him right now?
