Daily Read – Leviticus 1:1-3:17; Mark 1:29-2:12; Psalm 35:17-28; Proverbs 9:13-18
 
Mark 1:35-36
 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight,
He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.
 
If you are reading this, it means you have set time aside to be with Me...Thank You! I love our times together.
 
When I walked the earth, I also took time to meet with My Father; it was an absolute necessity in My life. I could never have endured the natural world with all its demands had I not filled My Spirit with all of Him. Many times during the day and evening, I would slip away to be with Abba. I would wake up long before anyone else just to be alone with Him and spend quality time praying and communing.
 
During My life on earth, I only did what I saw Father do and said absolutely nothing unless I first heard Him say it. I walked in cadence to His very heartbeat. I knew His heart because I intimately knew Him. We spent our lives together talking and communing, laughing and rejoicing.
 
As you already know, the only way you really get to know someone is to spend time with them. Time is an earth-bound word that doesn’t exist in My Kingdom. The earth uses this finite word in an attempt to measure and box in an infinite and eternal world. Many times, this measure of time boxes Me right out of your life. Time runs your day and many times runs out before we can even spend one moment together.
 
To live an abundant life on earth, you must spend time in My presence every day. It brings health and strength to your body; wholeness and stability to your soul; and freedom in your spirit.   
 
If time is boxing you in and boxing me out, then it’s time to make time submit to you!  No longer allow time to run your life. Refuse to give in to its demands; instead, command time to make room for our relationship and times together. Take the authority I give you and command time to shut up and submit to My will in your life. You’ll be amazed at how quick time submits and bows to your demands. Look for time to literally multiply within your day giving you more time not only to be with Me, but your family. You’ll even discover you have extra time at the end of your day.
 
Follow My example and slip away to a quiet, solitude place and
let's spend time talking, communing and laughing together.
 
Dear Precious Jesus, I want nothing to stand between You and me. I grieve to think how I’ve allowed time to stand in the way of our relationship. As an act of my will, I refuse to allow time to dictate to me, but I tell time what to do in my life. I take the authority You give me and command time to submit to Your will in my life. I command time to make time for our relationship. I will no longer succumb to times demands, but demand time to submit to my commands!  I look so forward to spending more time with You Lord!
