Psalm 119:11 "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee."
Psalm 37:31 "The law of his God is in his heart, none of his steps shall slide."
Psalm 40:8 "I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart."
Do you study the Word of God? We TRY to find time to fit in our Bible reading. What about study of the Word of God? Isn't it funny how we are always able to fit in time to eat breakfast or lunch or supper? We make time for vacation. We make time for this and we make time for that. But we do not find time for the Word of God. We schedule our lives to get other things done and then we TRY to fit God in somewhere. If we cannot find time in our day...then we just put God aside without a second thought. Shame on us!!!
In some cases...there are women who once spent quality time with the Lord but now have new babies and all of a sudden don't take time to spend with Him. They choose to play with their babies when they get the chance to get in the Bible. We need to stay in the Bible. Yes...our children need our attention...but we also NEED to take time with the Lord in prayer and Bible reading. Every child needs a Momma and Daddy who have a right relationship with God in their Bible reading and prayer. Children do not need a Momma and Daddy to carry them around and make spoiled heathens out of them. Make time for God!!
This is an area of my life that I would like to improve in. I do have times during the day that I spend doing things that are not of importance. Those are times I could take out for an opportunity to study my Bible. I have been guilty of letting my wifely and motherly responsibilities keep me from my study time and from getting alone with the Lord in prayer when I've felt prompted to. Shame on me!!! I know I'm not alone in this. I know there are others that are guilty of this same thing. May we all (with God's help) make an effort to improve in this area of our lives.
