Prioritizing life: sowing and reaping

 

Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 1 Corinthians 6:12

 

Know your why

I don’t pretend to have all the answers to prioritizing life. In fact everyday I remind myself of just how much I can’t do on my own. I KNOW that without asking God to organize my day, my thoughts, my no and my yes, I would be a mash up of miscommunication and displaced frustrations.

This month God has been walking me through Micah 6:8. Each translation breaks down the verse using varying calls to action but the commandment and instruction from the Lord remains the same. See He’s also been showing me how my life has been set apart for {such a time as this} His plan and although He might change the how, who and where; the why and what never change; because He is always the WHY and He is always the WHAT.

Micah 6:8 The Message (MSG)

But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.

Keep on sowing, keep on reaping

The greatest hindrance to prioritizing our lives is fear. Fear tells us it’s too late, it’s too soon, people will hate us, people will really really like us, it stirs us up and it shuts us down. The greatest defense to fear is truth. THE TRUTH. And the Truth of His word promises that whatever we sow, we reap.

 

 

When God gives you permission, don’t you dare measure it against what other people think

 

This message of sowing and reaping is beautifully broken down by thought provoker and business leader Jim Rohn. Take notes. This biblical wisdom can be applied to EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE.

What is God asking you to sow? What is He asking you to reap?
