A Break with God

There was an old television commercial that told us, “You deserve a break today.” We have coffee breaks, lunch breaks, and afternoon breaks. During these breaks we fill ourselves with different kinds of food, coffee, and sodas.

How many of us make a priority of taking a break with God? Do we truly take the time each day to spend a much needed, crucial interlude with our Creator? If we could take just one of these breaks for food and drinks, that we think we couldn’t do without, and fill up on the word of God instead, I am convinced that our lives would be more focused and peaceful.

I would suggest that you consider the following. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Evaluate your daily schedule so that you might define the best possible time to take your daily break with the Lord.

Depending on the type of person you are, you might schedule your devotion time after everyone else is in bed, or on your lunch hour. Do whenever is best for you, but may I suggest that you try and be consistent with your time of day, so that it is easier to remain committed. Choose a quiet, peaceful, comfortable environment where you can bask in the presence of the Lord.

God desires a personal relationship with us. Meeting Him on a daily basis helps us fulfill our part of that bond, in which we grow in Him.

The most important break of the day is the one we spend with our Heavenly Father. Filling ourselves with His word, His love, and His guidance can help us become more like Jesus in our everyday lives.

The Bible tells us in John 15:5, “I am the vine and you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him he can bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing.” If we meet God daily in prayer and Bible study, the Bible instructs us that we can do many things, but apart from Him we can do nothing. May I encourage you to take a break today with the Creator of the universe, so that you can fill yourselves with Heavenly blessings only God can provide for you.
