TOPIC: THE TIME FACTOR IN PROSPERITY
Scripture; Psalm 90: 12. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! While God desires that we prosper on earth we must also understand that our prosperity is time bound.
This is why our anchor scripture is saying teach us to number our days! We do not have eternity to fulfill destiny. So today we shall be considering the implications of time on our prosperity.
What is time?
According to Merriam Webster dictionary, Time is the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues. It is an appointed, fixed, or customary moment or hour for something to happen, begin, or end.
The following are why time is so important?
1. Time is a teacher and a healer; Sometimes the
way to get a new, healthier perspective on a situation is to give it time. Within that time, a person is given the opportunities to think about what has happened and experience other things.
2. Skills are impacted by how much time you invest. Mastery in any field of profession requires quality time. There is no musical instruments that can be played skillfully if time has not been invested!
3. Relationships are made or broken by how much time you invest. Most unions that are firm and solid are a product of long time investments. To train your children will require quality time with them, inculcating norms and societal value system.
4. Everything is bound by time. Every single thing in the universe is affected by time. Whether it’s a tulip, human, or a star, all things gradually age and eventually decay as time progresses.
5.Time is the most precious resource because you can’t get it back when it is lost! You can’t store it, or retrieve it! Once it is lost, it is gone for ever.
6. It takes time to know God! This is why the devil has messed up many believers. They are born again but there’s no time to stay with God and learn His ways. We attempt to continue with our old ways of life even though we are born again and we suffer the shipreck of our faith.
The devil is very clever, anytime your work is going to increase your pay, it takes more of your time so that you can keep on serving him by spending more of your time on the work.
Work is good but it is never meant to be a substitute for the place of God in your life. God should be your priority for living!
It is quite unfortunate that many believers all their life time have been looking for money without having any single time for God.
How could you dash out in the morning without prayer, return tired and sleep without prayer, No time for personal Bible study, no time for church service or nearby fellowship even on Sunday, no time for God!
Beloved if that is how you run your life then the devil is cheating you full time. Out of no time, you could make out time to eat and bath, then God who is your number one is now kept as number last. What are you pursuing? Is it not what will soon be left behind? It is time to re-prioritize our lives.
Beloved, may I submit this hard truth; whoever controls your time controls your life! This is very important. So if the devil can lay hold on your time, he has gained control of your life indirectly.
He can now dictate when to go to church and when not to, he can determine the kind of Christian programs to attend and the one not to attend.
Beloved, you will agree with me that many of us are slaves of our time. True prosperity comes when you have control over your time!
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. Where you will spend eternity is a function of the choice you make today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I ask for prosperity that will not tie my time and my life down in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy your time has come to prosper.
– You are delivered from every thing stealing your life by stealing your time in the name of Jesus.

God bless you.
