Don’t Waste Your Life … The Hour is Urgent!

by Chauncey Hutter, Jr - November 17th, 2009. Filed under: Marketplace.

The Business of Prayer is a ministry to those in the marketplace looking to encounter God through prayer & fasting as they live their everyday life. When some hear “marketplace” they think of a business person or a CEO of a company. Well, the marketplace is actually EVERYONE. Wherever you go during the week and whatever you do each day is your marketplace. God is with you and waiting for you to ask Him to come and pour out His presence where your two feet take you. The Kingdom will come on earth as it is in heaven and the people around you will be blessed as a result!

But the hour is urgent. There is no time to waste! Turn to God and PRAY …

When there is no vision, people perish. If you don’t have a big picture plan or purpose for how you spend your time, how can you decide on what ways you should live? What’s your life calling? Why has God made you the way you are? With your particular life’s
experiences, what’s the God assignment on your life?

Did you ever notice we tend to waste our lives spending our time, money and energies on things that don’t really matter? We must have clarity about who we are in the purposes of God so we can connect with His plan for our life while we are here on this earth. You see, every person has an assignment … a reason you were born in this particular generation. So an important question for all of us is, “How does God want me to spend my life resources now while I’m alive?”

We all have life resources: TIME, AFFECTIONS, MONEY &
TALENTS. Some of us have more than others, but the point is not how much each of us has. The real issue is what are you doing with
your time, your affections, your money and the talents you do have? God has a vision for your life and how He wants you to spend your time, money, energy and what you give your heart to. If you want to begin living a REAL life in God, you’ll want to be purposeful and put together a plan that truly satisfies and brings fullness of joy in every area of your life.

But the hour is urgent. There is no time to waste! Turn to God and PRAY …

Money is power — however … time is life! Squandering time is the same thing as squandering your life. But take this one step
further. To squander your time is WORSE … When you do so, you are squandering your destiny! And if most of the hours of your life are being spent on the wrong things, those wasted hours add up to not fulfilling your destiny in God!

So if you do have a life passion and life purpose in God – but you do not manage your time well, you will not enter into your true destiny and the eternal plan God has for your life!

This is a stewardship issue. To be purposeful and follow the call God has on our lives, we must develop skills and character to manage our time well. We must live our life with an aggressive
approach to time management (or self governance) in order to honor God and be a good steward. The truth is everyone has a life passion and a destiny here on this earth. Most people talk with passion about their destiny, but speak very loosely about their schedule and how they spend their time. If we are going to be an effective witness to the world, we must “connect the dots” of our life’s passion with our real life’s schedule. So that means MY TIME COMMITMENTS MUST HAVE THE SAME KIND OF ENERGY IN MY LIFE AS MY GOD GIVEN PASSIONS!

But the hour is urgent. There is no time to waste! Turn to God and PRAY …

Live as a present tense shining light TODAY by spending your time (life) wisely. Holiness …. Takes Time. Love …. Takes Time. Anointed Prayer Life …. Takes Time.

Doing “good things” will always be the enemy of doing the BEST thing. So say “No” to the tyranny of the urgent. And say “Yes” to your destiny in God of what’s really important! Remember: What is significant to God is not popular or important to most
people. Your friends, family and co-workers will be mad at your living out of this kind of purposeful, prayerful lifestyle. With passion and purpose, block off your prayer time and guard your scheduled Bible reading time. And if you don’t … someone else will fill your schedule for you.

Don’t let your life waste away like this … the hour is urgent.

To pray with others, contact your local church and ask when prayer meetings are scheduled throughout the week. If you’d like to pray for our city and God moving through your particular marketplace sector, go to www.businessofprayer.com for meeting times and
additional information. To receive prayer, send your confidential prayer requests to
Pray4Me@businessofprayer.com. May God bless you and give you Hope in this season of your life!
