When God created time, He intended for us to use it for our good and His worship. He didn’t intend for us to exclude Him from the issues that occupy our time.

However, the enemy has spanned out a deceptive way to keep us busy with ephemeral activities until there’s no more time for us. Society is trying to dull any sensitivity to the Creator and His worship. If you are not careful, you would think that you own your time exclusively and could spend every second of it to gratify your flesh and selfish ambition.

They don’t tell us this directly but their advise and prompts suggest it:

“Don’t create time for God; focus on improving yourself, building your personal brand, and making money.”


Don’t wait until there is no more time for you. Key into God’s purpose for creating time. Use time for your good but have quality time for God, your Creator.

“Remember your Creator while you are young. Your old age is coming when you will have many troubles. When that time comes, you won’t have much to enjoy … Your desires will be gone. Then you will go to your everlasting home. And people will go to your funeral.

“Remember God before your life is snapped like a silver chain. Remember God before your life is broken like a golden bowl. It will be as useless as a broken bucket at the spring. It will be no good, like a broken wheel at a water well. Your body will become part of the dust of the earth again. But your spirit will return to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1‭-‬7 ICB)
