It seems like every time I turn on one of my electronic devices it needs a software update of some type. Between my work computer, my home computer, my iPhone, and my iPad, it’s now to the point where it happens daily. Early this morning, I had this thought, “What if believers updated their relationship with God as frequently as they updated the software on their electronic devices?“
The more I walk with God, the more dependent I become upon spending time with him, and staying connected to him. If I don’t plug-in and “update” the software of my heart and mind, every single morning, my day feels incredibly sluggish and out-of-sync. Moreover, it also hinders my ability to relate to other people in a Godly way.
For instance: the other day I had a “tweak-out” moment on the phone with one of my friends. After it was over, and after I had to seek his forgiveness for snapping at him, I realized that I had made it more of a priority to get coffee that morning, than to read my Bible and pray. EPIC FAIL on my part!
My epic relational fail reminded me that I simply cannot skip out on my morning quiet-time with God. It must be more of a priority than my daily cup of Starbucks coffee. Plus, as I go throughout my day, I must remain in a state of connection with God, which means constantly “updating my software.”
How about you? When’s the last time you “synced-up” to God? If you’re not doing it daily, then I’ll bet your heart and mind are running a bit sluggish. Missing your time with God means missing an incredible opportunity to have the power of the Holy Spirit guiding your day.
Think About It.
