DayBreaks for 10/29/15: With All Your Mind
In the days of the circuit riders a minister was out riding one afternoon and came upon a man out working in his field.
“Fine day isn’t it?” the minister called out.
“It is fine for you”, the man replied, “All you have to do is ride around on that horse thinking about God all day long, while I have to sweat here in this field and then walk home afterward. I don’t think it is right you should have things so easy while I have to work so hard.”
“On the contrary”, the minister answered, “thinking about God is one of the most difficult things you can do. And to prove it, I’ll give you this horse if you can think about God and nothing else for one minute.”
“You’re on,” said the man and immediately he sat down in silence. Thirty seconds later he looked up at the minister, and said, “Does that include the saddle?”
Today you’ll have 1440 minutes at your disposal…or 86,400 seconds. How many of those seconds will you be thinking about God? We are to meditate on Him and His word constantly. We are to love him with ALL our mind…how are you doing?
1 Chronicles 16:11 (MSG) – Study GOD and his strength, seek his presence day and night…
TODAY’S PRAYER: Give us a hunger to know You better! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
