You must know what to do with the time or periods in-between experiences in your life. When as a Christian you feel lonely or have an alone season in your life, that is the time you use to develop intimacy with Jesus in your life, not the time to go and group with friends that will not be relevant in your future. These waiting periods are times when God wants you to dig deep into the depths of your calling and develop a love for God building what you will need for your destiny later on in life. Love Jesus more than your spouse.
NOBODY CAN REPLACE JESUS IN YOUR LIFE, BUT JESUS CAN REPLACE ANYBODY IN YOUR LIFE. So, build that relationship in your life, thank Him for what is present in your life and grow in Him. What are you doing during your time of singleness? Use this season of your life well and don’t waste it. You can use the times of unemployment, for instance, to develop a strong spirit before the job comes, instead of losing your salvation while trekking up and down. Are you digging wells in your heart or going to borrow water from another’s? Wells that are clean are dug during the dry seasons of life.
You will become like what you are beholding every day; is that God, man or Satan? God wants you to set the right thing in front of you each day. I will behold the right things always. When you set always before you God and His glory, it is the glory of God that people relating with you will connect with.
During worship one Sunday service, I observed the three people that led worship; a banker, a consultant and a computer specialist and these questions came to mind: did banker’s wife marry a banker and the Christ in him, or a banker and the beast in him? Did the consultant’s wife marry just a consultant or also a great grandfather in him? The answer to that will be as a result of what they have been beholding through the years.
Prayer: Lord, help me to focus on the right things in this season of my life. Create in me a fresh hunger for the things of the spirit in Jesus’ name. Amen.
