I was flying back from the first National One Day training in Sacramento, CA yesterday and the flight attendant got on the intercom to give the familiar message to all the passengers. She said, "At this time, please turn your phones to airplane mode so as to not create interference with flight communication."
I got to thinking about this as a practice in our daily walk. Do we make time in our daily time with God to put our life, daily planners, meeting agendas, to-do lists and busy life on airplane mode, so-to-speak? All those things create interference and daily flight with the Father's strength. Do you realize that if we gave just 15 minutes of our day to God in "airplane mode" (non-interference to our communication to our Father) that would be just 1% of our day?
Life can be so crazy and God wants to be a part of our whole day but having those times of uninterrupted, phone silenced, computer logged off time with our Father is so critical get us centered and flying in ministry the way He intended us to. Principle 7: Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible readings and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
A daily time of "airplane mode" time with the Father helps us know His will and gain power to follow His will. How is your "airplane mode" time these days?
What would happen if all our church leaders, ministry leaders and followers of Christ gave just 1% of our day to Him?
