Here are four tips to create more time for your devotions with God:
“Tip # 12 Get your calendar out and set an appointment with God every day for the next thirty days.
I have my time set one my calendar. I have the reminder come up which forces me to click yes (I did it), no (I did not), or I can defer it for one hour from now…
Tip # 13 Take a simple inventory of where you spend your time. How many hours do you:
work each day?
spend in exercise?
spend in leisure?
How many minutes do you spend with God?
Consider how much time you should spend with God this week. Next month, evaluate yourself again. Set a goal to spend ten percent more time with God then you did last month.
Tip # 14 Take a 3 x 5 card and add this to it:
Write this across the top. I spent ____ minutes with God today, and He taught me _______
Carry that card with you during the day. Refer to it at meals and at bedtime. If your family has a conversation at a meal, then use this card to speak about what God taught you today to reinforce it…
Tip # 15 Find a Bible study tool or short reading plan to try for one week…”
