TIME MANAGEMENT – KEYS TO SUCCESSFUL LIFE!
If time is life then every human is a time manager, because life is a personal time experience. Life is meant to fulfill the purpose of God’s creation, which is to fellowship in righteousness with God in the Garden of Eden. Now the purpose of man’s time on earth is to escape second death (spiritual death) and achieve general life fulfillment on earth.
Every man has God-given unique abilities, gifts and/or talents, because we were created in God’s image and likeness. Genesis 1:26. As a result, he is a god that controls his time and manages his life; he decides and bears his responsibilities. This can’t be done without knowledge, the help of divine wisdom or revelations from the ‘Spiritual Laws of Time’ (the Bible); indeed it encompasses all range of human reasoning.
Proverbs 9:10-11; “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. 11 For by me your days will be multiplied, and years of life will be added to you.” (NKJV)
James 1:5 says, “5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. (NKJV)
Time management – key to successful life. Every man who wants a fulfilled life, will desire wisdom to manage time, wisdom is the principle thing to manage time as man pursues the primary and secondary purposes of life on earth.
King Solomon concluded this matter, Ecclesiastes 12:13 saying; “fear God and keep his commandment for this is the whole duty of man”. Also when Jesus was speaking to the multitude on the mountain he said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added onto you.” (NKJV).
So folks you can see that it is seeking time for God first that brings wisdom to manage time to fulfill life. Time managers activate your “Now Faith” by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior. By this you will connect to God for divine wisdom and revelation to manage time effectively and succeed in playing the “soul game” on earth and decide heaven abode.
