The NOW moment

Once when I was at a Christian camp, I was listening to my favorite speaker. When he was done, he wanted to pray for us. I knew that would take a lot of time and I had prepared the activity following the sermon. There wouldn't be time for both. I had put a lot of time into that activity. I was asked it it was O.K. to skip my lesson and go with the preacher. Oh, course, God was already speaking. Why go elsewhere?
Another instance: in my quiet time God was speaking to me in various ways, moving me around in the Word. I had several devotional type things to catch up on. The Lord spoke to my spirit, "what you are doing now is the most important thing. Don't worry about the rest." When God is in something, that is the important NOW moment. Get all you can out of it. Don't hurry on to the next thing.


  1. Great post! In our busy society and our busy lives, it's so easy to skip forward and not be sensitive to God's NOW moments!

  2. wonderful words of wisdom. Words we don't always follow for sure but should. Thank you for sharing this today for me!

  3. Great reminder that I needed to always follow what God has for me NOW. Don't worry about everything else, He will work it all out.

    Thanks for this wonderful Word from Him.
