Be Still . . .

A Waste of Life

By Greg Laurie

 

 

LISTEN  

 

 

"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"

—Psalm 46:10

 

 

I wonder when we stand before God if He will ask us about what we did with our time. People waste so much time every day. And they waste a lot of it on their cell phones.

 

Kids spend eight to twelve hours each day on a cell phone, teenagers spend about nine hours a day, and adults spend around four-and-a half hours per day. It’s a big waste of life in many ways. I think we need to make a conscious effort to put down our devices and spend time with each other, talking to each other and listening to each other.

 

Most importantly, we need to spend time with the Lord.

 

Interestingly, when someone asked Billy Graham if he had any regrets in life, he said yes. He wished he had spent more time praying, more time studying the Bible, and less time traveling and taking speaking engagements. He also said that he wished he had spent more time telling the Lord how much he loved Him.

 

The Bible says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10 NKJV).

 

One day we will be held accountable for what we did with our time and perhaps even for the opportunities we missed.

 

When we stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ, He will want to know what we did with our opportunities. Did we leverage them? Did we use the influence God gave us and reach out to people we know with the gospel? How did we use our resources? How did we spend our money?

 

These things all will be reviewed at the Judgment Seat of Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:10). But this judgment won’t be about success as we like to define success. Rather, it will be about our faithfulness to the Lord.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
