The battle with busy

Many believe if they are not busy, if they are not keeping a frantic pace, they must not be successful or significant. In our world, busyness is considered a noble thing, a badge of honor. While being busy is unavoidable at times, we must recognize there is a pace that is not only unhealthy and unsustainable; it is unbiblical. The devil deceives many into believing they have no choice in the matter of busyness. He knows that if he can't get Apostolic saints out of position with God by being bad, he'll get them out of position with God by being busy. The outcome of being bad and being busy is often the same; it separates people from God. How can busyness separate us from God? Being overloaded, fatigued and behind in our schedule is when we are most likely to be unchristian in our attitude and behavior. It is also the recipe for a joyless and fruitless life.

It is a biblical fact that Christians have enough time to do everything God wants them to do. The Apostle Peter stated that God has “...given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.” (2 Peter 1:3) this includes time. God would be unjust if he did not give us the appropriate time to live a godly life.

We are believing God for increase in prophetic proportions. So where do we begin uncluttering and simplifying our lives so that we can give more of ourselves to God and the vision to double/multiply? Here is the answer: we must use the time we already have, differently. Most of us have stated that we need more time in a day. What would we do if we had 25 hours in a day or 8 days in a week? The answer is simple. Show me how you use the time you have, and I'll show you how you would use that extra time. Truth be told, we find time for what is important to us. If staying current with social media is a priority, we'll find time for it. If our employer requires us to work extra hours for a few months, we comply. We find time to do what is important to us. If we don't invest the time, it's simply not a priority.

We are not too busy to support the vision to double/multiply, but we must fight the unhealthy pace that leaves Apostolic people distracted and devoid of passion for souls. Let's prioritize for the kingdom and advance revival where we are. Ephesians 5:15-16 “see then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” (KJV) Rev Aaron Soto
