Making Time for God in Your Busy Schedule

June 27, 2024

Luke 10:38-42 says, "Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Are you distracted, Like Martha? Too busy doing "good things" that you miss the Main Thing? Are you stressed out because of your schedule? 

Stress is a warning light.


Whenever I get under stress it means I've taken my eyes off the Lord.


It means I've started looking at something else. I'm looking at the circumstance instead of looking at the Lord.  


Some of us say, "I need more time." We don't need more time. We all have the same amount of time -- 168 hours a week. What we need is more time with God. And "more time with God" isn't going to happen unless you're intentional about it.

Are you making time to get to know God? I'm not saying taking time, I'm saying making time. You make time by saying no to some things that are keeping you from the Main Thing.


If we say, "I don't have time to sit down and pray everyday. I don't have time to sit down and read the Bible." Then we're too busy!

Many people relegate God to spare time, but find very little of it. We should not give God the leftovers.

Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).

What are “these things” that will be added? The necessities of life and God’s blessing. When God is placed first, He helps us prioritize.
