Do you spend enough time with God each day?

by Yvette van Niekerk

According to the Apostle Paul “let God transform you” or “be transformed.” The secret in Pauls prayer is to allow God’s Holy Spirit to renew our minds. The only way we can change is through meditation and focusing on God and spending precious time in the presence of our Lord and Savior.  Paul is saying that if I am willing to spend time with God and striving to behave like the Lord Jesus, the Holy Spirit will renew my mind, and my thinking will change. When I seek God, my outcome changes, I will be blessed.

How can I renew my mind, and what will happen?

Thinking about where I spend my time, am I honestly spending quality time in God’s Word? To be honest no, I believe I have fallen in this regard. I have been filling my days with non-important things.

The sad part is I listen to the Word of God and get distracted, and I am trying to stay focused, but I am not fully involved. What is wrong with me? I have decided that I should stop everything that takes away my time and focus on the Word firstly. Getaway from everything and turn back to God.

I do have too many ups and downs, and I fear I am becoming more involved in the World. I want to know the will of God for me but to find it out I have to renew my mind to hear His voice.

I realize through prayer and focus on God, and my spiritual gifts will come to light and grow in ways that are perfect and pleasing to God. He is transforming my mind and heart, and He has given me spiritual gifts.

Meditate on Romans 12 verse 1 to 2 MSG “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”


Father God, I confess that I have become so busy with all kinds of things, distracted and not spending enough time with You. Please, Father, forgive me, I want to draw closer to You, in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.

I say I am a Christian wife, an Author, Radio Presenter, a Blogger, a mother, and stepmother, a granny, and a Data Capture and Personal Assistant. I absolutely and unconditionally love the LORD my God, and my husband and children. I love to write devotionals about the Word of God – the Bible. I like to incorporate my feelings and understanding in my blogs. We all face challenges don't we, and for me, it is just as difficult as for the next person. I also get frustrated and irritated and cry, and after everything I have tried, I turn back to God. I seem to learn the hard way, just like a little child always wanting to try it myself before I ask Daddy for help. I would say that I am a people's kind of person, I feel their pain, and I love to laugh with them. I always aspire to see the very best in people, never judging and still considering what they might be facing as people there and then. On meeting people, I always place them in the highest bracket on my scale. I believe the very best of each person. I do hope you love reading my blogs and seeing what I am doing on my web page. In the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bless you.
