TOPIC: Time and Priorities
"You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth" - Revelation 5:10.
Your destiny is to rule on the earth, not just in the next age, but also in this one. To be effective, kings focus on what is most important, and don't waste time on trivialities. In other words, kings must rule their time and that means they focus on what is most important, delegating everything else to others. Yet giving things to others to do can be a challenge, because you think no one can do them as well as you. You also may want to maintain control of your life, and the only way you know to do that is to do things yourself. How effectively do you delegate to others? Do you delegation as dangerous and painful, or necessary for you to rule your time and your sphere of influence?
Lord, I don't share duties with others very well, preferring to do things myself for many reasons, some of them legitimate, some of them selfish. Also, my need to control my world is fear-based and I need to release some of what I do so I can do other more important things. Help me to let go and let others!
