Daily Devotional – 9/22/15 “Stop rushing!”

I, sometimes, find myself rushing to do my devotional. This morning is no different as I hurry to get ready for a 9AM training class. (So I won’t be long in this one!) But I had to stop and wonder if that ever rubs God the wrong way. I mean the audacity of me to be rushing to do His will. Yea, true enough I am still doing the devotional but I’m rushing to do it. Does anybody else think like me or is it just my wild thoughts? Does it get to God that we rush to do that which He has sanctioned us to do or is He alright with it simply because we are doing it? This is now piquing my curiosity. Now, don’t get me wrong; I am not saying there won’t ever be a time where we won’t have to rush but what I am saying is, we shouldn’t rush through everything because there may come a time you miss something in the middle. See, just because you’ve made a habit out of rushing and getting it right, slow down one time and just make sure.

I’m talking to me too. I don’t like to rush, especially when I am doing my devotional because it feels like I am missing something. We should feel the same way when it comes to whatever we are doing for God. Stop rushing through whatever it is He has you going through. It’s for a purpose. Get out of it what He has for you!
