Friday’s Friends (#3)

30 seconds a day. Okay, maybe 45. That’s all this simple yet powerful little email devotional takes to read. But it includes Scripture, it gives a simple challenge, and I read it in an Australian accent (and that makes it all the more cool.)

I first heard Christine Caine at a Passion Conference in Atlanta. Her zeal and actions behind A21 inspire thousands to fight modern day slavery and human trafficking. Her ministry has aided in rescuing thousands from slavery, not to mention the even more important message she shares in the true delivery through the Gospel of Christ.

The daily devotional is not a blog but more of a quick reminder to put First Things First, which is the name of her daily devotional email.

Here is today’s (8.14.2020) devo …

First Things First with Christine Caine

Don’t Forget to Reset

“Slow down. Take a deep breath. What’s the hurry? Why wear yourself out? Just what are you after anyway?” (Jeremiah 2:25, MSG).

I love to think of my times with God as a reset. Whenever I notice myself complaining, agitated, or just flat out being rude to others, I recognize that it’s probably because I’m not spending enough time with God. Because when I take the time to get away and be with Jesus, love quite literally pours out of me! It’s the way I was meant to live, and this is something that applies to each of us.

Today, make it a priority to spend some intentional time with God. Whether it’s a quiet moment in your closet or bathroom, while you’re on your way to work, early in the morning, late at night, or at a coffee shop — slow down, quiet your mind, and focus your heart on the presence of God. I believe you’re going to be amazed by what He will do in and through you!

So subscribe to her daily devo email here. Or you can check out her podcast as well. The only caveat, please don’t snitch if you see I’ve used some of her ideas on my blog … I’ll try to give credit but preachers often forget to tell where we get our material.

Have blessed day and take time to be with a Jesus. You won’t regret it.
