“So Joshua answered them, ‘If you are a great people, then go up to the forest country and clear a place for yourself there in the land of the Perizzites and the giants, since the mountains of Ephraim are too confined for you.’”
The reason that many people are not living in victory is that their lives are cluttered. Many believe they don’t have enough time for prayer or Bible study. The reality is, if you don’t have enough time for prayer and Bible study, you’re doing something you ought not do. I don’t know what it is, but I will guarantee you that if you don’t have time to read your Bible and pray, you’re doing something God never assigned you to do. There’s something cluttering your life.
Whatever is cluttering your life may not be overtly harmful, sinful, or wicked, but if it is cluttering your life, you need to get rid of it. There’s enough time to do everything God wants us to do. But this often requires removing the clutter from our lives. Some people are so busy doing good they don’t have time to be godly. We must remember that we never waste time that is spent at Jesus’ feet.
Plan for specific time on your daily schedule to spend with God. Consider what needs to be removed from your life in order to prioritize this time.
