“But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.” (James 1:25)
God promises to bless your life if you meet with him every day. We like to call this a “quiet time.” I don’t care if it’s five minutes, ten minutes, thirty minutes, whatever. And it doesn’t matter what time of day you do it, just as long as it’s a time when you are at your best.
You need to set a date with God every day where you say, “God, I’m checking in with you. Anything you want to do in my life today, anything you want to tell me.” Just sit there and be quiet. Read the Bible a little bit, talk about whatever is worrying you, unload your burdens, and listen for God’s direction.
The Bible says, “The man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it – he will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:25 NIV)
God says if you will do this, he will bless the things in your life. “You have stored up great blessings for those who honor you. You do so much for those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world” (Psalm 31:19 NLT).
