Feel like You Never Have Enough Time to Put the Kingdom First in Your Time.

Why, Because the Honor God. So the Lord Was with When He Got up in the Morning. He Knew the Lord Was a Blessing to Get His Work Done in the Do It Well and God Will Bless You Look at the Young Man in Babylon Recorded in the Book of Daniel.

Would You Be More Fruitful in the Other Areas of Your Life. Another Bullet Point on the House and We Restored Some of the Time God Is Giving Us. Next I Want to Encourage You to Live Your Life on Top of Time. Now When I Say Live on Top of Time. I Have a Particular Paradigm in Mind Years Ago I Learned a Time Management Matrix That Really Impacted Me and Help Me to Put in Perspective How Jesus Lived His Life Still Had the Second Half of Today's Destined for Victory Message with Pastor Paul Sheppard.

I want you to imagine a piece of paper you can actually draw this as I'm describing it but a squire in your mind a square equal parts just roll across in the middle of the square for equal parts so that you have boxes now on the top are going to be this way in the top left. I want you to make sure if you're writing it right words in an urgent important and urgent. Top left important and urgent top right important but not urgent important but not urgent. Top left important and urgent top right important but not urgent. Bottom left not important what urgent not important what urgent bottom left bottom right not important not urgent years ago that our activities can all be placed in one of those quadrants. What I've discovered is if you really want to please God.

You gotta learn to live your life like Jesus lived is focusing on things that are important, much more than you focus on things that are unimportant.

What how do we find important in the kingdom of God. The kind of things I just outlined that we know God wants us to do what is important is doing the will of God, whether comes my spiritual development or my work inside or outside the home for my rest of my recreation for my ministry serving others balls are all important because the part of God's plan for my life and so what we have to learn to do is live our lives in the top quadrants, especially on my dad in the top right quadrant to spend a lot of time doing things that are important even when no not urgent. And the reason why is because of you focus on things that are important. You'll actually be preventing a lot of things from becoming urgent. Just the way Jesus lived his life. We see about age 12.

Say I must be about my father's business is already thinking about things that are significant ministry start guarding what is already focused on how to do the will of my father. You see Jesus living his life with a focus on what is important important. Now some of those important things were urgent.

Remember the time when Jesus was on his way to gyrus's house and along the way. That was an urgent stop. He had to make the woman within his who said this is Jesus.

He's my last hope and have got a sense to him of his garment and she came up from behind and grabbed his garment out of his body and he stopped. What important appointment, but something more urgent came up. This woman needed a miracle and he stopped and said, who touched me walking down a crowded street people you don't understand that some that have happened that was important that he stopped and he waited till that little bit of a woman revealed herself anemic 12 years of bleeding. She is financially busted. She is likely in bad shape.

She is in desperate need.

And now God has touched her, and he want to know who it was urgent and important knee and she revealed herself and Jesus and I just want to let you know that your faith has made you whole. Any Paul's because something was urgent and important.

Many went on doing that which was important life from the mindset of doing those things that are important and you and I have a lot of things in our lives that we need to focus on and what that means is you don't allow nonimportant things to important things that made time for the trivial things got messed up at the man let me get real with you when your phone rings is not always important that you get when you get to you.

Let me know focused on doing something during this time of the day doing something quadrant to important for me to get the job done.

I can't stop and shoot the breeze with you right now is not just season.

If not, I'll get you, but not now. A ringing phone has to be answered yet people get when the phone starts ringing nervous. Somebody wants to talk. Question is what are you doing now, is this your time where you have a space of time where you can handle a thing even if it is unimportant and if not, God made answering machines. Bless man to make a voicemail and you can check when it's time to check and see what's going on all you can set it where you can hear the person leaving the message.

Doing something raising and spending quality family time hanging out with your spouse building that relationship doing something that is important to some people that my kids and what you need to know that so let him leave the message and you check it out and you know not now and you stick with what's important. What's important while I'm on this point. Don't lie on your answering machine where people of God machine isn't exactly a good witness is a flat out lie. I'm not home please leave a message. Thank you. By way, there are times unless you plan answer the phone all the time I'm recommending that there be times when you not answer a lot finance a lot, but if you focus on something important you want to give that dedicated concentrated attention.

That's what that's machine is therefore so if you plan to screen your calls and don't have a message that says I'm not home because you may be home sites and goes in the voicemail hi I'm not here, please leave a message. Okay this is basketball I'm just returning medical home get all that to me on that machine you picked up what you're going to hear how you reach the shepherd residents please leave your name, phone number, the message. Thank you God bless you everything true shepherd, leave your name, phone number, the message. Thank you God will not be God knows where. Leave a message will get to it in the appropriate time. Sometimes you answer my lot but I'm saying we have to learn to maximize doing things that are important because God gave us the amount of time we need to get his will done what you're doing deserves uninterrupted time unless it's interrupted by something that is also important and urgent thing you have to learn things. Remember Ecclesiastes 31 there was a time for everything there is a season for every activity under and what God has given you the time to do and you'll see that they'll be plenty of time to get these other things. If we began offering 10% of our waking hours to God the things we may very well do you share the gospel more frequently with those who have yet to come to faith in Christ.
