Daily Devotional – 9/11/17 “Check yourself Monday!”

We, often times, find ourselves questioning God. “God, where are you?” “God, are you listening?” “God, when will it be my time?” But have you ever stopped to really hear God’s response? Have you ever stopped to answer the questions God has of you? Which, if you haven’t noticed are the same as the ones you ask Him. He’s asking, “Where are you?” Especially when the harvest is ripe yet no laborers willing to pick. He’s asking, “Child, when will it be my time?” Especially when you’ve been spending time with everybody but Him. God is even asking, “Are you listening?” Especially when it’s your spiritual ears that are clogged with all things natural. So, let’s call today what it is, Check Yourself Monday. Because if I shall tell the truth, a lot of us need to be checked. And instead of acting as if God has left you, think back and see if you are the one who actually left Him. Check you boo. What are you really doing? Are you praying like you say you are? Are you as holy as you portray to be? Are you as faithful as your social media looks? I get it, some days, the weight seems heavier than you remember. Sometimes it hurts to smile. Sometimes it is a struggle to get out of bed. Sometimes you can’t put the pills, drugs and alcohol down as easily as you thought. Sometimes, you will find yourself answering a call you said you would not. Sometimes, you will find yourself standing outside of a place you said you weren’t going anymore. And sometimes you don’t know what else to do. Well, today I challenge you to check yourself. Check who you are hanging with. Check what you are listening too. Check where you are going. Check what you are doing? And check the limits you have placed on God. Yes, God is listening but are you?
