Good morning people who do not take days off from being with God

The devil does not take days off, and nor should we.

I’m not talking about not resting in God - sabbath rest is right and necessary. I am talking about not taking days off from being in God and with God; days devoid of time in prayer and in God’s Word.

King David committed adultery because he was not doing what he should have been doing. At a time when kings go off to war, he stayed at home. At a time when he should have been fighting, he was resting (2 Samuel 11)

When we don’t meditate on God’s Word day and night, and when we don’t pray without ceasing, we set ourselves up for trouble.

This is not about a legalistic prescription; it is about a posture, pursuit and priority of our heart and a decision of our will.

It is about not taking the easy and lazy way out. Our flesh gets weak - this happens to us all - but it’s in these times that we need to ‘watch and pray so that we do not enter into temptation’ (Mark 14:38)

The enemy is not passive, yet many Christians are passive.

The word passive means: ‘accepting or allowing what happens or what others do, without active response or resistance’.

Without striving, is there a spiritual action that you need to take today in order to continue walking in the victory that is found in Christ?
