Consistency is key. Balance is key. Prioritizing is key. With everything on you plate sometimes you may feel overwhelmed. So you start to write down your goals. Say you will spend time on them for this amount of time and try to knock them out. Only to find yourself distracted and your tasks incomplete once again. You say to yourself, I will get into my BIble right after I finish _____, but you are still up late finishing projects, scrolling social media, and half listening to that podcast.
When you realize the issue here, repent and flee. The problem here is you lack guidance from God. you lack spiritual renewal Often, the aforementioned takes priority over god-time. Thus, these tasks become harder, time seems to slip away even faster, and you find yourself crying out to God for a way out.
Thank God we are dead to sin and alive in Christ. That means you will not continue spiraling towards a path of self destruction. Instead, the power of the Holy Spirit, even ever so faint because of your lack of renewal, will drawn you back towards God. With the word of God you can know God's plans for your life. You can get confirmation on where God wants you to go. You can be comforted, corrected,couscled, and convicted all within the confines of the 66 books of the Bible.
