"No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier" (2 Tim. 2:4).

You and I have been called to live the high life in Christ Jesus, not to be tied down to this natural realm. But all too often, instead, we allow ourselves to become tangled in the temporary affairs of this world. We allow those entanglements to drag us into defeat.

Don't let that happen to you. Simplify your life. If you don't have time for God, make time. Don't let your career, your family or anything else keep you from going on with God.

One thing I can promise you is that every part of your life will be more blessed if you take time to listen to God. Nothing you can do is better than hearing from heaven.

Before I consider taking on any new activity, I always ask myself, Can I afford this? Not can I afford it financially, but can I afford it spiritually? Can I give time to this activity and still keep my priority time with God? If not, I can't afford it.

There's only one thing you absolutely can't afford to do without—and that's your time spent in prayer and in the Word of God. It is your very life. It is where your victory lies. You may forget that, but Satan never does.

He'll constantly be sending time-stealers your way. So be alert and don't become entangled in them. Remember to ask yourself, "Can I afford this?" Then simplify your life. Make the time you spend with God your first priority every day.

Speak the Word: I do not entangle myself with the affairs of this life so that I may please the Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 2:4)
