Reshaping and prioritizing your life

Jesus knew the right things to do at the right time and he never wasted time doing things irrelevant to his ministry

The Bible

Bible verse for today: John 6:15 "Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself" (NIV).

Are you on a path to discovering yourself and need help? You should first take a look at the life of Jesus on earth.

Jesus knew the right things to do at the right time and he never wasted time doing things irrelevant to his ministry, every thing he did was already thought over and the outcome determined.

This means to fulfil God's plan for your life, you'll have to discover, after discovering next is prioritizing, know your strengths and weaknesses as these factors would help reshape your destiny, putting you back on track on that destined path.

The Word for Today devotional by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) says:

The secret to success lies in knowing what God has assigned and gifted you to do. Once you discover those two things, delegate the rest or let it go. This isn’t easy, because others will place demands on your time and energy that aren’t in line with your calling.  Work out what activities drain you, and unless they’re essential—avoid them. Then, work out the things that energise you and fill your tank, and make them an essential part of your life. ‘But there are so many demands on my time,’ you say. Nobody was busier than Jesus. John speaks about His workload: ‘…There are…things that Jesus did, which if they were written…the world itself could not contain the books that would be written…’ (John 21:25 NKJV).

Question: How did Jesus stay on track and keep from burning out? Answer: He knew the secret to spiritual rest and renewal. The Bible says, ‘When Jesus perceived…they were about to come and take Him by force to make Him king, He departed again to the mountain by Himself alone.’ The word ‘again’ tells us that Jesus made a regular daily practice of withdrawing from the crowd in order to pray, consider His plans and priorities, and recharge His batteries. Understand this: to be effective with others, you must learn to be comfortable alone with yourself. Novelist Louis Auchincloss said, ‘The only thing that keeps a man going is energy, and what is energy but liking life?’ If you can carve out moments to do what energises you, you’ll have reserves you can draw on when it’s time to give to others.
