Computer Games!         

Not Again!        

         

Normally when I fast I almost always eliminated playing computer games because I simply enjoy it. At one point, it was a major time waster for me. At one time, I played computer games because of the fear I had of succeeding and failing, but I am no longer afraid

 

Now some may feel that I should have stopped playing the games while fasting, I beg to differ. In order fchronos and kairos or me to overcome this habit I had to confront it head on and uncover the reason behind it. With anything in life, if you don't first acknowledge the thing and seek its root cause, then you cannot overcome it.

 

For a while I acknowledged that I played computer games too much. Yet, I found myself playing them while I constantly complained about it. As with any addiction, you have to understand the reason why you do it. Yes, computer games can become an addiction. You see, I had become so accustomed to playing them that I did it without much consideration to whether or not I enjoyed it.

 

God has not told us not to do these things, but do not allow them to have control over you. When you do not have control over habits but they have control over you, then you have relinquished your control to the addiction. Ultimately it will consume you. This applies to anything--including working too much.

 

There is a reason God provided a blueprint for work and rest. He is not saying that we can't, but there is a time and season for everything under the sun. We have been given a 24-hour blank canvas entitled, "a day." Within this 24-hour period there are clusters of seasons. What you do with your season of time makes all the difference on your success.  

 

God gave us chronos time in order for us to prepare for the kairos moments. Chronos time is chronological time in which we can quantify. It is linear time. However, kairos time is when our destiny collides with purposeful moments. However, if you have not taken advantage of the chronological preparation season inherent in chronos time, you will more often than not miss your kairos moments of opportunity. In essence, if you do not manage the time allotted, you will pass over opportunities repeatedly because you have not adequately prepared yourself.

 

During that 21-day fast I could have opted not to play computer games. However, in order for me to truly control why they had control over me, I had to play them with purpose. In doing so, I uncovered the root of the situation and was able to conquer its control over me. I still play them, but I control the amount of time I do it.

 

You see time is God's precious gift to mankind. It is the one thing that we cannot get back. At this very moment seconds are ticking away. These are precious seconds that have disappeared into the abyss. What you choose to do with these seconds is critical to your daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, and lifetime success.  

 

One week from now will you be closer to your goal. That is what time management is all about. The Psalmists says that we should number our days so we can apply our hearts to wisdom. In essence, we need to understand that this life is fleeting. We are born and then we die. The in between time is all we get to fulfill our destiny and achieve our purpose. We don't want to squander our time. It is too precious. Stop playing games!

SCRIPTURES

  

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalms 90:12 (KJV)

 

Everything has its own time, and there is a specific time for every activity under heaven: Eccl 3:1 (GW)

 

What do working people gain from their hard labor? I have seen mortals weighed down with a burden that God has placed on them. It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people's minds. Yet, mortals still can't grasp what God is doing from the beginning to the end {of time}. Eccl 3:9-11 (GW)

 

All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1 Cor 6:12 (KJV)

 

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37 (KJV)

 

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2 (KJV)

 

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Gal 6:7-9 (KJV)

 PRAY


Father

 

I find myself doing things that have taken control over me. Although I don't want to do them, they appear to have more control over me than I have over them. As a result, they repeatedly cause me to miss You and the opportunities You have for me. I no longer want to miss You and all You have for me. From this day forward, I will confront those things that seek to steal my time, my productivity, my creativity and my destiny. Not to mention, that they cause me to be POOR (passing over opportunities repeatedly). I am more than a conqueror through You who loves me and I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. I will number my days to apply my heart to wisdom as I maximize the gift of time that you have bestowed upon me. When chronos time collides with Your kairos moments, I will be well able to walk through the open doors of opportunity in becoming all You envisioned. 

 

 

Amen
