Ecclesiastes 3:1 1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: (NIV)

We need to ask God to tell us how to set our priorities.  What He wants most for us to do.  Moses had to learn this in Exodus 18.  Overreaching makes us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually tired.  When we say yes to every request, regardless of how needed they might be, we become unable to do well what God is calling us to do.  So often we say yes because we want to look good or we don’t want to hurt feelings.  It is so important to know where and how God wants us to use His time.  I say His time because time is not ours.  We aren’t here on this earth for ourselves.  We are here for God.  We are here to be His eyes, hands, feet and mouth.  God doesn’t need us but He wants us and wants to give us the joy of His working and speaking through us.  We must take time to hear Him on our priorities.  God should be our first priority.  Intimate time with God is our first priority.  When we do this God’s priorities for us will line up.  The little word, “no” is not a bad word.  It’s a protective word – protective for the priorities God has for us.
