Ephesians 5:16 (NKJV): redeeming the time, because the days are evil.


Ask any Bible-thumping Christian to describe the days we’re living in, and they’ll likely tell you “The Last Days.”

Through technology, mobile devices, and a 24-hour news cycle, we are aware today of more murders and scandals in one week than people in the 1960s knew in a lifetime. We travel more miles and talk to more people, thanks to cell phones, email, and Facebook. We live more life in a year than those before us lived in an entire lifetime. We’re just busy.

No wonder you’re worn out! If you’re not careful, the busyness of your life will keep you oblivious to the special days the Lord has given you, and you could miss incredible opportunities. If you want to redeem or “cash in” on the day you are living in, the Bible gives instruction in the Scripture.  15See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  (Eph 5:15-16) We walk with wisdom and awareness of the times.

In every generation, lifetime, and point in history, there are windows of opportunity where the timing is perfect for your life to be changed, for you to make a maximum impact on the world around you, and for God to get maximum glory.

God is moving powerfully all around us, yet most people don’t even know it. They are busily focused on themselves. These are the days of miracles. Have you seen one? Do you need one? Our God is still in the miracle business, so don’t be afraid to ask your Father in Heaven when your back is against the wall.

Declaration: Today, I will slow down and be aware of what’s going on around me. I will look for the miracles in the madness!
