Redeeming The Time

Download Today's Audio ☞

Ephesians 5:16 (KJV)  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

Rose had been a believer for 4 years. Even though she attended Church services regularly, she still suffered terrible nightmares regularly. Anytime she had a nightmare, she’d run to her pastor for prayers, then she’d get a break for some days or weeks. After noticing that her deliverance was always short-lived, she eventually got tired of the rituals of fasting, vigils and Bible studies and started considering going back to her past life.

Like Rose, many are under the oppression of demons and evil men. Haven tried all that they know to do, some are now beginning to get discouraged in their walk of faith, especially when the freedom they desire is not forthcoming.

We are not left in the dark concerning these matters; God told us that the days are evil. Matthew 6:34 (KJV) reads:  ’‘take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof’’. The Lord, however, did not stop at this, He also tells us how to handle the evils. In today’s text, we see that we are to redeem the time because the days are evil. Note that we are to handle life daily and not weekly, monthly or yearly. Redeeming the time must be done daily.

One reason some Christians have not enjoyed consistent victory is because they have not engaged this truth of redeeming the time daily, but have waited for the next challenge to come and throw them into panic mode of prayer and fasting.

Men ought always to pray and not to faint (Luke18:1 KJV). One of the things handled in the place of prayer is the evil of the day.

Go into today making up your mind to give no place to the devil (Ephesians 4:27). Create systems that ensure that you redeem the time daily by spending quality time with the Lord in prayer and the ministry of the word.

Pray this way: thank you, Heavenly Father, for this truth. I ask for the grace to daily redeem the time, in Jesus' name. Amen.
