Crafting the rhythm of life. It must be done intentionally. Because we are usually too busy to maintain our inner world or soul, which is the central point of a life in touch with God. (Gordon MacDonald “Ordering Your Private World”)
When you practice “Selah” or a “between time,” you are crafting the rhythm of your day. Practicing the Daily Office is centering myself in Jesus through whole day.
Since I practice the Daily Office, my life’s got new rhythm. God, work, work. God, work, work. God, work, work. It’s like you’re dancing waltz with God all through the day. It’s so good!
For LifeNet groups and personal reflection:
After being forcibly removed from his country and home, Daniel was given a prestigious education and high-level job in government. The pressure on him to conform to the worldly, pagan values of Babylon was great. The following example gives us insight into one of the secrets of his faithful devotion to God.
Scripture: Daniel 6:6-10
1. Reread verse 10 aloud. How do the words in this verse speak to you?
2. How do you think this practice anchored Daniel in God and enabled him to resist the great pressure he was facing?
3. What costs were involved for Daniel?
4. What are the greatest obstacles preventing you from stopping to be with God two or three times a day?
