Pastor Jimmy said this morning "If you want God to use you tomorrow, then you have to spend time with Him today."
That is a powerful thought. After being challenged by that statement today, I picked up my copy of John C. Maxwell's book Today Matters. After thumbing through it and reading a couple of the quotes/stories I highlighted. I found this quote from John Wooden, former UCLA Basketball Coach.
On the subject of practice, Coach Wooden stated "What you do in practice is going to determine your level of success. I used to tell my players, You have to give 100 percent every day. Whatever you don't give, you can't make up for tomorrow. If you give only 75 percent today, you can't give 125 percent tomorrow to make up for it."
I'd like to change the word of that first line of the quote.
"What you do in PRAYER is going to determine your level of success."
God, help me to pray the way and the things you want me to pray.
