Seize the moments. As quickly as they come they are gone. 

How much of our time is set apart for God? 

Do we give him Sunday? Do we give him the mornings? Maybe mornings and nights? 

The great hymn says, “I need the every hour.” Do we not? 

Here’s a thought, give Him your moments. A moment is all we have until the next moment God gives us. Yes He is the Giver of every moment even when we don’t give it back to Him. 

When we give our moments to Him we can expect a blessing!

There was an old song by Louis Armstrong that said, “We have all the time in the world.”

Great song, but actually we don’t have all the time in the world. Tomorrow is not promised. The next hour is not promised. We have right now. 

Psalm 90 instructs us to number our days. 

We can even keep a smaller account teach us to number our moments. 

We do not know the time we have so let’s not live in arrogant expectation of what we think we have or will be given.

If you don’t think moments are worth giving over to God, think about this scripture, 

“In a moment they die; at midnight the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away by no human hand.”

Job 34:20

Or how about this scripture, 

 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

I Corinthians 15:51-52

Let’s get detailed! Give God this very second. The more we give of every tiny moment, we will see the radiance of God’s glory and love shining through in even what seems most ordinary.

How much of your time is enough for Jesus? 

Heaven will be all praise, why not now? 

We were made for Him; to glorify Him.

His love never fails. His love endures forever. He watches over us every moment.

He cares for us every moment.

He died for us. 

Have we any excuse to give him any less than ALL our moments? 

This is my summary and reflections for chapter 2 of “Kept for the Master’s Use” by Frances Havergal
