THE POWER OF DAILY ROUTINE
It was a bit tough getting the consent of my wife’s siblings- they could not imagine that their youngest sister would return from serving the nation to mention that she wanted to settle in Eruwa and marry a pastor there.
One of the questions that I had to answer one of the days that I was given access and privilege was, “Temi, please describe your day to us”. It was a test to know whether I was lazy or I knew what I was doing. The answer got me some headway.
There is hidden victory in your daily schedule. You can never do more than your daily routine on the day of crisis! When challenges beckon, it will expose what you have been doing daily.
For instance, the early church had a daily routine of commitment to prayer: “All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper ), and to prayer.” Acts 2:42 NLT
When crisis hit the church and Herod began to pick on pillars to eliminate them, their daily routine became their weapon in crisis: “Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.”
Acts 12:5 NKJV
The challenges of life will always expose your daily investment. When Goliath screamed, David brought out his stone and his sling. He had mastered the use of the sling. It definitely was a part of his daily routine. He used in battle what he had mastered in training. He used in crisis what he had mastered as a daily routine.
If you do not sing daily, you will find it hard to sing in crisis. If you do not confess the Word daily, you cannot speak the Word in the middle of a crisis. If you murmur daily, you will murmur in the middle of crisis also.
Champions are groomed by their daily routines. They only display what they have mastered in the ring!
What are you committed to daily?
That will be your weapon when crisis also hits!
