Ruts and Routines(Psalm 143:8)


Certain routines are good. They increase our efficiency and ensure that important things get done. After all, we need to have fixed times and places for certain things or the world would be chaotic. Creation is designed to operate on schedule, and, as part of it, so are we. We need food and sleep at regular intervals.

We sometimes hear legitimate warnings about allowing routines to turn into ruts. But the Bible indicates that having set of times for certain things is good.

While enjoying carefree days, we must not become careless about spending time with God. Savoring spiritual sustenance is a routine for all seasons. – Julie Ackerman Link

You’ll go forth a little stronger

With a fresh supply of grace,

If each day you meet the Savior

In a secret, quiet place. –Adams

Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength. – Isaiah 40:31
