Has your heart towards God grown cold or distant? By seeking to know him and his attributes—to know him more intimately—your love for him can be stirred and grow. God wants a relationship with you and to change your whole life. Will you press in and know him?
1/1000th of your day is 86 seconds.
If you invite God into even a fraction of your day, you could be transformed.
If you’re interested in quick encouragements, then you will enjoy our 86 Seconds videos. Each one is a mini-devotional from Gary Wilkerson as he points out simple but profound truths in scripture that can change the way we approach each day. These reminders of the Word’s power will help you live as salt and light to the world.
Start giving 86 seconds of undivided attention to Jesus today.
We study the attributes of God to know God better. And through knowing God, we can move in faith, power and strength. In the weeks ahead, Gary will be sharing the various attributes of God so that you may know your Creator more fully.
If you pick and choose the attributes of God you prefer, you'll form a low view of him and struggle to trust him. In contrast, if you study the attributes of God and get a high view of who he is, you will gaze upon his glory and be filled with awe.
86 seconds may not seem like much time but God can do so much within that time frame. Giving him 86 seconds of your day can help you turn your heart towards him, reflect and repent, and set your priorities. Give God 1/1000th of your day and watch him stir your heart to engage passionately with him.
Another aspect to increase is the company you keep. Spend time with people further down the road than you—a Paul to your Timothy—to grow your increase.

The third tribe that had a hard time obtaining the promise was a tribe that wasn’t all in. They came upon enemies and obstacles but didn’t want to do the work it required to receive the fullness of what God had for them. Are you willing to fight for the promise?
Last week Gary began a series identifying three groups we all fall into when approaching the Promised Land. He identified the first group: those who walk in fear and experience delay. Today he shares more about the second group: those who don't manage their resources well and have portions given to others. Don't lose the fullness of what God has for you through laziness or an attitude of sloth, but instead, steward what has been given to you well.
Is there something you are dreaming for or God has promised for you but you're waiting? There are three different ways people react to possessing the Promised Land and in this episode, Gary uncovers the first group: those who delay.
Nothing satisfied the woman at the well, not even the six men she had been involved with throughout her life. But when she met Jesus, she found the love she had always been looking for. When you pursue Jesus, the pursuit of the things of this world grow dim in comparison to his amazing love.
