First let me translate the Chishona title, it means "Actually finding no time for it (such)". Can be used to suggest that
I've often told my fellows that the reason why i do not listen to circular music, drink alcohol, share much jokes or do what any commoner would call 'normal'; is not necessarily the fact that i have yet judged and discerned and evaluated and seen these to be bad per-say, but actually a lack of such time. The responsibility thrust upon me by the receiving of the Holy Ghost dis-permit me to waste time being involved in worthless activity.
Get me right here, in the 24 hours i'm given of God to live each day, i have more reason to share in the Kingdom experience through his Spirit, than to indulge and be conformed to the daily misery that this world poses. It is not that i have yet found it worthless, but just the magnificence of the glory of God manifest in my life deters me from indulgence in such.
I do not endeavor to be taken out before the time God has declared, even if the amount of trouble increases, its because the amount of Glory that comes with God's goodness makes it impossible for me to be moved or fanned by the misery and perverseness of this wicked generation, rather, its the power of God's grace that attracts every moment of my life, such that i behold more of Him than of where i am.
I am not poor because the riches i behold in the Kingdom experience outwit anything that can presume it self as a shade of poverty in my life, oh how His mighty hand covers me, as the day beckons, i will to do His will, i challenge every angle of my life to live in subjection to His holy name.
Thus, we ought always to thank God that He has given us such a work as to deter us from being involved in the work of the evil one. The parable of the vineyard owner who continuously recruits the bystanders citing that "they should not sit around being idle" whilst the harvest is plenty and the laborers are few teaches us that it is by grace that we are permitted into this labor of preaching and living the holy life. Let His name be praised, in Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
