Is God Your Priority?

Some people advocate working hard and playing hard. I think that is fine so long as each is kept in properly balanced perspective. However, I pray that they will make following hard after the Lord Jesus Christ a priority above all of their work and all of their play. Indeed, I must first exemplify this trait in my life. How might this look in your life? What must you do to make God the priority?

  1. Excellent and extremely valid questions! Surely, we need to be honest with ourselves about the place that GOD should have in our lives on a daily basis.

    Christians have a saying: “Jesus first.” Yes, this is definitely true, but how do we really put Him first on a daily basis in this busy, noisy world? I think the answer is found, among other verses in His Word, in this verse: “Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psa 46:10 KJVR) Those first eight words speak volumes. We, myself included, will do well to heed them every day.

    Additionally, when we focus on the LORD, allowing His Word to daily encourage, challenge and change us, as we pray for knowledge, understanding, wisdom, discernment, and protection from deception (including self-deception), we will be much better equipped to face the world. The result will be that the world will see Him in our lives and He will “be exalted in the earth.” \o/
