First Things First
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
We want to give God the first and best part of everything. When we give God the best, He blesses the rest. We give God the first part of our day when we start with a quiet time with Him; we give Him the first part of our week when we dedicate Sunday to Him; and we give Him the first part of our money, when we tithe the first 10% to Him.
January is commonly when we reevaluate our priorities and establish goals for the year. Let this verse challenge you to put God first in your life this year. One practical way to start doing this is to join us for 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting. We encourage you to join us as we dedicate the first part of our year to praying and fasting before the Lord.
Lord, I want to put you first in every area of my life. Challenge me in the areas where I have not made that the case. Help me to establish new patterns this year. I choose today to seek you first God, in a way that I never have before. Amen.
