Topic: Putting God First
To be interested in the interests of God is to be treasured by God; you cannot put God first and come last in life.
SCRIPTURE: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be interested in the interests of God is to be treasured by God; you cannot put God first and come last in life.
Putting God first in your life means to make God the number one priority of your existence on the earth. It is placing kingdom matters ahead of your personal matters.
So, when God sees a person who is more passionate about His kingdom than personal pursuits, He baptizes such a person with the mantle needed to impact his/her generation (Matthew 6:33).
The truth is: to be interested in the interests of God is to be treasured by God; you cannot put God first and come last in life.
The reason why many people crash in life is because they lack the God-first mentality; they prefer to put their personal ambitions ahead of Kingdom vision.
Beloved, the question is, in your personal life, who or what comes first? In your career, business or family, who or what comes first? What about your finance? When money enters your hands, what do you do with it first? Do you pay your tithe first or you spend everything, the tithe inclusive? (Malachi 3:10). And to spend your tithe is to tighten your life; to spend your tithe is to squeeze your life.
Beloved, in this New Year, determine not to tighten or squeeze your life by putting your personal ambitions ahead of Kingdom interests; make God the Centre of your existence. Let your whole life revolve around God. As you do this, I prophesy that this year, 2020 shall be the best year of your life ever, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To be interested in the interests of God is to be treasured by God; you cannot put God first and come last in life.
- Determine that God should have the whole of your life.
- Make the payment of tithe your number one priority each time money enters your hand.
- Disengage from anyone or anything that wants to take the place of God in your life this New Year.
