First Things First

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousnessfor they will be filled. Matthew 5:6

When you awaken each morning what is the first thing you think of doing? Turning on the morning show? Reading the newspaper? Checking your Facebook page for likes? Going out for a morning walk or run? Hey what about God? He is the very first thing that should come to mind if you are a believer. Spending quality time with Him daily is what helps you grow and puts your spiritual armor on for the day. 

Have you lost your first love and that being for the Lord? Have other 'priorities' squeezed Him to the back of the bus? Maybe it is time to take account of your life? Perhaps you are hanging with the wrong groups of friends who do not love the Lord and may in fact make fun of 'religious' people. Whatever the reason, God is calling you back to Him. Stop running away. Maybe you are involved in an activity you know deep down in your heart displeases the Lord even though the world condones it. 

Friend it is time to stop what you are doing and take account of your life. God does love you no matter what but He wants to have fellowship with you and not just for a tiny little 60 minutes on Sunday. Ours lives get so busy we often times forget about the one who gave us our life and put us where we are. Run back to Him today!

PRAYER: Father God I love you and there have been times when my busy day squeezed you out. I know it is wrong. I know I need you each and every day. Lord my desire is to stay on track from this day forward. In Jesus' name. Amen.
