But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.Matthew 6:33Rock concert, sales, first in line book signing, front row Tournament of Roses, Black Friday, free door prizes, World Series tickets. There are lots of things that may make a person stand in line for a long time. You hear about it for after Thanksgiving day sales and a massive amount of people sometimes even camp out in front of the store to be there for limited quantities of a certain item.
I have stood in a few lines but how many would stand in a line to find out more about Jesus? Would it take the first 100 getting 'I Love Jesus' tee shirts to get you in line? What do you need to do to truly make sure God is first? Get up earlier? Say no to some invitations. Re arrange your schedule. Hang out with different people who love Jesus?
Stop making excuses. Find your Bible and put it on table next to sofa. Just get still, meditate on God's glory and goodness. Don't just make Sunday the day you are 'holy' but make the entire week a quality time week. When you focus more on God your problems will seem to fade.
PRAYER: Lord I can not imagine a world where I wasn't free to worship or own a Bible but many can. I would stand in line for you and your word. I hunger for more of you. In Jesus' name. Amen
