Favour what are your priorities? That was one question that struck me.
You see, I was beginning to think that my twenty four hours was not enough; I mean I should have like thirty six hours instead of twenty four; I have so much to accomplish. God should understand that I can only spare thirty minutes of the twenty four hours (which He gave to me) to talk to him; I need to pursue life goals, do stuff and build a career.
Then I hear that question, WHAT ARE YOUR PRIORITIES? What happened to pursuing God?
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.(NKJV)
Sadly, I had been chasing other things instead of chasing my Jesus.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.(NKJV)
When we draw near to God, He draws near to us and we cannot afford to be double minded with God. Steadiness in our relationship with Jesus is the key.
Follow after Him!
Seek the LORD while He may be found,
Call upon Him while He is near.(NKJV)
I have a friend who told me, He has dropped his ambition at the Lord’s feet and just want to see the beauty that the lord would make his life. I picked that up and I just want to please my Jesus and I want to encourage you to have the same mindset.
Today, I want to pose the question, the same question. WHAT ARE YOUR PRIORITIES?is God your priority?
Remember what the lord told the Laodicean church in Revelation
2 “I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; 3 and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary. 4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.(NKJV)
You create time for the things and people you value. Spending time with the creator should be one of those things. God shouldn’t have to compete with things and people for your attention.
In the natural world, communication is very important for a relationship to grow, how much more the spiritual realm which is even more real.
Family, you cannot grow spiritually if you cannot spare some of your precious twenty four hours with the Father.
Remember you cannot serve God and mammon
24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.(NKJV)
Jesus loves you immeasurably
P.S: The spiritual realm really is far more real than the physical and if you want to survive after this age has passed. GIVE YOUR LIFE TO JESUS! No, I am not threatening you I am just stating a fact.
Choose life, Choose Jesus.
