Put God First - By Esther Campbell
Many of our everyday lives are busy and we don’t have much time to spend with God. There is nothing like too much time with God. God treasures our time with Him.
Bible says clearly in
1 John 5:21
Dear Children, Keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts.
Take some time and assess your hearts and see what is that thing that is taking you away from God. Where are we spending our thoughts, energy, time and money?
Are we working overtime to impress our supervisors or putting lot of money in the retirement account or buying stuff to impress others or watching TV shows non-stop or spending time on social media or have thoughts that are not pleasing to God. Is it replacing spending time with God? Then let it go and let God take over.
Pray and ask God to multiply your time, talent and treasure that glorifies His name. Use that time to help and encourage others, and pray for others. Invest your talents and treasures for His kingdom. Nothing is in vain when you spend time with God. You are saving treasures in heaven when you invest in Godly endeavors. It might look like foolishness to the world. But God blesses us above and beyond through His presence. When we spend time with God, we have Peace, Joy and Love, that nobody can take it away from you. And btw you can’t buy them from this world. And His word says all these things will be added unto you when you seek His kingdom(Matt 6:33). We will always have more than enough when we seek Him. More importantly we will be experiencing piece of heaven. So always put God first, spend time with Him and seek Him with all your heart.
