Dunamis Seeds of Destiny 13 September 2020

Daily Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche 

TOPIC: PUTTING GOD FIRST

Avoid the temptation of doing other things first before speaking to God in the morning. Avoid the temptation of reading, writing or sending an email or a text message first thing in the morning before talking with God.

SCRIPTURE: But seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you put God first in the day, you connect the strength, wisdom, and Divine resources to handle that day.

In our previous study, we looked at the necessity of wisdom. We saw amongst other things that wisdom is needed to eliminate stress and struggles from our life.

Today, we shall be looking at one of the wisdom tips required for daily living.

To live wisely daily, you must determine to put God first in the day; let God take the first place in your day.

If you put God first in a day, that day must go well. If you allow God to take the first place in your day, the day must end well.

Mathew 6:33 says, But seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.

Genesis 19:27 shows that: …Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:

Avoid the temptation of doing other things first before speaking to God in the morning. Avoid the temptation of reading, writing or sending an email or a text message first thing in the morning before talking with God. Avoid the temptation of making phone calls in the morning before you remember to pray. Avoid the temptation of doing other things first in the morning before having time for God.

It was Martin Luther, the reformer who said, “I have so much to do today that I must spend the first three hours with God in prayer before starting the day”. Can you imagine that? However, for some people, the opposite is the case. They would say: “I have so much to do today that I don’t have enough time to pray.” But Martin Luther made up his mind that he must first spend three hours with God because he had so much things to do. He must spend three hours with God in prayer before God before stepping out to face the business of the day. That was wisdom!

When you put God first in the day, you connect the strength, wisdom, and Divine resources to handle that day. You connect the strength for the day because they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31). So, put God first in your day. Begin the day with God.

Remember this: When you put God first in the day, you connect the strength, wisdom, and Divine resources to handle that day.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Refuse to fall into the temptation of doing other things in the morning before keeping your schedule with God.

2. Put God first in everything you do.

3. Seek quality time with God before you begin your day.

PRAYER: Thank You, Lord, for showing me the wisdom of putting You first in everything I do. I ask for the grace and discipline to fellowship with You first at the beginning of each day before I do other things, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

FOR FURTHER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: WISDOM FOR DAILY LIVING.

QUOTE: To exist independent of God is the first foolish thing anyone can do in life. To operate without taking counsel from God; to live a life that is independent of God is a foolish lifestyle. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Daniel 10-12

AMAZING FACT: The role of the Queen in an ant colony is to lay tens of thousands of eggs, ensuring that the colony remains strong and mighty.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: As you exist in the God-first mode, you shall begin to see Divine help like never before, in Jesus’ Name.
