Seek Him First

I’m thinking of you today. Are you staring at that calendar of blank days with uncertainty? Wondering what each new day will hold? I’m not sure what divine appointments God has for you, but I do know this—if we seek Him first, He will hold us through it all.

The One who first loved you, dares to whisper, “No matter what, I’ll take care of you. All you have to do is~ Seek first my righteousness [not yours] and everything will be added unto you. I will “meet all your needs,” (Phil. 4:19).

The quality of your life; the direction of your day hinges on whom you’re putting first: you or God. Placing God first in all you do secures a spot in the center of His will.

Can you imagine a better place to be?

So let me whisper a word of encouragement, “When you put God first, there’s nothing in heaven that won’t be yours if you need it. And God has given you all you need to complete His perfectly planned to-do list for you.”

Be comforted in this moment sweet friend that God knows your heart. He sees you placing Him first above everything else. He sees his daughter humbly submitting herself to His will and His glory. He sees a child of His surrendering her future, her life to Him.

Today is going to be a good day for you. It may not be easy. There may be unexpected inconveniences. There may be hair-pulling moments which appear to be more than you can handle. But somehow at the end of this day, you’ll breathe a sigh of relief as you whisper to yourself, “Whew, God was ever present through it all and He is so good.”

“There were endless demands on Jesus’ time. Still he was able to make that amazing claim of ‘completing the work you gave me to do,’” (John 17:4).~ Elizabeth Elliot

“if we seek Him first, He will hold us through it all.” That’s hope! Love that he is faithful to stay by our side through the good and the bad.

First I want to say it’s nice seeing you blogging today. Keeping God in the center of our lives will bring more to us then we ever even dreamed of. Nothing comes before Him and as I tell my husband I love you but God comes before you. My prayer time comes before everybody, I make them wait because I can’t miss out on what God has to say to me….Great post sis
