07 Apr What’s Your Top Priority?
Hey there, I need you to take a minute to analyze your top five priorities arranged based on their order of preference in your life. Now! Rate yourself, what number on your list do you place your love for God and his Kingdom? Be sincere to yourself, what’s your top priority?
It’s currently rampant how everyone claims to be occupied with their own business, doing all it takes to achieve it. Ignoring the life anchorage that holds every other aspect of life together.
This type of lifestyle was formally practised by the unbelievers who cared only for themselves, their main goals were centred on power, money, fame, influence, and affluence. Which gains detrimental effects on them and those around them due to mismanagement.
However, believers are seen engaged with the activities of life, having little or no regard for the things of God, because their priority is misaligned. What’s your top priority matters a lot to your success in life. Once the main life anchorage which is Jesus Christ is off your radar, your struggles to acquire other things become uneasy, endless, frustrating, and disastrous.
Jesus Christ while on earth gave an easy route to acquiring everything in the book of Matthew 6:33; But seek first his kingdom (God’s kingdom) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. During Jesus’s ministry, he came to understand how difficult it is for men to acquire life possessions with his human strength. Likewise, the distraction that route entailed. Hence, he provided a suitable route.
Dear sisters, this is a call for us to return and set our priorities right, setting Jesus Christ as number one, second to none. However, until we are able to lay down our all to Jesus, our struggle will persist.
Candid advice; today, become determined to pursue God’s kingdom and its righteousness, I assure you that the money, ministry, power, peace, fame, true love, children, happy marriage and home, career success, good health, and lots more which you seek will come chasing you, instead of vice versa.
However, to experience peace and notable progress in life your top priority should be centred on Jesus Christ. He is that anchorage that holds our life ship together no matter the turbulences of a life storm. Therefore, cherish the presence of God, learn his ways, and practice them effectively.
Remember, anything gotten outside the circumference of God’s help is with a temporary effect, and fades away rapidly. Most times there are accompanied by sorrow, fear, and pain. Don’t get me wrong. I am not writing to discourage you from acquiring the necessities of life. Rather, I want you to see reasons why you need God’s help to obtain all your needs. King Solomon reveals this in Proverb 10:22; The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.
Likewise, Deuteronomy 8:18 gave a perfect illustration; But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. In essence, the power to achieve whatever we desired comes from God and hinged on our ability to make him our top priority.
