CHANGE YOUR HABITS; CHANGE YOUR LIFE (PART 5)
THE HABIT OF GIVING GOD FIRST PLACE IN YOUR LIFE
“If you give God first place in your life, you can’t come in second place.”
The number one priority of our lives should be to have a habitual fellowship with God. The greatest commitment in life is serving and pleasing our Maker who loves us unconditionally and desires an intimate relationship with us. Life is primarily all about God, everything else is secondary.
Without God life becomes a meaningless ordeal but with God life is a meaningful ideal. When we give God the best part of our lives, He takes care of the rest part of our lives. When we let our Creator into every room of our hearts, He illuminates every aspect of our lives. God wants us to seek his presence and not his presents; He wants us to seek his face and not his hands.
God’s greatest desire is for us to be in habitual fellowship or intimacy with Him. When we are single-mindedly God pleasers, He becomes proud of us and attends to us.
Our Creator is ever ready to walk and work in us; with us and through us in order for us to be conformed to His image. And when Divinity dominates our humanity, we manifest an impeccable lifestyle or habits that lead to the citadel of greatness.
When we compartmentalize God in our lives our destinies will be full of contempt.
When we only come to God as an “emergency landing” whenever things go wrong in our lives, our lives will eventually crash. When we are too busy to commune with God through studying and meditating on His word and prayers, then God will be too busy to attend to the details of our lives.
When we seek and pursue God with our whole heart, He opens His whole hands to us. When we only need God to fix things in our lives, our lives remains unfit to be used by Him, leading to inner emptiness.
When we invest quality time with God our destinies become upgraded to a higher quality. When you ignore God in any area of your life, you are courting trouble.
When God owns your entire life; then you will own your emotions, consequently, you will own good habits. When you neglect or ignore God in your life; your emotions will own you and consequently, bad habits will own you.
When you yield yourself to God, good things become yielded to you. When you yield yourself to the cares of this world, you fall under its weight.When you serve and give with the right motive,
Life will serve you with its vault of valuables. When you serve things and give to the unbridled impulse and passion of human nature, you become the servant to bad habits leading to destiny wreckage.
When you give God proper place at the center of your life, everything else falls into place. When you give God the leftover of your time, finances, attention, energy, obedience and love, you get the crumbs out of life.
