I think we all know that we need to put God first, but do we really know WHY???
This verse is WHY! God wants us to actively pursue him. He doesn’t want us to sit around on the sofa, twiddle our thumbs, ask Him for things and wait for things to happen.
I am a prime example of this…
Me Me Me!
God wants us to actively go after Him. Let me share my own life example of this: maybe you’ve heard my story of my many years of singleness… I was single way up into my 40s. And I was so depressed, I was not happy with my life. I had a good business. I owned my own company, and that was going well, but I wanted a spouse, a husband so badly. That was all I could think about. And I literally prayed for this every day but that’s all I was praying for.

Are you struggling with Who You Are Now?
The last thing I was doing was seeking God’s heart. I was a believer, but I wasn’t focused on Him, only ME! I literally begged God every day for a husband. And I couldn’t figure out why wasn’t He wasn’t bringing me my husband? I mean, HEY, I was talking to God daily🤷♀️😫 You know why? Because I wasn’t pursuing God. I wasn’t desiring God. I was desiring a husband. My husband search was my idol. That was what I was worshiping, not God. I’ve got to make God number one. It was almost like God was hitting me over the head and saying, you know what, you ain’t gonna get your husband until you make me #1!!🤦♀️🤦♀️
Seek God First
If all you’re talking to God about is: where’s my new job? Where’s my money? Where’s my husband? I just know that God is saying…I have to be number one. You are His child. You are His masterpiece. You are His creation. You may not feel like a masterpiece, but God made you unique, special, different, fabulous, because you’re created in His image.
Every single day God needs to be numero uno, not when you feel like it, not when you have some time to sprinkle out a little prayer here and there but every single day! God truly wants us to actively pursue Him, not wait around for Him to act in our life.
Daily Time with God
Guess what’s going to happen when we actually begin to put Him first every day??? Amazing things!!! Your life will transform when you make time for Him every day. You’ll feel His peace, joy, a renewed desire for Him, and blessings pouring down on you.
I’m not saying that if you put God first, next week everything’s going to change. Nope! It’s going to take some time. God’s going to have to work on our mindsets, our desire for Him, our time with Him, our schedules, etc… But it WILL happen!
At first, it’s going to feel like a chore. You may think, “I don’t have time for this. I don’t want to do this.” But guess what, God will change your heart. And God will give you that desire for Him every single day.
God wants to do amazing things in your life, If you show Him you’re putting Him first. How’s that for a promise!?!?!?!

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray you will work in every one of our lives in our hearts and give us a burning desire for you. Lord, Jesus. Shower us with this wisdom, this knowledge, this understanding of you, and equip us with what we need so that we can speak your word and your truth the way you want it, Lord, I praise you for working in all of our lives. And I know you are doing amazing, amazing things for us and mostly for your glory. Amen…
