Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It gives clear simple instruction - for your good! First things first. In any person’s life, mis-prioritization, or losing focus on the priority, ends in disillusionment, (disenchanted, disappointed, is this all there is? I thought it would be better than this), even delusion (a misleading of the mind), and disaster – things fall apart. When you neglect the priority - you soon become distracted, ineffective, confused, lost. God gives a compass – the true north – the priority to set your life by. You can measure it, and if you’re off, you can return, and life will become recalibrated to accurate, good, successful. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to you. Don’t seek after the added. Don’t chase after what comes free with it. Get the it. Seek first – before you do anything else… the kingdom of God. Myles Munroe – Kingdom, where the King has dominion. If the King has dominion, He is in control of you, what you do. God is making your time, thought and money decisions. He owns your schedule, His Word transforms your thoughts, opinions, and beliefs, and He makes your money decisions. You steward His money – by doing with it whatever He tells you. You know where it is, and you ask Him, and He tells you what to do with it. You think like He thinks, Your time belongs to Him, you serve Him as your master, not your own desires or what you want to accomplish in life. You let Him set your course, you don’t turn to the left or the right. You let Him lead you, you are a follower of Christ. You do what He does, and what He did. Followers are like mini-me’s. They are just like who they follow. Just like Jesus only did what His Father told Him to do, you only do what Your Father in Heaven wants you to do, as the Holy Spirit reveals it to you. It’s so easy to stray from a heart after God, from the Fear of the LORD, from the ways of God, His commands, His precepts, living in a way that pleases Him. But that is the Kingdom of God, Righteousness, Peace, Joy – and those come when you are walking in step with Him, in His ways, His plans, in what He has assigned for you today. It’s always worth it. And every day you fully submit to Him, changes your location completely. Like one small degree to the right, it won’t take long until you are in a totally different place. Where His blessing can flow, where His purpose for you can be fulfilled. Praying that you will seek Him First – PiVAT before dinner, so you get his plans. PRISM – your habit of soaking in His Word – so you continue to think like He thinks! And His wisdom controls how you operate. Praying that you will love his presence in worship, and continue constantly in prayer. Praying you will overcome daily with your testimony, with a Daily Call partner – sharpening each other to remain focused on that priority – First things first. Seek ye first teh Kingdom of God... PiVAT, PRISM, and your Daily Call. They will help you live the Kingdom life that He has for you. Use 4C’s to get God’s plans financially. Join a group of obeyers in a PiVAT Small Group. Do whatever you can – to center your life in His Kingdom, where your life is completely directed by Him, where the King has dominion, and every blessing He longs to give you – will become a never-ending river flowing into your life.
Love you all,
