Keep The First Thing First

When we teach children how to go from crawling to walking their first steps, we expect them to stumble. We expect them to take time to learn how to walk on their own. It takes patience, kindness and love as the children learn and grow. God is like that too. He is a loving and kind Father.

As we begin to walk with God, it takes time to read HIS WORD, learn HIS WAYS and obtain HIS KNOWLEDGE. He isn’t angry with us. He understands that our spiritual growth takes time to cultivate and grow. He bandages us up and continues working in our lives, all the while He is patient and stays with us until we reach our destination.

As we read in Proverbs 4:1-9, we are told to pay attention in order to gain and to know intelligent discernment, comprehension and interpretation for God gives us good doctrine. While we grow in our abilities to rightly divide and understand God’s word, we are not to forsake His teachings or corrections. It is written that we are to hold fast to His word, keep His commandments and we shall live.

The first and most important thing is get skilled, godly wisdom and understanding. By walking with God and reading His word, WISDOM will be added. But why is wisdom so important?

Wisdom leads to understanding, discernment, comprehension and interpretation. She keeps, defends and protects you. Proverbs 4:8, says to prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her. She shall give to your head a wreath of gracefulness; a crown of beauty and glory will she deliver to you. Proverbs 4:13 says take hold of instruction and do not let go. Guard her for she is your life.

So in other words, Wisdom will always lead you to God’s best. Wisdom will guide you in all things. You will know how to rightly handle money, friends, family, commitments. She will lead you to make right choices.

Wisdom is life. Seek first the Kingdom and everything else shall be added. Read the Word, hear the Wisdom, get knowledge and discernment for they will fill your life with wonderful outcomes.

Life can get so busy that we forego reading the Bible and instead start watching teachings online or on the television. However there are many false prophets in the world today. They may be giving you only a small fraction of the truth that keeps you in a defeated pattern. The only true way of knowing God and having Him fill your life with sustainable truth is by reading HIS WORD yourself.

God’s Word is the truth and is worth reading every single day. It brings life, revelation, breakthroughs, miracles, healing, Wisdom, discernment and understanding. Isn’t that worth turning off the television, the internet or the video games to spend time with the Creator of the Universe who knows you better than you know yourself?

Don’t miss your moment. Keep First Things First! Get into the Word today and allow HIM to cultivate you. Be filled with Wisdom and all she offers. You will not be disappointed and your life will be filled with much greater things than you ever believed possible.

Shake To Wake

Have you noticed things are being shaken these days? From politics and religion to our own family lives, there is nothing being untouched through the hand of our Heavenly Father.

“At that time his voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.”(Hebrews 12:26-27 NIV)

The “why” is critical to understanding the real purpose. Many of us get complacent in our time with God. We get too busy striving to be better, spend more time with family, working ourselves too hard, trying to make more money, getting ahead in life, building better lives and the list goes on and on and on.

Nothing is wrong with those things. God wants us to have nice things, loving families, caring about others and being victorious in life. However it’s when we strive so hard on our own and forget that it is HIM who provides, restores, loves, and gives us the desires of our heart is when things must be shaken for us to return to HIM.

It’s not just on a personal level that is being shaken. Right now we are seeing nations being shaken. America’s politics have become something we’ve never seen before. It’s unprecedented where dividing lines are being thickly drawn, ugly accusations are being thrown and dark versus light is so prevalent.  We are seeing good people being smeared and decimated.

This is the time we must repent for losing sight of our first love…GOD! We must spend our most precious moments with our Heavenly Father. We must pray for all those who are standing with God and pushing God’s Will for America and around the world.

Children of God it is time to raise up, praise up, and worship like never before. Grow deeper in God so He can wake you up to purpose, discernment and place you on an unshakable foundation.

Jesus died to break every curse that could come against us. Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. Don’t stop pushing forward. We are called for such a time as this! Return unto Him and He will return unto us. Don’t let this critical time pass you by. We are needed to make a difference. Every vote counts. Every person you can impact today counts. Every moment you spend with Jesus counts. It’s time for action! Are you ready?
