Put God first and you’ll never be later.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)

Amen thanks for this wonderful word. With God, there’s always an appointed time for things, and when you put Him first, trust in His timing, and keep the faith, miracles happen! You can’t believe in your dreams if you don’t believe in the giver of the dreams. In all things, put God first.

@FaithinGod Amen to this, this is my father’s life verse Matthew 6:33 and favorite he always share to us, this verse played a big role in my childhood, my faith in God as i grew up stronger because of this verse and because my father share it to me. let me also share this verse in accordance of Matt 6:33 , Proverbs 3:6 Living Bible (TLB)
6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.

When we put God first, it doesn’t really matter where we end up. John the Baptist said it best: Jesus should increase, as we should decrease. Positions shouldn’t matter. This is also reminiscent when Jesus told his apostles except they become like little children they will have no place in God’s Kingdom, and this rebuke came when Peter, James, and John were arguing who should be positioned at the right hand of God in heaven. Talk about open rebuke :slight_smile:

Oh, Lord, always take first place in our lives

When we put God first, everything in our life will fall into their proper place. Not automatically of course. It may take time but it will, eventually. While in the journey of waiting, we have to put all our trust in Him. He wants the best for us. Through Him, we’ll have the finer things in life.

Our life is full of uncertainty. Unknowingly, we fall into darkness because of a certain thing. One day we are on top, in the following day we are in the bottom… However, as long as we seek truth in all things, by pursuing loving God from our heart and practice love for God, letting God decide all things for us, we will be able to maintain a proper relationship with God. We should always remember to put God at the center of our lives and make him our priority and never be an option…

When we put God first, everything else falls into place.

I keep my eyes on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

When we focus our attention on our Father, we will find encouragement. We will find strength. We will find that we are never alone. And nothing can ever control or shake our foundation.
With God, we don’t need to be afraid. Even if terrible things have happened to us, even if we feel alone, even if we’ve gone through hell and back, remember that with Christ we will be strengthened. We will rise again.

Amen to this. Put God First. With God, there’s always an appointed time for things, and when you put Him first, trust in His timing, and keep the faith, miracles happen! You can’t believe in your dreams if you don’t believe in the giver of the dreams. In all things, put God first.

Make it your goal to have a deep, intimate relationship with God. Let Him into every area of your life. If you constantly look to other people for answers and validation, pray about this and ask the Lord to help you stop doing that and instead look to Him. (See 1 Thessalonians 2:4.) As we live to please God, He promises to bless our lives and make us prosper.

When you decide to serve God with your whole heart and make Him first in your life, your soul will prosper and your joy and peace will increase. Remember to lean on Him more than anything else, and tell Him, “God, I want to do this, but I can’t do it without You.” He doesn’t expect you to live for Him in your own strength or ability, and He understands when you make mistakes.

So if you mess up, don’t be discouraged and let it hold you back; confess it and keep going. God will give you grace to do what you need to do. One day at a time, you and God together can do anything!

Yes always put God in the center of everything and you will be blessed. Be with him and God will be the one to take care of you.
