In Everything You Do, Put Me First

IN EVERYTHING YOU DO, PUT ME FIRST, AND I will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Putting Me first sounds so simple and straightforward. But the world, the flesh, and the devil war against your efforts to do this. You can easily justify letting other things creep into the space and time you had set aside for Me. If this happens only occasionally, it is just part of being human. However, if you see it becoming a pattern in your life, watch out! Your priorities may have been gradually shifting—until I am no longer your First Love.

Putting Me first is not an arbitrary rule; it is the way to live vibrantly, joyfully—close to Me. It is also the way to live purposefully, letting Me direct your steps. When I am your top priority, other things fall into their proper place. So delight yourself in Me first and foremost. As you walk in the Light of My Presence, I open up the path before you—and give you the desires of your heart.

In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.

[Proverbs 3:6]

“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” —

[Revelation 2:4]

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

[Psalm 37:4]

If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. —1

[John 1:7]
