What do you put ahead or over God in your life?
If we are not careful these items on the list and many other can become a god to us. We make them our highest priority and begin to worship them.
Deuteronomy 5:8-9 (NIV)
8 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
Proverbs 3:6 (Living Bible Translation)
6 In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
In Deuteronomy 5:8-9, it states that it is a sin to put anything before God. When we do so, we are opening ourselves up to hardship, discipline, and a time of wilderness. When we honor God and make Him our priority, it allows us to have a deep and more itimate relationship with Him. Through this relationship we can hear the voice and command of God, as He directs our path. Obedience and relationship moves way for God to fullfill His promises to bless and fill us with His joy and peace. Make the decision today, to put God first!
