Putting God First

 

Key Thought: God deserves first place in our lives.

Key Scripture: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33)

Prayer: Father, thank you for promising so many wonderful blessings to all who put you first. I want you to be first in my life at all times, Lord, and as I seek first your kingdom and righteousness, I trust you to supply all my need.

Your Word declares that my heart will be found where my treasure is. Lord, I want you to be my treasure. You are the one God, the Father of all. You are above all and through all and in all believers. Help me, Father, to keep you first and to keep all my priorities in line with yours.

You are the first and last, O God. Beside you, there is no god. All other objects of human worship are idols. May I never be guilty of idolatry, Lord.

Forgive me for each time when I have allowed other things in my life to take your place. I repent of any and all idolatry. I put you first in my life, Lord Jesus.

Help me never to desire first place, Lord, because that position belongs only to you. Many that would be first shall be last; only those who put you first will be exalted.

Lord Jesus, I ask you to show forth all longsuffering in my life, so that other people will see your marvelous plans and patterns and be drawn to believe on you unto life everlasting. I crown you as the  rightful King of my life. You are my Lord.

I love you, Lord, because you first loved me. You are first in everything. You draw me and I run after you. Help me always to respond promptly to everything you initiate in my life.

Lord Jesus, you are the first and the last, and everything in between. You are alive forevermore. God has given you a name that is above every name, that at your name, Lord Jesus, evey knee should bow and every tongue confess that you are Lord, to the glory of God, the Father. Praise your name, Lord.
