God’s place in my life
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:30-33
There are people today when asked if God occupy preeminence in their life will readily admit that He has. Yet it seemed that it is just a lip service because their actions speak differently. They will admit that God honors those who obey His word but their actions show that they ignore the wisdom that comes from God when they make decisions in their lives. They will claim that they believe God’s command that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” yet they hardly give to causes that promote the work of God. They will say that God answers prayers but seldom have you found them come to God’s throne of grace. The way you live your life and the actions you take will reflect if you are obeying God’s command to “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously.” Jesus commanded His followers that when they make Him the King of their lives they will align themselves and their plan to what matters for His Kingdom. This will mean making His priorities for your life your priorities. Submission is the key to obeying what God commanded and the only way you could submit to Him is when you stopped struggling in making Him the Lord of your life. Who is Jesus to you? Have you really accepted Him in your life as your Lord and Savior? If you have, then follow Him and let Him lead you to do His will through your life. Submit to His leading. There was an occasion in the Scriptures when people were asked by Jesus about their commitment to God. Most of them denied Him and turned away from Him. Then, He turned to His disciples and asked them if they will walk away from Him just like what others did. Peter responded, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God” (John 6:68-69).
