This morning in some of my reading, I came across Deuteronomy 11: 16 (NLT):
But be careful. Don’t let your heart be deceived so that you turn away from the Lord and serve and worship other gods.
Let the gods go in your life. What are the gods in your life that keep you from time with God? Is it your marriage, money, children, addictions, social media, or maybe a combination of the things mentioned?
If you put God first, he will bless you financially, He will bless your marriage, your children, and He will allow you time to have fun. Living a God- filled life is not boring and you will not feel like your are missing out.
Take a moment each day and commune with your Father. He wants to talk to you but you can not hear Him because you are too busy.
Instead of watching that hot TV show, sit still in His presence. Instead of talking on the phone with your friends, for hours at a time, talk with your Father. How can we be too busy to talk to the One that created us and gave us the ability to talk? How can we be too busy to listen to the One that created us and gave us ears to hear? HOW??
Give up those little gods and see just how much God truly loves you!!!
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
