Hearing From God Each Morning

First Place

Little children, keep yourselves from idols (false gods)ó[from anything and everything that would occupy the place in your heart due to God, from any sort of substitute for Him that would take first place in your life]. (1 JOHN 5:21)

As a person who desires to hear from God, it is very important that you give God first place in your life. Until our desires for more of God are stronger than our desire for other things, the devil will have an advantage over us. Once we see the truth, he will lose his advantage, and we will be in position to make radical progress in our relationship and fellowship with God. It takes most of us a long time before we finally learn that what we need is not what God can give us, but God Himself.

If you are diligent to seek God and keep yourself from all other idols, you are honoring Him and He will honor you. He will reveal Himself to you and bless you in ways you could never have imagined. Ask yourself sincerely if there is anything or anyone in your life whom you put before God. If you find there is, then simply ask God to forgive you and make an adjustment in your priorities. He is our number one priority and nothing else will work properly until we give Him the place He deserves.

Godís word for you today: Keep God in first place in your life.
