Are You Putting God First?

Luke 10:38-40 NIV
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

Are You Putting God First?

When I talk to family and friends they all talk about how busy they are, or all of the things they have to do. Life seems to get busy and we become distracted by our long “to-do” lists. Like Martha, we become troubled, upset and stressed while forgetting about what should be most important in our lives and that is sitting at the feet of Jesus! If we are troubled and distracted, we cannot give Him the attention He deserves, and we cannot hear from God to receive healing in our lives. Receive Jesus into your house and follow Mary’s example. Sit at His feet, study His Word and give Him your undivided attention. Put God first, read His Word as though you are sitting before Him hanging on His every word. Begin listening or continue to listen to messages on healing, read books on healing, listen to testimonies, read the Bible and confess the Word of God daily. Learn to put God first and let not your heart be troubled. Remember, God cares more about you than He does your “to-do” list.
