God First

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Psalm 132:3-5

“I will not enter my house or go to my bed, I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the Lord, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.”

O-bservation:

From very early on in King David’s rule, he had a burning desire to build a temple for God Almighty. There came a point in his life when he said, “I just won’t rest until it’s done.” His was a continual pursuit of “God First.”

A-pplication:

What drives you? What gets you out of bed in the AM? What is your passion, your pursuit, and your mission? I continually check those questions in my own life. When I read these statements about David’s passion I’m moved to prayer to say, “Oh Lord forgive me.” This is not a guilt trip devo this AM, but it is a push to get you and me on course. The truth is if our mission is “God First,” then every desire we’ve ever had will fall into its proper place. It was Jesus who said, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well!” (Matt. 6:33). That’s it! “God First.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This AM I reaffirm Your place in my life. For me it will always be … “God First.” Amen
