When God spoke to Moses in the desert about the things he required from us, the first thing he sais was for us to always consider him first. God wants our love and our affections without competing with anything else in our life.
The scripture says, “You shall have no other gods before me” Exodus 20:3 We may think that as Christians we are already serving the right God, therefore this is already covered. Think again.
Jesus tells us in Mark 12:30 ” Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”
David shows us in Psalms 73:25-26 what that love would look like. When we realize that God is all we need. “Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
A love so powerful sometimes is hard to comprehend. Do not give up. If we allow God to take over our lives he will show us how to live that love.
Let’s pray today that we can have our heart after God, that we can surrender from our selfish ways, shedding all our other passions for a passion for him.
Talking about passions. Check out my new book, The Road Home and learn how Desiree went after the wrong passions in her life and her struggles to find the right passion to follow.

One thought on “God First”
To hear the Lord through our consecrated emotions is a very intimate experience. This happens after we give Him our emotions and ask Him to consecrate them for Himself. Giving Him our emotions is surrendering all of our desires, passions, feelings and asking Him to replace them with His own desires, passions and feelings. The Holy Spirit is very emotional and the closer we walk with the Lord, the more we will come to realize how He feels, experience how He feels, and then finally express how He feels.
