Wednesday's Words of Wisdom--Priorities

This is a repost from about a year ago, but I was came across this quote again and wanted to share it now.  

"The devil loves it when we say we believe then prioritize everything in our lives ahead of God." ~AW Tozer {Let's place God ahead of our fears, agendas, desires today!}

I came across this quote the other day on the Proverbs 31 Ministries Facebook page and it really stood out to me. So many times I let things get in the way of my relationship with God.  Most of the time, for me, it’s my to-do list….although lately I’ve been struggling with some anxieties and fears as well.  With so much going on in life, it’s easy to get sidetracked by the business and the worries of day to day activities and forget that I’m supposed to be trusting in Jesus!  That’s exactly what Satan wants!  When he can get us off track then we are not able to completely fulfill God’s will in our lives.  When we’re distracted by Satan, we can’t focus on the work that God has prepared for us!  When I read this quote, it hit me hard.  If I’m going to proclaim that I’m a Christian and that I believe God’s Word, then I have to place my trust in Him.  Not myself.  Not circumstances.  Not anything, but God!  He is in control.  No matter what’s happening in my life, no matter how fearful or anxious I might be, He is STILL in control! 

So instead of sitting around thinking on my worries and anxieties, or putting my to-do list ahead of anything else, I’m going to straighten out my priorities!  My relationship with Christ is first, above all else.  Once my life is centered on Him, then everything else will fall into place.  From now on, God is my number one, and my fears, agendas & desires are moving to the back burner!
