I Corinthians 10:31 (KJV) Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
If you are like most people, you seek the admiration of others in your life, your coworkers, friends, and your family members. But the eagerness to please others should never overshadow your eagerness to please God. And your desire to impress others should never cause you to compromise your beliefs or to defy your conscience. In short, you must be as diligent, and eager to always put God first. The Lord is speaking to your heart today please pay attention!
Each new day presents countless opportunities to put God in first place, or not. When you honor the Lord by living according to His plan, purposes, and commandments, you inherit the abundance and peace that He promises. But, if you decide to ignore God’s teachings, you’ll pay a price, perhaps a very great price indeed. Trust me I know this for a fact in my own life!
Often we give the power of our lives to others, like spouses, lovers, mothers, fathers, and bosses. But God is the first order for our lives; the Lord is the one we need always please. The Lord will not destroy our self-esteem, but rather the Lord will build us up where we are low, short, and insufficient. It’s time to stop relying on the wrong people to validate, support, and affirm us, the Lord is here right now and encouraging us more than you can imagine! The Lord has spoken let us hear and respond today, enjoy the rest of your day.
Quote Gloria Gaither: There may be no trumpet sound or loud applause when we make a right decision, just a calm sense of resolution and peace.
