Devotion: Do first things first


Proverbs 24 : 27 ” Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.”

Learning to prioritise is very important. In the age we are, almost everybody is busy to make ends meet and seek entertainment and as a result some priorities in life are no longer priorities.

BibleGod is the priority before everything else. Let your beginning be Him(John 1:1) and all other engagements should follow.

Prioritise him even your finances, in your time and in your every activity. During the time of prophet Haggai, everybody was busy with their own things, building their own homes and forgot God.

As a result things were not working for them. Haggai 1 : 9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the LORD Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house .”

Some people think they are too busy to pray. Others quote unbiblical word by a mere philosopher who said to work is to pray, so the more they work, they believe they are praying. Give God priority. Don’t feel happy to live in a mansion but go for prayers in a dilapidated classroom. Do something about it.

Don’t feel contented living in a tiled house but go to prayers in a mud floored building. Recheck your priorities and act.

Apart from God, on personal level, you should also write down every day priorities. For example a student should not prioritise football above classes even if the game is between known teams and the lecturer is the most boring.

Same as business person and employee. Do first things first.
Write down your priority list and ensure its followed. Dont be entangled wuth unnecessary things.

Confession I give God priority in everything I do. I prioritise in everything I do. In Jesus Name. Amen +265888326247
