Begin Your Day With Jesus
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
What do you do when you wake up in the morning? Do you immediately begin to thank God for giving you another day, or does your mind even think about God? This is an important question for you to think about. God’s first and greatest commandment was that we should love God with all our hearts, with all our minds and with all our strength. If we are to love someone more than anything else in this world, our minds should forever be centered around them. If we have a newborn baby we would typically think about it the moment we wake each morning and rush in to its room to make sure it is all right. If we really love Jesus more than anything we should awake each morning and rush to Him to make sure everything is ok as well. Satan is also ready and waiting for us to wake up and wants to be the first to influence the hours ahead. He will make our life confused as he wants us to be consumed with what we are going to eat, what we will wear, what we will do and where we will go; anything to keep our mind focused away from Jesus. I am afraid that so many people do not wake up with Jesus first in their lives, as their minds wander and they begin to think about what Satan wants them to think about. The thought of Jesus usually is far down the list of what first occupies the thoughts of so many. It is extremely important that we need to talk to God first each day, and ask Him to watch over us and lead and guide us in the hours ahead. Taking time with God every morning takes practice and discipline, but is something that should be number one on our priority list. I would encourage each of you to begin to be aware of who you think about each morning when you awake. Is it Jesus?
