If I were to attempt everything I do on my own and expect success, I'd only be fooling myself. Apart from God, I know I can do nothing! Nothing will be accomplished, achieved, born thriving and continue growing unless it's according to God's will, plan and purpose. This doesn't only include planting churches, building platforms, writing, speaking, parenting, pursuing careers, marriage or carrying out audacious plans, this includes everything we do, say and set our minds to do every single day.
Therefore, we need to make God the center of our hearts, lives, homes and everything we do. We need to be intentional about staying in constant prayer, devoting time in the Word, asking God His will and learning to hear His voice! "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me" (John 10:27).
When we focus on God and make Him our number one priority, we can remain in peace that surpasses all understanding, be more aware of His awe-inspiring presence and make better choices in what we do and say so we are living according to His ways.
No one ever said Christianity was easy, but having a relationship with Jesus Christ is the most fulfilling, rewarding and best invested time we will ever spend or experience.
Remember that a relationship with Jesus is of eternal value and so are you! Don't be consumed with confusion and aggravation, choose to consume yourself with the love, Word & presence of God as you are led into GREATNESS and SUCCESS in all you do—because living for Jesus is your number one priority!"
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you" (Matthew 6:33).
