Who Is First?

Today ask yourself, what do I put in front of my relationship with God. The one that has the final say, the one that's opinion matters, the one that gives you salvation, peace, joy, freedom, hope, love, a future, eternity.

If you or your children do not know Jesus, ( not know of Him ) truly know Him... Ask why would that not bother you?

Matthew 10:28 NIV

28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

Religion, Churches, Leaders, Parents have made a relationship with Christ seem impossible. They have made you feel like Jesus is displeased with you. They have made you feel like you could never be good enough.

I am hear to tell you today, the relationship with Jesus is meant to be personal, it is supposed to be intentional, it is everlasting. He loves you, He created you, and He wants you to come back home to Him one day. You and your children.

The people He chose to raise you are your parents in the flesh, they were hired/assigned to raise you to know Christ. You as a parent are hired/assigned by God to raise your children to know Christ.

I recall when I was lost. I would feel God pulling at me saying: Do not do that, Come here, Tell me about it, Let me have it, Just be still, I got it, You can not trust them. I would ignore Him and go full force to handle it on my own. Sure it would get me by for hours, days, sometimes years. Then one day it didn't.

Those people, places, and things you must have, they fade away. That self, that you want to please will never be satisfied. That love, attention, time, position that you are looking for only comes from Jesus.

You can not fit a square box shape ( your way, truth, life, ) in a heart shape ( Jesus = His way, truth, life ) John 14:6.

All Jesus ask is for you to seek Him first, and then He will add all the things your heart desires. Seeking Him first does not look like bondage.

It looks like conversations with Jesus. Such as: did you see them do that, what do you think I should do now, do you like this color on me looks good, can you help me with this, let me tell you how my day was, I am feeling like this, what do you like about me, thank you for all you do for me, thank you that you see me this way, thank you for protecting me, thank you for guiding me, how can I help you, what do you want to do today, sharing your relationships, sharing your ideas, sharing your promotions.

Sound familiar??? You been screaming this to friends, children, parents, pastors, co-workers, class mates and even when when it seems that they hear you.. they are on auto pilot, have opinions that shoot you down or control you, very rarely you are heard and very rarely you are supported or encouraged.

Jesus wants to hear about it. He wants to help. He will resolve it. He will lift you up. He will show you how proud of you He is directly and through others.

Stop trying to please the creation, even if the creation is you. And get to know your Creator, Jesus Christ.

Romans 1:25 niv

25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
