Give God first place in your life, and He will take care of the necessary things of life for you. He will give you peace instead of worry! Last night at Bible Study we memorized Matthew 6:33 for the graduates, and we prayed for them. Nancy and I love each one of you graduates, but most of all, God loves you, and He will be a friend who never leaves you. If you give the Lord Jesus the first love of your heart, you will never be ashamed or disappointed.
But seek FIRST His kingdom and His righteousness,
Today, I read about Elijah and the Widow in 1 Kings, and it's the same idea as Matthew 6:33! If the widow decides to put God first, God will take care of her through the famine. He will add what she needs. What will she do?
Read the story in 1 Kings 17:13-16:
Then Elijah said to her [the widow], "Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it FIRST and bring it out to me, and afterward you may make one for yourself and for your son. For thus says the LORD God of Israel, 'The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the LORD sends rain on the face of the earth."
Will you give your heart to the one Person who will never leave you or let you go?
What will you do?
For me to live is Christ.
