First Things First

Ecclesiastes 12:1 (KJV) Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.

It is easy to become enticed into following after things which on the surface appear to be harmless. That is how the enemy of our souls tends to employ his age-old tactics to persuade that “it cannot be too bad if everyone is doing it” (ref. to Gen. 3:1-13; Mt. 4:1-11). The truth of the matter is that if it is an activity or opportunity that causes you to question whether God would approve of it, then more often than not, it is something that should be avoided at all costs because the end result could cause more harm than good (Mt. 7:13-14).

We tend to make reckless decisions when we forget to consult God for direction in our lives.

This is why it is important for us to remember to be consistent with our personal time with God and constantly seeking His face for direction (Prov. 3:5-6). If we make a practice of putting Him at the center of our lives and at the forefront of everything else, we “shall hear a word behind us, saying, “This is the way, walk ye in it, when we turn to the right hand, and when we turn to the left” (Isa. 30:21). This same voice will lead us and guide into every path of truth if we will listen and take heed to what He is saying (Jn.14:26; 16:13).
