Acts 17:28 NKJV
 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’
We are created and God, our Creator, gives us life and the very breath in our lungs. As we walk through each day of this journey of life, we all need to remember His goodness and mercy that allows us to live and move and have our being.
Psalm 24:1 NLT
 The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him.
It is easy to get caught up in life, work, school, hobbies, activities, sports, money, etc. God created all of these things for our pleasure and sustenance, but not to become idols in our lives. God wants our full attention on Him first so that He is first before all of these other things. If these other things try to push to the forefront of our hearts, we must quickly push them back and allow God to always remain first in our lives. God detests any type of idol. And idols don’t necessarily have to be a carved image or statue, they can just as easily be any of the above mentioned – anything we put as our first priority.
Matthew 6:33 NKJV
 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Ezekiel 11:21 NLT
 But as for those who long for vile images and detestable idols, I will repay them fully for their sins. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!”
God has called all of us to follow after Him and put Him first in our lives. As we yield to Him and His will, He will continue to work in our lives and direct our steps. He will work out all of those little things that we get so stressed out about. Isn’t it so very easy in our human minds to get stressed? We’ve all been there! But when we lift our minds and concentrate on the things of above with an eternal view, everything come into focus much better about what is really important in this life. It is here that God wants us to remain — Him first, everything else second!
Proverbs 20:24 NLT
 The LORD directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?
Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT
 Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.
Job 12:10 NLT
 For the life of every living thing is in his hand, and the breath of every human being.
I love you and am praying for you today!
