Morning Routines and the Reality of putting God First Because He LOVES you!

Okay, here we go again with morning routines this time, dealing with how God wants us to let Him be first things first in the morning.

Take a look at the devotional I did below:
1. In my castle the things that need my attention are: time spent reading the pages of my bible and my ability to be loving.
2. The important thing I see in my life is reading the pages of God's word.
3. God is asking me to read the bible instead of just my iPhone bibles in the morning before I get ready in the morning.

2 Chronicles 7:12-16 NIV
[12] the Lord appeared to him at night and said: “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices. [13] “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, [14] if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. [15] Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place. [16] I have chosen and consecrated this temple so that my Name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will always be there.
Psalm 5:1-3 NIV
[1] Listen to my words, Lord, consider my lament. [2] Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. [3] In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
Luke 10:38-42 NIV
[38] As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. [39] She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. [40] But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” [41] “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, [42] but few things are needed---or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
[16] Rejoice always, [17] pray continually, [18] give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
2 Kings 18:5,7 NIV
[5] Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel. There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him. [7] And the Lord was with him; he was successful in whatever he undertook. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.
Psalm 6:9 NIV
[9] The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer.
Mark 1:35 NIV
[35] Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Luke 10:42 NIV
[42] but few things are needed---or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Don't let God go as the middle of the day thing!
Does Jesus love you? Does he want to Jealously spend the whole day with you? The answer: yes!

The Savior of the world wants it ALL!
Follow Him!

Blessings!
