So many times Christians decide to leave God as the last option. When we are going through tough times, we run to Him for shelter and comfort but when times are good, He doesn’t hear much from us. We need to learn how to lean on Him in the good times and the bad, so that when bad times come (and they will by the way) you have His strength to get through it.
Christians often do not have a daily relationship with God but a weekly or monthly one. We decide to pray when we have time, or worship Him only on Sundays because that’s what a good Christian should do, right? Not so. You must be willing to invest time in your personal relationship with Christ, instead of leaving it for the last minute or throwing in a quick amen before your meal.
Too often, God is left as the last option because we have so many other ways to resolve our problems. There’s health insurance, money in the bank, connections, relationships that can give us a hand, our family, friends, intelligence, background and so much more. What do we need God for? We have much faster ways of resolving our problems right? What’s the use of praying to God when we have all that we do?
Believers in Christ need to pray and seek God in the good, bad and in between. We need to let God do the super and we do the natural (super-natural). Putting our faith to work while we live out our lives day by day is how we can keep God our first option, before He’s thrown to the back burner as the last.
Keep Him first in your life, relationships, business, job and school work. Whatever it is your doing, seek Him first in prayer, fasting, reading your bible, and just living out the way Christ has commanded us to live.
Make sure you turn to God first before you chose other options, and let Him guide you to make the next step.
