PUTTING GOD FIRST.

Matthew 4:10 (NRSV)

[10] Jesus said to him, "Away with you Satan!" for it is written, 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.'"

It is good to be in service to the Lord.

There are so many things that are meant to distract you and bring you down. Life is filled with dinners, meetings, sales, conference calls, bills, events, and the list goes on and on. Once you wake up in the morning, and go about your routine, it is easy to forget that we are meant to serve the Lord, not ourselves.

I know I can get distracted surfing the web, day dreaming about a vacation, or imagining a Pinterest worthy redecorated apartment.  It becomes so easy to let my mind start serving my own wishlist, that I forget to focus on how God can use me.

But today God gently reminded me that He is the boss, and my time, my heart, my energy, and my spirit should only remain in service to Him. He knows best, He will use me, and He will fill my life with peace and surround me with His angels. No Pinterest board is going to beat that.
