But all things should be done decently and in order.-1 Corinthians 14:40
Are you drawn into the world’s system? Stop allowing your priorities to become aligned with the world around you. When we accept the idea that we can ignore basic disciplines: brushing our teeth, brushing our hair, bathing, eating nourishing foods, exercising our bodies, getting enough rest, and most importantly connecting with God. We are following the world’s model. Which causes us to suffer because of the way we neglect our fellowship with God and His order. Take the initiative to put things on hold and honestly examine what is going on in your life.-2 Corinthians 13:5 Stop making excuses saying you don’t seem to have time for that, just because the pace and demands of life continue to press you on all sides and you fear falling behind. Stop beating yourself up, suffering from one perceived failure to the next. It’s time to establish the right priorities in life. It’s time to slow down and put things into the proper perspective and in the right order. I know life would be easier, if all its pieces held together and always made sense.
When the Bible says that “in him [that is, Christ], all things hold together,” it is describing the fundamental structure of all reality. “All things” means all things. God wants to restore order in our lives. We owe it to Him to give up our unorderly lives and get to in order with His plan. Allow God to restore order in your life by submitting to Him in obedience and He will bring back harmony in your life.-1 Corinthians 14:33 It’s not always easy to discern everything in the often messy reality of our everyday existence… but take time to look for signs of God’s plan in your life. God can bring His order into even the most chaotic of places.
“…be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.”-Romans 12:2
Align your priorities! Starting with God first!
