Our Greatest resource on the planet is time. Obviously because we have it in abundance we all take it for granted until it runs out on us. Without time, everything else becomes useless. All great and terrible men in history got to the end of their time and suddenly realised they whole world was not enough without time.
Putting God first in our lives means giving God quality time in prayer, worship, fasting and His word. . The tithe concept works with time too. Ten percent of all resources given us in life should be dedicated and given to the Lord. This means you should give God 2.4 hours of your day as the tithe of your time on the planet. And the principle of first things first would also show you that the very first hours of your day would be the best to give unto God. Before you get too worked, carried away, frustrated or dealing with the issues of life. Let’s give God the first hours of your day as the first fruit.
Thinking through your day would show you how busy you are and can’t find an extra two hours. However, when you realise how many hours you spend on entertainment, recreation, eating, playing, fighting and all the movies you watch, suddenly you realise that time management is the issue. Learn to manage every minute you are alive to not only enjoy but maximise your time. Making time for God at the beginning of your day will set you up to have a great and blessed day. First things first means giving God the quality time He deserves.
SCRIPTURE READING: Ecclesiastes 9:11 I returned and saw under the sun that— The race [is] not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.
DEVOTION PRAYER: My God, today I give you time in prayer, fasting and Your word in Jesus name amen.
