Topic: Put God First

Eccl.9:11 -I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

The race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the strong; it is the finger of God that makes the difference in every man’s life. The God-factor is the real factor that creates the future that belongs to you. Today I speak to into your destiny; you will have an encounter that will set your destiny on course and keep you flying when others are still trying to locate where to go in Jesus name! It can take only God to make that happen to you.

Eccl.3:14 -I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.

The God-factor is the real factor that guarantees the future. When the God-factor is neglected, the future becomes dicey, bleak, uncertain and vulnerable to all kinds of challenges.

Joshua 1:8 -This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

See the above scripture as the major requirement of the school of success if you want to soar. It should be a part and parcel of your life. There is no future in life without Jesus. Accept full spiritual responsibility for your life.

Rom.8:6 – For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

A carnal minded believer is vulnerable to all kinds of spiritual molestations which lead to death. That is why a carnal-minded believer faces the same tragedy with an unbeliever. The word of God recommends that you should be drunk with spirituality.

Eph.5:18 – And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

You are supposed to be addicted to the things of the spirit; it is one thing you cannot overdo. Never graduate from the school of the spirit if you don’t want to fall prey to the devil. You shall not suffer death of any kind; your life will shine brighter and brighter in Jesus name!

2 Cor.3:18 -But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

God’s word is the mirror that when you stay on, you change from glory to glory as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Deut.28:1-13 [READ] Graduating with a first class in school is no guarantee for a future; it is God First that guarantees a future.

Matt.6:33 – But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

When you seek God’s kingdom first; God will give you those other things that others are dying to get as addictions. Many great men have died because they didn’t have the great God as their defense in the day of trouble. Hence, I encourage you to begin to build your spiritual life; place God first in whatever you do and you will never lack amazing stories to tell in the name of Jesus the Christ –Amen.

God bless you
