Priority determines Blessing, Direction, and Destiny

Confusion comes from wrong priorities in our life. Confused marriages come from wrong priorities. Confused finances come from wrong priorities. Confused physically comes from wrong priorities. Confused spiritually comes from wrong priorities.

If you want to be blessed, the first priority is learning to put God first. (Matthew 6:33-34, NKJV)

God has to be the ultimate source of meeting any and all our needs. Not our mates, jobs, pastor, etc…they are only conduits used by God. The way we spend our time tells the truth about our priorities. How we spend our money tells the truth about our heart. (Matthew 6:21, NKJV) If you don’t tithe and give to the church, you are lying to yourself about loving Jesus and the church.

How we spend our time with God tells the truth about our love for God. If you tracked your time on a day to day basis for a week what would it tell you? The truth. Most people lie to themselves. We see ourselves as we want to be. Many times others see us as we really are. The Truth will set you free.
(John 8:32, NKJV)

If you want to be blessed, the second priority is your mate.

(Psalm 127:1-2, NKJV)

This verse tells us that unless we give it all to the Lord, our marriage will end up empty.

How can we make our mate a priority? (Matthew 6:21, NKJV)

How we spend our money tells the truth about our heart. Is it your priority to give or to get in the marriage? How we spend our time with God tells the truth about the love of your mate.
