As we start our day we may think I have to do this and I had to do that. I need to get ready quickly, so I can make this happen or make that happen. Let’s keep in mind that studying God’s word should always come first. What makes things right and what makes things work out is not our running around getting this done on a timely basis or that done quickly. But instead trusting God first and reading his word. Resting everything else aside. Then once God is first everything else will work out even better. Our doings aren’t enough, but trusting God brings true peace. Keeping God first we honor, love and trust him. He looks to see who will choose him.
We settle for second or even third best on our own efforts, but God’s plans are much better than we could ever work out.
