Throughout life, we face challenges and triumphs. We like to think that we can make it on our own; that we can solve our own problems and reap the rewards. Because we want to do things on our own, we sometimes try on our own, then, when all else fails, we turn to God!
God shouldn't be a last resort. We should not wait until we have exhausted our other options or failed on our own. Instead, God should be first. Whether the challenges we face are large or small, we should start by going to God in prayer. When we have reason to celebrate, we should praise God and include Him in our joy. God is our help. He will sustain us. We should go to Him first, not when all else fails!
Go to God first and allow Him to sustain You!
Thank You for being in my life and sustaining me. Help me to always go to You first. In Jesus I pray, amen.
