We need to put God first

Daily Thought

Your Word for 19 April 2024

Hebrews 4:16
‘So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.’

When God is first in our lives we can enjoy security.  For this to happen in our lives we need to put God first.

  • Psalm 16:8-10 ‘I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me.’

  • If we will put God first then we can enjoy the following:
    You can feel secure
  • 1. His presence – ‘He is at my right hand’
    2. Confidence – ‘I will not be shaken’
    3. Joy  – ‘My heart is glad’
    4. Happiness – ‘My tongue rejoices’
    5. Security – ‘My body will also rest secure’
    6. Promise – ‘You will not abandon me’
