2014 – Day 172

I am the Lord your God, who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the
house of bondage.
 You shall have no other gods before or besides Me.
Exodus 20:2-3

What is your greatest priority?

When asked the greatest of all the laws of Scripture Jesus answered “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:35 The first of the ten Commandments says “You shall have no other gods before me.”

Establishing, developing and maintaining personal relationship with God is the most important commitment we will ever make in life. There are many things that can demand control of our lives and seem more interesting than following God. When we give into them, they eliminate all possibility of establishing and maintaining honest relationship with God.

God loves and cares for us: Principle 2 says “I earnestly believe that God exists, that I matter to Him and that He has the power to help me recover.”

If I am serious about recovery and changing my life to living life according to God’s Word I need to make my most important priority: Establishing, developing and maintaining personal relationship with God.

PRAYER: Lord, today help me not be be teamed p with those who do not love You! Help me to seek after Your will for my life and to follow through on my part of my recovery walk so You can follow through on Your promises in my life. Show me how to keep my focus today and everyday on establishing, developing and maintaining a stronger relationship with You. AMEN
