Give God First Place in Your Heart

The first of the Ten Commandments is to love your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. Jesus is calling us to seek first the kingdom of God and everything will be provided to you. Wherever your mind is, that is where you will spend your time. What if God had not given you the power to play or read or work? You could do nothing. So He should come first in your life. God knows what is in your heart; give first place to Him. The only way to catch God is by love. Meditate and pray deeply daily. When you give up sleep to meditate upon Him; when you forsake selfishness and desire for Him; He will come to you. When you actually sacrifice for Him, He is caught in the net of your love. Nothing else can capture Him.

Never give anything preference before God. So long as you let other things come first, He will wait. But your delay may be too long and your suffering may be great. Don’t procrastinate. Is the living just birth, play, marriage, children, old age – life is finished? Life is much deeper and more wonderful than that. When you know God, there is no sorrow. All those you loved and lost in death are with you again in the eternal life – Resurrection.

There is no use of becoming attached to anything in this world. Be always ready to forego anything for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Jesus says, “It is better for thee to enter into life maimed” Mk 9:43. Hence, I need to renounce the desires and the habits that prevent me from communing with God. Your only real need is God. Become completely absorbed in your prayer with faith that God is listening. Thus if you fervently and lovingly pray to God, He will come to you at any time.
