FIRST THINGS FIRST!
By Norvel Hayes

 Jesus told me, "The Church is sadly lacking because they live in poverty, they live in sickness, they live in defeat and don't live in heaven's blessings because they don't worship me enough." They don't put FIRST THINGS FIRST! 

 Read and Study the Gospels. Learn of Jesus as your Healer, Provider, Protector, Deliverer, Your Boss and Fully Trust in Him!  Read  Matthew 11:29-30:

29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

 Boldy declare out-loud who Jesus is to you!  Show God you have faith by doing what he tells you to do and he will begin to move on your behalf! It's not hard to get God's blessings. Live clean. Make Jesus your Lord. Totally sell out to him.  Worship him. Say, "God, I'm yours. You're the Master of my life!" 

 Also, check up on what's coming out of your mouth!  "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." ~ Matthew 15:11 

 Study every word of Matthew 15:21-28 and OBEY IT!
 
21Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

 22And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

 23But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

 24But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

 25Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

 26But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs.

 27And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.

 28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

 You must put FIRST THINGS FIRST! 

 Get on your knees before God, and pray until God comes with the answer!  Worship the Lord! Your worship to God never does please him to the fullest until he sees you worship ALONE. What God sees you do in secret, he rewards you openly. (Matthew 6:6)  Start worshiping God every day in your bedroom, by yourself .  Yes, God is pleased when you enter into praise and worship in your church services; however, this is only TRAINING for you!  You MUST have a relationship with Almighty God for yourself! You develop this relationship by spending several minutes, up to 2 hours a day, in worship before the Lord.  Worship him first, not asking for anything!  Then, present your requests. 

 Finally, ALWAYS THANK GOD for what you asked.  Whatever your problem or struggle, show God by putting first things first!
