“Glory to God in the HIGHEST heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” – Luke 2:14
In case you missed this past weekends worship experience as we kicked off our new series “HIGHEST”, I wanted to give you a recap of the message God had given me.
Many times in our lives we tend to please ourselves first and give God the leftovers. My prayer for each of us as we head into the Christmas season is that we will restore God to HIS rightful place in our lives. He doesn’t deserve our leftovers! He deserves the best! Psalm 121 says,
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
I am not a rocket scientist by any means, but I think it is obvious in these Scriptures that God watches over us! The reason He watches over us is because He is HIGHER than us and has a better viewpoint. So this week, this Christmas season, I want to encourage you to follow these 7 steps to restoring God to HIS rightful place in your life:
Honor God with your life (Romans 12:1)
Invest in time with God (Hosea 10:12)
Give yourself to obedience (James 1:22)
Humble yourself (Philippians 2:3-4)
Expect God to deliver (Psalm 18:25)
Stand on HIS promises (Isaiah 55:11)
Train your eyes to see Jesus! (Matthew 6:33)
