Last week I asked whether God passed the interrupt test in your life. Chris Briscoe, a missionary pastor in Korea, made an excellent point in a comment. If we don't start our day, tuning our ear to listen for His voice, then chances are that the cacophony and confusion of the world will drown out His voice when He does speak.
We need to start our day focusing on Him, then everything else will fall into its' proper place.
So, before you look at your phone, workout, read your emails, check your texts, get breakfast - go meet with the Savior. Praise Him, thank Him, offer Him your day, bring your questions to Him, then watch how He moves through you, around you and for you.
God has made it clear. "You shall have no other gods before Me."
Jesus said, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength."
God has said that he is a jealous God and that He will share His glory with no one.
But are there things in our lives that we have allowed to become more important than God Himself? Spouse? Children? Ministry? Work? Anything can become a god to us, if we are not careful.
How do you find out? Ask yourself, "Does God pass the interrupt test in my life?"
If He does, your priorities are straight.
