You come first

With God you come first. You mean the world to Him. You mean so much that He sent His only begotten Son to earth to die for you and to save you. You are most precious in His eyes and He adores you. I once was told that the verb “adore” was too strong when referring to what God feels about us. It is not too strong. His love for us is a giant. It is bigger than the universe. It reaches higher than the stars. We come first. That is how important we are to Him. Don’t let anyone tell you that God’s love for you is limited and restricted. We are the ones who put a limit on it and who put it in a box. God’s love is outside all the boxes that we could ever imagine and dream up. We need to open our minds to the depth of His love. When we do, we understand that His love will always save the day. When we are going through a tough time, we still come first. God still cares about us the same and He is still going to take care of us. We ought to have faith in God’s love and in the truth that comes with it. The truth is that nothing can separate us from God’s love. No one, no problem, no trial and no devil can separate us from God’s love.

We are first in line. We are all first in line when it comes to God. No one is in front of us and no one is behind us. We are on the same level and we are deserving of the same powerful love. This should help us be more humble and love one another more. God has no favorites and He has no one better than you and me in mind. He doesn’t think about some of us more than He thinks about other people. There is the same amount of love and attention for all of us in His heart. His heart is huge and it has you in it. You are entitled to God’s love every single day. This is true no matter how you feel and no matter what you think. Your feelings and your thoughts don’t coerce God into loving you less. You are the apple of His eyes and you are part His child. His children come first. You are not less than perfect in His eyes. You are His beloved creation and He wants you to think of yourself in line with His thinking. Think about what that means for you in your everyday life.

“You come first” means that Jesus is always near you and He is always listening. That is very important. Jesus, God Almighty, pays attention to your words, to your actions, to your tears, to your thoughts and to your prayers. It doesn’t take a miracle for Him to listen to you. He is always tuned in. I believe that if we truly trusted that God was always listening, we would have stronger faith. It is easy for us to believe that a friend is listening to us when they are right in front of us. The Lord is even closer than anyone around us. He is in us. He is in our hearts and He is in the best place to hear what’s going on in our minds. You are not number 2, 3, 4 or 245. You come first and what you have to tell the Lord matters to Him so talk to Him. Keep talking to Him. Keep turning to Him with the assurance that you come first and He is attentive. He is attentive to you all the time. Find comfort in how much you mean to Him. Don’t let anything keep you from relying on Him. You have the best spot in line to talk to the Lord. He is all ears and He is going to bless you and do something great for you. You come first so don’t put yourself at the end of the line. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
