“Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:21)
We prioritize things. Do we have things in the right order? Let’s see, Jesus gets five minutes in the morning and/or evening and a couple of hours on Sunday. Is this the way we deal with the One who is above all? Jesus is above all names and has dominion, power, and authority. The first commandment tells us to love the Lord with all our being. Check your priorities and make sure they are set in the right order.
Lord, where I do not have temperance and I am unbalanced, help me see more clearly and come into balance. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth so that I may walk humbly with You, the One in whom we all have our being. Lead me to be one who lives out Your commands and follows You all the days of my life. Let me not give You just lip service, but give myself whole-heartedly.
Lord Jesus, God in the flesh, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly. Guide me O Lord in the way of truth so that I may humbly walk where You lead. Direct my days and my deeds so that I may live the truth that You are the One, above all others, and therefore, the most important person and the One who is central in my life. Lead me as You will Lord and let my heart be conformed to You. Amen.
