Have you ever felt like a boat drifting with the tide? One minute you seem to be heading in the right direction; the next your attention is pulled elsewhere. You may feel like you have great intentions but something always seems to get in the way. And you may even feel like you're always putting out fires, losing control of everything around you.
What if I told you it doesn’t have to be that way? The answer lies in where you've placed your devotion.
The word “devoted” can be defined as giving yourself entirely to a specific person, activity or cause. We are all devoted to something.
Some are devoted to family. For others, it’s their career. Some have great devotion for their favourite sports teams or television shows. We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded with things crying out for our time and attention.
“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.” Luke 16:13 (NLT)
There are many great things you can devote your time and effort to, but only one thing can fill you with what you need to handle all the rest. When you are devoted to God first, everything in your life flourishes. You will have the strength to parent your kids well, the insight to excel at your career and the unconditional love to have great relationships.
As you devote yourself to God, that drifting feeling passes and you'll begin to feel confident in who you are and the direction you're going.
How do you devote yourself to God and His Kingdom? By reading His Word and getting to know Him. Let's dive into seven methods you can use to get to know God's character, nature and His thoughts on you and your life.
