DAY 41 - THE LAST SHALL BE FIRST
“But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.” Matthew 19:30 (NKJV)
In all of the races that I have ever participated in or watched, it is of the utmost importance to position yourself in the first group of the race, if you want to stand any chance of winning.
It is not very likely that you will be able to win if you start from the back, having to pass each and every individual who is in the race, and still come first. Yet the Bible gives us a mystery that the last shall be first. Imagine your sports instructor encouraging you to be last in the race, so that you win the prize.
There is also another great mystery that I want to share, which is found in Matthew 6:33, where it says “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything will be added unto you.”
This mystery is so profound! The Bible says if you make God first priority, you do not have to worry about anything else in life, for it will be given unto you.
This mystery says that when you seek God wholeheartedly, you will gain those things that you are not pursuing.
“No matter what comes my way, I will pursue the will of God for my life. I declare that as I make His Kingdom my first priority, I will be first and not last, in the mighty Name of Jesus!”
