Exodus 32:31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
One of the ways one can experience GREAT SUCCESS AND VICTORIES in life is to always put GOD FIRST and everything and everyone else after.
How do you start your mornings? Do you awake and worship God? Do you take time out to pray and read your Bible? Or do you just rush out of bed, bathe your skin, brush your teeth and rush out the door leaving God out of your life? That is why things are not going well for you my friend. You are leaving GOD out of your life! Do you listen to positive spiritual music in the morning? Or do you turn on LOVE SONGS AND JAM BAND MUSIC? Do you put God first?
God is a very JEALOUS God and he wants His praise or else he would allow pain, suffering and poverty until He gets the praise and attention that he DESERVES for being such a loving, gracious, merciful and PROVIDING God daily.
After a tremendous deliverance of the children of Israel, they forced Moses' brother Aaron to make them golden Gods when Moses went to the mountain to seek instructions from God on how to lead and govern his people. This angered God and he authorized severe punishment for those who disobeyed. He ordered their EXECUTION.
Exodus 32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour. 28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
When you don't put God first and put other people and things before Him, you'll remain in a state of poverty and suffering all your life. When you do put God first, here's what ALWAYS happens. You gain real peace, success and joy. Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
The choice is yours global friend. Continue to keep God to the back of your life and let idols of gambling, music, revelry, porn, adultery, cheating, money become your GOD or put GOD first and live in PEACE AND GREAT SUCCESS for the rest of your life.
Hope is ahead for you once you PUT GOD FIRST!
