How to Succeed: Give God the “First fruits” of your Time!
Ezekiel 20:40, “I require…the first fruits and the choicest of your contribution.” Good prayer to start each day with, “Lord each hour of this day, I’m depending on you. Let my words, my attitude, my decisions, and my actions bring glory to you.” Each morning you should give God your time before doing anything else. It is good to spend quality time with God every morning. Spending time with God in the morning can assist you with preparing for the day that lays ahead. Giving God “His time” is essential for getting closer to Him. I try to make time for God each morning and in the evening before bed.
God wants the “first fruits” of your time dedicated to Him. Spending this time with God lets Him know that you consider Him your No. 1 priority. Giving God your individual attention ensures that you maintain a close relationship with Him. Also, ensures that you are prepared for your day.
Give God your “first fruits” in your time, your service, and your contributions. God loves it when His children gives Him their “first fruits”.
