Daily Devotion – Prioritize God Above Everything Else
The word priority goes hand in hand with importance, and in fact, according to Dictionary.com, it’s defined as the highest importance.
If someone asked me what the highest mountain in the world was, I wouldn’t give them a list of five. I would simply reply “Mount Everest.” Certainly, there are other mountains among the tallest on earth, but only one holds the title of being the highest.
So it is with priorities. While many compete for importance, only one holds the title of utmost importance. Which one? Well, that all depends on your heart. What is it that you prioritize most in your life? Is it family? Is it your job? Is it your marriage? Or, is it your Lord?
Jesus says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33, KJV)
What He’s telling us here is to prioritize God above everything else. Let your faith be the funnel through which everything flows. The way you treat your husband, the way you raise your children, and the way you present yourself to the outside world… should always begin with a desire to please God and put Him first in your life.
Putting Him first means giving my best. Not just a bit of my time and a piece of my heart, but the best of my time, and all of my heart.

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
