February 27th 2023 Monday Motivator
Part of the idea for the Monday Motivator is to begin the week off with God because how you start gives you a better chance of finishing strong.
That got me thinking…
Have you realized the first four words in the bible are “In the beginning, God…”
What if we started the week off with God?
What if we started our days off with God?
What if we quit putting God last and made Him first?
When you start with God, you overcome.
When you start with God, you are spiritually prepared.
When you start with God and stay with God, you finish in God’s will and victory.
We will finish in His strength and grace if we start with God.
We cannot take on everything in our strength. We need the power of God on our side. We need His wisdom to handle life’s challenges.
I challenge you to start your days and week off with God.
Don’t just start, but take Him with you throughout your day. Finish with Him!
Don’t make the mistake of starting with Him but finishing without Him and then wondering where things went wrong!
God wants to walk with you throughout your entire day.
Take Him to breakfast, take Him with you to get your kids, take Him to work, take Him shopping, and take Him with you when you lay your head down at night.
We are limited in our ways and thinking, but God’s ways are always higher and greater. He is the secret to success. Wouldn’t you want someone like that to be on your team?
God sees every path and the ending.
This is why He has given the Holy Spirit. To be with us daily, accessible at all times when we need him.
How do you take God with you everywhere?
1. By meditating on His Word
2. Praying without ceasing
3. Praising Him throughout your day
I encourage you to begin this practice of starting and finishing with God and see how the outcome is greater than if you were to do it on your own.
Joshua 1:8 says, “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.”
1 Thessaliones 5:16-18, says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Hebrews 13:15-16, “Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise — the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”
