"But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you." -KJV(Matthew 6:33)
#1. God is not just another priority. Yes, it is important that we set up a program on how to properly and effectively manage the different responsibilities that we have in life. Secular living, however, has us categorize God as spiritual or religious. CAUTION! Doing this means that we will have other areas in our lives that are not influenced by God and this will lead to failure. Matthew 22:37-38, (ESV) "And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
#2.The primary principle for real success in life is to ensure that your spiritual life overshadows your worldly pursuits. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
Romans 12:2, (ESV) "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Luke 12:34, (ESV) "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
#3. Put people before things and value them above yourself. (Philippians 2:3; 2 Corinthians 8:5; 1 Timothy 5:8; 1 Timothy 3:5)
#5. You can be sure that your list is safe, and is created in a way which will allow everything you do to glorify God. Pray meaningfully over each priority.
#6. Prioritize your list.
#7. Proceed to follow your prioritized list. Note that your priorities may change, but you must be careful never to de-prioritize God.
#8. Examine your heart on a regular basis to ensure that you are keeping spiritually fit.
#9. Meditate prayerfully each day on each priority.
#10. Your time is in God's Hands. Our times are in God’s hands, Your time is in God’s hands, My time is in God’s hands! “But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand.” – Psalm 31:14-15, ESV
