“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength” (Luke 10:27, Mark 12:30, Matthew 22:37) Why is this the greatest commandment? Because everything else will fall into it’s right place when God is priority number one. If you love your boyfriend/girlfriend more than God; your work more than God, yourself and intellectualism more than God, your money over God; the material things you have over God; the pride and desires of the flesh over God… I have a word for you… It is never too late to turn and deny these idols/desires of the flesh and choose God and make Him priority number 1 and thus requires humility and submission. If you do this, God will give you the rightful person to marry, the rightful job, the genuine wisdom that comes from Above, the joy of the Lord and all other things will fall in their rightful place… take it or leave it.
IF WE OBEY THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT… THEN WHAT?
8 Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily; your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’
11 And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
12 And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in.
Peace and Blessing!
