It is very important to put God first and put your trust in Him. Your life was placed in you by GOD and you should give unto Him the glory due unto His name.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And GOD saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good.
Don't give honor and praise to mankind, because they are just one as yourself. Give thanks and praises unto the Lord which made the heavens and the earth.
You shall have no other gods before Me.
Some put their trust and confidence in the things of the world, such as money, cars, houses, children, wives, husband, education etc... But we should never put these things before God, we need to put God first not things.
When we put other things in the place of GOD, we are automatically making a god out of those things.
There is a Scripture which said that the LORD is jealous. (Exodus 20:5)
This means that our Creator don't want us to put anything before Him. Put God first and watch Him work all things in your favor.
2 Peter 3:9
The LORD is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Mankind don't always fulfill their promises no matter how sincere and discipline they might be.
The heart of men are deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: Who can know it?
We put GOD first and put our trust in Him because He is not slack when it comes to His promises. One of the greatest promises that He gave us throughout the Old Testament, is that He would save us from eternal damnation by giving His only begotten Son in our stead.
Obviously, this promise was fulfilled.
But seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD, and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
Many persons pray to God only when they need a favor, not because they have a lot to give Him thanks for. We should put GOD first by sharing the gospel and build up His Kingdom.
Don't just run to God only when you need Him to do something for you, but make yourself available to do something for Him too.
