First Things First 

  

Before I bring my need, I will bring my heart, before I lift my cares I will lift my arms.”

These words from this song remind me of making a promise to God. 
When we make our promises they are most likely heartfelt and made from a place of true desire, but many times fall flat. 
Well that’s not what happens with God’s promises. 
What does a promise mean when it involves God?
 It means there is always an answer, a result, a change, an assurance!
My prayer is that we continually shift our hearts to wanting, actually yearning, to SEEK and KNOW God.
 I know many of you reading this already know what it feels to like to feel God’s Spirit lovingly pull you to spend time with Him. 
The feeling of ‘I have got to just sit down and read His Word’ or an overwhelming feeling of thankfulness and reverent fear and love for your Father. But if you have never truly experienced this love relationship or you have fallen away and you feel as though your relationship with the Lord has grown stale and empty, let me remind you of God’s promise.
 “When you come looking for me, you’ll find me. “Yes, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed.” GOD ’s Decree. – Jeremiah‬ ‭29:13 MSG‬‬




Do not be discouraged by how much time or devotion it will take to know your Father because he is full out seeking and desiring a love relationship with you as well. 
This song is a declaration of seeking God first. 

The heart of a person desiring for God to be first, for Him to know how much we love Him. When we make the time and effort to seek Him and get to know Him and His ways, there is a result. There is something that happens to you from the inside out. 




While you listen to this song, I hope you also remember this promise. 
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”-‭‭      Matthew‬ ‭6:33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Lyrics:

Before I bring my need

I will bring my heart

Before I lift my cares

I will lift my arms

I wanna know You

I wanna find You

In every season

In every moment

Before I bring my need

I will bring my heart

And seek You

First

I wanna seek You

I wanna seek You

First

I wanna keep You

I wanna keep You

First

More than anything I want, I want You

First

Before I speak a word

Let me hear Your voice

And in the midst of pain

Let me feel Your joy

Ooh, I wanna know You

I wanna find You

In every season

In every moment

Before I speak a word

I will bring my heart

And seek You

First

I wanna seek You

I wanna seek You

First

I wanna keep You

I wanna keep You

First

More than anything I want, I want You

First

You are my treasure and my reward

Let nothing ever come before

You are my treasure and my reward

Let nothing ever come before

I seek You

First
