Prioritising our Pursuits

Deuteronomy 4:29, “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” In life, our number one pursuit should be to find God. For when we find Him, we find His will, and as a result, we are be able to do His will. Jesus said, “For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother” (Mark 3:35).

Notice, to actively pursue God, there can only be only one strategy, and that is, you must “seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.” In order words, God must become your first priority. Many things we chase after end up being too stressful purely because our priorities are wrong. This concerns God-inspired priorities also. For instance, serving the Lord should never supersede your need to delight yourself in Him. Psalm 37:4 says, "Delight yourself also in the Lord, and [then] He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart" (Amplified). If you get pleasure or delight purely by serving Him, then your priorities are wrong. What’s likely to then happen is that your life will eventually become stressful and disheartening. Why? Because you are expecting God to grant you the desires of your heart through good works instead of adoration, worship and intimacy.
