"Noah consistently followed God's will and enjoyed a close relationship with Him." Genesis 6:9b, NLT
Noah loved God more than anything else in the world and served Him when no one else did. When you and I love God far above anything else in our lives, He smiles.
God's greatest desire is for us to love Him above everything else that is vying for our attention and to build a deep, intimate relationship with Him.
God wants so desperately for you and I to love Him with all our hearts. He longs for us to spend time with Him. Loving God should be the number one priority in our lives; not that big house with the white picket fence, not the size 2 body, not that promotion at work, not our kids being the best in everything, not the accolades of other women, not that new car, but God and only God should hold the number one seat in our hearts and lives.
"Love the Lord your God will all your heart and with all your soul and with
all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment."
Matthew 22:37-38, NIV
Is loving God your first priority? Is there anything in your life that you need to put aside in order for you to love God more and get to know Him better?
