Good Morning! Today’s devotional meditation is taken from 1 Samuel 12:24, which says,

“Only fear the LORD, and serve Him in truth with all your heart: for consider the great things He hath done for you.”

We must ask ourselves the question, “To what degree is God the priority in our lives?” Samuel issued the challenge to the people who had just asked for a king, where God had granted them one. Samuel  then Provoked them to remember who their true king is, the LORD Himself.

Samuel issued three declarations that would prove to them the LORD was their priority. One, they were to stand in reverential awe of Him; Two, They were to faithfully worship the LORD; and three, they were to carefully observe all of the things He has abundantly bestowed upon them and done for them throughout their lives.

It is absolutely important that we too meet these three challenges to see if the LORD is our priority. Do we stand in reverential awe of Him? Do we faithfully worship Him? And do we carefully reflect upon all of the things He abundantly endows and does for us? If we do, then He is our priority.
