2 Chronicles 16:12 (KJV); And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.
A life lesson that I have religiously and indiscriminately lived by is to seek God first whenever anything negative happens to me.
Sadly, some Christians treat God as an emergency appeal. He is usually the last on a long list of trial and errors. They resort to Him after they have run through their relatives, friends, friends of relatives and relatives of relatives.
You must exercise a God-impulse.
What this means is that no matter what happens in your life, seek God first. Before you call the ambulance, talk to Him. Before you even consult your dearest and closest friend, talk to God!
As a parent, you ought to teach your children this form of God-dependence. Panadol should not be the first point of reference for a headache. Vitamins should not be the first option for flu. God must come first.
We live in a world of alternatives that are deliberate in their agenda of eroding the place of faith in God in the lives of Christians. Refuse to be a victim of this world view.
Like wisdom demands of us in Proverbs 3:6 (MSG); “Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.”
His name be praised!

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. You are the Alpha and Omega of every detail of my life. I look to You and to no other. You are my strength, my peace, joy and strong tower. My life is a testimony of one who hopes and leans entirely on You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
