True worshippers set their highest love upon the Lord. Let God be the centre of your love. Don’t love any man or yourself above God. The curse God placed on the woman in Genesis 3:16 – that your desire shall be to your husband and he will rule over you – is a curse that only works upon people that love human beings above God.
Anything you love above God becomes a snare to you, therefore it is in your best interest to set your love upon Him. Let your love for God tower above every other human being or possession. Before my wife and I got married, we told each other that we must always love Jesus more than each other and that is a major secret that is the foundation of the great marriage that God has given us today.
Some love their children more than God and God makes those children a snare to them. Be committed to family, but God must come first. He doesn’t share that first place with anybody. The Bible says that in all things, He must have the supremacy. There are ministers of the Gospel that the love for ministry has taken the place of the love of God in their hearts. His name is Jealous (Exodus 34:14) and it is better for you to be on the benefiting side of His jealousy than otherwise.
PRAYER: Lord, have mercy on me and help me that in my secret heart, no other love compares with You in Jesus’ name.
