Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 6

Day 219


"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,

and all these things will be given to you as well."

Matthew 6:33

My child, you're struggling with balance—as all My children do. You may think you can do all things, but you can't without Me. When you make Me your first priority, you'll be amazed at what you and I can accomplish together. Throw away your agendas, your fears, and your busyness. Exchange them for My balance. Like the spokes of a wheel, all your activities will turn smoothly when you are connected to the hub—Me.

Lord, I find no record of Your struggle with priorities. You treated all fairly, and Your life maintained perfect balance. You punched no clocks, wore no watch, and never tried to please everyone. You knew who You were and where You came from. You're truly a wonder.


Simple pleasures are the best. When God is here, who needs the rest?
