God’s Will For Your Life… Plain And Simple

One verse in the life of Isaac portrays the essence of God’s idea about how your priorities should be organized.

Gen. 26:25 And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged a well.

First: Isaac built an Altar. – A type of the House of God.

Second: He pitched his Tent. – The Tent represents your Family

Thirdly: A Well was dug. – The Well is what gives you sustenance in the wilderness.

  • That’s all there is to it.
  • It’s that simple!
  • First in our life should be our church.

Isaac did not go looking for a well, then pitch a tent and then make an Altar. Some folks are so greedy for money, they move to a town where there is no church. But they found a job that pays good money. They really needed the money. But they needed the Altar even more. Their priorities got out of order. They won’t mean to backslide. But they have put themselves and their families into a spiritual danger zone.

The Well is not to come before your Tent… or your family. The Tent or the Well should never come before the Altar.

Keep Church First in your life.

Make your Family more important than your Job

Your Job is the least important of the three. Yes. We all need a job, but God did not call us to be a Salesman, a Banker, a plumber or whatever. He called us to be a Saint.

Good Saints make the House of God #1 in their life.

  2. I enjoyed reading your article. The practical application of Scripture to our lives, is quite evident, and very well written! It is my desire to put God, and the things of God, first in my life, no matter what I am going through.
