Life Change Happens Now: 21 Days Devoted Day 1

DAY 1 OF 21
Matthew 6:33, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Deuteronomy 4:29
Seek God First
As we launch our 21 days of prayer and fasting, we as an EFA Family are choosing to seek God first in all things! Our time can easily get swept up in our busy schedules, families, jobs, and day-to-day life leaving us feeling overwhelmed, like there are never enough hours in the day to accomplish what we have set out to do. Matthew 6:33 says, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." When God is FIRST, everything else is FINE! This enables us to fight distraction and find peace, direction, and comfort in His presence standing on His Word. Today, as we make a choice to seek God first, we are reminded that our approval, direction, and counsel come from Him above all others. As we invite God to step into all areas of our life and reveal His desires for us as individuals, marriages, families, and a church family as a whole over these next 21 days, we anticipate to see life change through Christ! And remember, at EFA, we are all about seeing Life Change! It’s not just a change at the moment of salvation. It’s a change that we get to daily experience as each day we purpose in our heart to become more like Jesus. Today we declare that we at EFA will be a family who seeks God first in every aspect of our lives. 
Put It Into Practice
  • What does it look like to seek God first in your life?
  • How can you prioritize your relationship with God during this time of 21 days of prayer and fasting?
  • What areas do you need to surrender to God first, to seek His will for your life?
God, today I am choosing to put you first. I surrender every distraction that has taken your place in my life. Right now, I remove anything that is in your way and put you in your rightful place. I thank you that as I do this, you are taking care of every detail of my life. I trust you. I surrender my plans to make room for your plans and your will in my life. I love you, have your way. Amen!

First of all, thanks for putting this on our website! Love it! Second of all, what a great first day of the 21 days of prayer! Already super challenged, but very excited and expectant of what God has in store. Let’s go!

Obvious worship song that I would attach to today’s challenge and devotion would be Make Room by The Church Will Sing.
