00449 - FISH

The acronym FISH, which stands for "First I Seek Him”, is a powerful reminder of the Christian's primary calling: to seek God before all else. Amidst the whirlwind of life's demands and distractions, it's easy to sideline our relationship with the Divine, prioritising our worldly needs and desires. However, prioritising a relationship with God offers clarity, direction, and purpose in all other areas of life.

In Matthew 6:33 (NASB), Jesus advises, "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." This scripture highlights the essence of FISH.

By putting God at the forefront, we cultivate a deeper relationship with Him and position ourselves to receive His guidance, provision, and blessings in every facet of our lives. The FISH principle is a simple yet profound strategy, urging us to align ourselves with God's heart. Think that through, and make the changes needed.

Quote FISH - ‘First, I, Seek, Him’ - do that today.


Help me, Lord, focus my whole life more on You each day. Amen.
