To live life to its fullest and to accomplish and experience all that God has created you to do, God and His kingdom must be first. God is not to be one among many; He is to be first. The problem in most of our lives today is that God is merely in the vicinity; He is not first.
What far too many Christians do is mix a little of God with a lot of the world. As a result, they wind up not experiencing any of God because His kingdom is not of this world. When God is given your first energy, thoughts, time, and emotions, you get to see heaven both rule and overrule in your life. Learn from Dr. Evans how to put God first in your life.
