"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable or error, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

Section Five, 



The last lesson this week, from the Great Teacher, Jesus - is:

"The Number One Priority"

I would have been most certain that LOVE would have been our 'número uno'.

Although this is the last devotional in this section,

it looks like I need to sit a while longer at the feet of Jesus

to learn more about Him, His teachings & our priorities

so I finally get it right or at least closer to #1.

[Here is a link to more video sermons of James Merritt, if you're interested, besides the YouTube]

"Believers understand that loving God should be the number one priority of their life. But, how do you keep Him in His rightful place?..."

"Time Well Spent"
by Dr. James Merritt


Scripture Readings for Week #39:

Matthew 6:25-33; Philippians 3:7-14; Mark 10:28-31; Matthew 16:24-27; Acts 28:23-31

as we read the devotional divided into these segments/subtitles:

"Ordering Our Priorities"
"You Can Get What You Want"
"I Must Experience a Connection with God in My Life"
"I Must Establish the Control of God over My Life"
"I Must Exhibit the Character of God in My Life"

These subtitles alone (or along with the scripture passages) might give us a glimpse in this

Teaching of Jesus on Priorities:

Experience - Establish - Exhibit

Connection - Control - Character

#1 God in My Life

"Let Jesus be the Center of Your Priorities"

Pretty sure that this is the reason my One Word for 2023 is JESUS!

"Lord, quicken in my heart a greater desire to seek after Your kingdom. Give me the will to desire, above all else, that Your will be done."

🙏{Continue to teach me how & what to prioritize like You, Jesus}🙏

You are my 'número uno'!

Now & Forever

And You are the BEST Teacher!
